    Posted 07-22-2019 09:15 AM
    Hello,

    I have an API that is generating a JWT token, and it is working correctly, im using the assertion "Encode JWT".
    My problem is when other API need to decode and validate this JWT, using "Decode JWT" assertion, i can decode and validate the signature correctly, but i cant validate expiration of this token, can anyone help me with that problem?

    JWT alone does not expire.
    Usually the field exp keeps the expiration timestamp.
    So you need to extract this field and use a compare assertion to check validity.
