How do JSON Web Tokens work?

How do JSON Web Tokens work?

  1. The application or client requests authorization to the authorization server. This is performed through one of the different authorization flows. For example, a typical OpenID Connect compliant web application will go through the /oauth/authorize endpoint using the authorization code flow.
  2. When the authorization is granted, the authorization server returns an access token to the application.
  3. The application uses the access token to access a protected resource (like an API).
