JWT Profile for Authorization Grants

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.10, last modified on October 07, 2021

The JWT Profile for Authorization Grants is one of the OAuth 2.0 grant types supported in ReadyAPI. With this grant, a client application sends a JSON Web Token (JWT) assertion to an authorization server to confirm its identity and get an access token. JWT can be issued by an identity provider or generated in ReadyAPI.
