CurrentToken()

Description

The CurrentToken function returns information about the active authentication:

  • When a token is used, a Reference to the token document is returned.

  • When a key is used, and the key exists in the current database (and not in a parent database), a Reference to the key document is returned.

  • When authentication is performed by an identity provider, an object containing the active JWT’s claims is returned.

For all other cases, CurrentToken emits an error. These cases include:

  • Authentication uses the "root" Fauna secret.

  • Authentication uses a key that has the database field set.

  • Authentication uses a key that exists in a parent database, for example, when using a scoped key.

Parameters

None.

Returns

For tokens, and keys defined in the current database, a Reference to the associated token/key.

For JWTs, an object containing the claims from the active JWT.

For connections using the "root" Fauna key, or a key that has the database field defined, an error is returned.

Examples

  1. The following query runs in the context of a Fauna token:

    try
    {
        Value result = await client.Query(
            CurrentToken()
        );
    
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
    }
    RefV(id = "1", collection = RefV(id = "tokens"))
    result, err := client.Query(
    	f.CurrentToken())
    
    if err != nil {
    	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
    } else {
    	fmt.Println(result)
    }
    {1 0xc000200210 0xc000200210 <nil>}
    System.out.println(
        client.query(
            CurrentToken()
        ).get());
    ref(id = "1", collection = ref(id = "tokens"))
    client.query(
      q.CurrentToken()
    )
    .then((ret) => console.log(ret))
    .catch((err) => console.error(
      'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
      err.name,
      err.message,
      err.errors()[0].description,
    ))
    Ref(Tokens(), "1")
    result = client.query(
      q.current_token()
    )
    print(result)
    Ref(id=1, collection=Ref(id=tokens))
    CurrentToken()
    Ref(Tokens(), "1")
