Refresh JWT

The accessToken obtained through the authentication method has a lifespan of 30 minutes. You will need to refresh it using refreshToken in order to obtain a renewed access token.

Your client application holds the responsibility of managing this refreshing process to ensure the access token is renewed before its expiration.

Request

  • refreshToken: String (required)
    • The refresh token.

Invocation

mutation Refresh {
  refresh(request: {
    refreshToken: "eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpZCI6IjB4YjE5QzI4OTBjZjk0N0FEM2YwYjdkN0U1QTlmZkJjZTM2ZDNmOWJkMiIsInJvbGUiOiJyZWZyZXNoIiwiaWF0IjoxNjQ1MTA0MjMxLCJleHAiOjE2NDUxOTA2MzF9.2Tdts-dLVWgTLXmah8cfzNx7sGLFtMBY7Z9VXcn2ZpE"

ℹī¸

Decode your JWT token

Use https://jwt.io/ to decode your JWT token. In the payload you will see some claims. See the field exp, this is the unix timestamp for when the token will expire.

LensClient

The LensClient does not expose a method to refresh the JWT as this is handled for you within the SDK itself.
