Simple JWT Login – Login and Register to WordPress using JWTIf I turned Force Login off all is fine again. Any ideas here? I believe this issue needs to be addressed by the JWT Authentication plugin. I tried to remove the filter with any luck so I try this variant instead and it seems to work perfect. Are there any downsides or risks? Thanks for your response, kevinvess! Unfortunately, this is an issue with the JWT Authentication plugin. My assumption is that it shares the same inadequacy ie. Thanks for your advice.

JWT Authentication for WP REST API
JWT token and user authentication is becoming widely popular. It makes sense to use a symmetric key when the same WordPress instance issues and consumes a token; besides this is the default method AAM uses that does not require any additional configurations. However, it is recommended to use an asymmetric key for integration with third-party applications. JWT token does not authorize any activities, so technically it should never be used to implement any code that allows or denies specific actions e. This way the rest of the HTTP request is processed as if a user was actually logged in. AAM has hundreds of features that you can utilize to define as granular access as needed. To be even more compliant with enterprise-level security standards, you can prepare access policies and attach them to any user. When JWT token is valid, it does not necessarily mean that it can be successfully used because the associated account can be blocked by a website administrator or expired. To learn more about managing website users please refer to the How to manage WordPress users article. Now, we established the base terminology and idea so it is time to show how to actually implement an authentication process with symmetric and asymmetric keys. If you are not familiar with a symmetric key, think about it as some secret string that is shared with two parties — one party that issues JWT token and another party, that validates it. You can redefine or periodically rotate the secret key with ConfigPress option authentication. That would be strongly recommended action if you need to share a secret with other application which is not the one that issues tokens. Another way to sign JWT token is to use asymmetric keys other words — public and private certificates. In this case several additional configurations have to be entered on the ConfigPress tab. The below two commands will do the magic:. The first command ssh-keygen generates the private key while the second command openssl consumes the private key to generate the public pair certificate. Now that you have those two files jwtRS To do so, go to the ConfigPress tab and use authentication. Use authentication. Your website can be both issuer and consumer of a token, in this case make sure that you have both certification files stored securely on your website. The most important is userId that contains numeric value for the valid user account in the system. Another important flag is revocable. Depending on its value, it determines if AAM has to perform additional validation against JWT token registry that each account has. By default all the issued tokens are revocable. Last but not least, with AAM 5. For Developers! It also has to return the valid associated array of claims that will be used to issue a JWT token. As you might notice, AAM issues revocable JWT tokens, which means that any token that is issued, is stored in the internal system registry and can be deleted by the webmaster at any time. This way if you start noticing suspicious activity or aware that token was compromised, you can just remove it from the associated account and it will be no longer valid token. Another fact about JWT token is that by default it expires in 24 hours however this is configurable value with authentication. This prevents the website from being overloaded with a large number of issued tokens either by accident or on purpose. The default value is 10 tokens per account and AAM implements the ring-buffer approach where the first token in the list is removed before a new token is added to the end of the list. This limitation is also configurable with authentication.

You can get the shared postman collection for this article here. Enable JWT Authentication. Your application is responsible for storing and managing received JWT token as well as any error messages. Parse response and store JWT token. There are two possible HTTP responses. If you want to modify the list of JWT claims, then use aam-jwt-claims-filter filter. In case you need to modify the HTTP response for successful or failed scenarios, use aam-jwt-response-filter filter. All subsequent requests that require user authentication may include Authentication header with Bearer JWT token. AAM does not use standard Authorization header as it is skipped by most Apache servers. Instead of doing all these crazy hacks in the. In case you need to use a different header for the JWT token, use aam-authentication-header-filter filter that should return valid JTW token in response. With the help of the free AAM plugin you do not have to worry about the technical aspect of the JWT issuer and validator. Instead you can focus on building awesome frontend or server-side applications that integrate with your WordPress website. Get notified about important updates and new features no more than one email per month. Define the secret key that is used to issue the JWT token.
