Currently our API doesn’t support authentication and authorization, all the requests we receive to any end point are done anonymously, In this post we’ll configure our API which will act as our Authorization Server and Resource Server on the same time to issue JSON Web Tokens for authenticated users and those users will present this JWT to the protected end points in order to access it and process the request.
