Understanding JWT authentication in AdonisJS


#1

I would like to understand the big idea of how JWT authentication works in AdonisJs.

Suppose I sign in a user to my application. I generate a JWT token for him. Now please tell me if my understanding is Ok:

  • This JWT token must be saved on the client side of the application so that the user can perform GET and POST requests to the backend
  • The user’s HTTP request must have Authorization = Bearer <token> embedded.

Is my understanding right or no?

Thank you.
