Generate JWTs

You need to generate a JWT for each user. The JWT is used to authenticate the user.

In the following code remember to replace the APPLICATION_ID variable with id of your application:

vonage jwt --key_file=./private.key --acl='{"paths":{"/*/users/**":{},"/*/conversations/**":{},"/*/sessions/**":{},"/*/devices/**":{},"/*/image/**":{},"/*/media/**":{},"/*/applications/**":{},"/*/push/**":{},"/*/knocking/**":{},"/*/legs/**":{}}}' --subject=Alice --app_id=APP_ID

vonage jwt --key_file=./private.key --acl='{"paths":{"/*/users/**":{},"/*/conversations/**":{},"/*/sessions/**":{},"/*/devices/**":{},"/*/image/**":{},"/*/media/**":{},"/*/applications/**":{},"/*/push/**":{},"/*/knocking/**":{},"/*/legs/**":{}}}' --subject=Bob --app_id=APP_ID

The above commands set the expiry of the JWT to one day from now, which is the maximum.

Make a note of the JWT you generated for each user.

NOTE: In a production environment, your application should expose an endpoint that generates a JWT for each client request.
