Precautions when using a JWT token

Hello all,

Over time, as our token is in JWT format, some customers have started to experience an increase of digits in the token.It is necessary to take into account the following considerations to avoid any integration failures:

  • If you persist the token in a database, the column used to store it should not have a length limit.
  • Our access tokens are currently around 80 bytes, with the new JWT format they could be up to 8KiB in length.
  • To ensure that this change won’t impact your integration, please be sure that your access token is not being stored in a fixed length variable. We would advice using dynamic memory allocation for this string value.

You can find more information in our documentation.
