I’ve written about generating the JSON Web Token for Pure1 REST API authentication before. Mostly around PowerShell. Though of course many may not want to use PowerShell and prefer to opt for something like Python.
So here is the process.
We have a script posted on the support site here. But that actually doesn’t return the JWT, it creates a session. So it takes the next step after the JWT. But if you just want to generate the JWT so something else can authenticate it won’t do the trick. So I made some modifications and threw it on GitHub as a gist. You can get it here:
First off let’s review how to actually authenticate:
- Create a private/public key pair
- Enter the public key into Pure1
- Take the provided application ID and generate a JSON web token
- Send the JSON web token to Pure1 for an access token
I will walk through step 1-3. Using Python on Linux to generate the JWT.Continue reading “Generating a Pure1 REST JWT with Python”
