Description

The Tokens function provides access to the system collection that stores access tokens, created with the Login function. This is useful for:

  • Listing currently existing tokens

  • Creating tokens without credentials

  • Indexing tokens so that you can query tokens based on relationships with other documents.

If you have a reference to a specific token, acquired with Login, you can add custom fields to the token’s document using Update or Replace. Access tokens can be invalidated by calling Logout.

A token’s instance field contains a Reference to the associated identity document. See Tokens for details.

Parameters

An Set Reference for the available Tokens in the specified child database, or the current database if database is not specified.

Examples

  1. Create a token

    The following query lists any existing tokens (up to the pagination limit) in the current database:

    try

        Value result = await client.Query(
            Login(

        Console.WriteLine(result);

    }

    You can also create a token directly, without knowing the credentials for an identity document:

    try
    {
        Value result = await client.Query(
            Create(
                Tokens(),

    System.out.println(

    client.query(
      q.Create(
        q.Tokens(),

      )
    )
    .then((ret) => console.log(ret))
    .catch((err) => console.error('Error: %s', err))
    {
      ref: Ref(Tokens(), "293497693263626752"),
      ts: 1616160062000000,
      instance: Ref(Collection("users"), "1"),
      secret: 'fnEEEraY1WACAAQStphjIAYALk1agYtuTK3v_x8KTSs7bpe2scg'
    }
    result = client.query(
      q.create(
        q.tokens(),

    )
    print(result)

    try {

        )

      5.seconds
    ))} catch {

    }

    When you create a token directly, you can also set its ttl (time to live):

    try
    {
        Value result = await client.Query(
            Create(
                Tokens(),

                )
            )
        );
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
    catch (Exception e)

  2. List existing tokens

    try

            Paginate(Tokens())
        );
        Console.WriteLine(result);

        ).get());
    {data: [ref(id = "1", collection = ref(id = "tokens"))]}
    client.query(
      q.Paginate(q.Tokens())
    )
    .then((ret) => console.log(ret))
    .catch((err) => console.error('Error: %s', err))
    { data: [ Ref(Tokens(), "255391018093904394") ] }
    result = client.query(

    )
    print(result)

    }
    {data: [ref(id = "1", collection = ref(id = "tokens"))]}
    Paginate(Tokens())
    { data: [ Ref(Tokens(), "1") ] }

    The following query lists the References for any tokens (up to the pagination limit) in a child database named "child_db":

    try
    {
        Value result = await client.Query(
            Paginate(Tokens(Database("child_db")))
        );

    result, err := client.Query(
    	f.Paginate(f.ScopedTokens(f.Database("child_db"))))
    
    if err != nil {
    	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
    } else {
    	fmt.Println(result)
    }
    map[data:[]]
    System.out.println(
        client.query(
            Paginate(Tokens(Database("child_db")))
        ).get());
    {data: []}
    client.query(
      q.Paginate(q.Tokens(q.Database('child_db')))
    )
    .then((ret) => console.log(ret))
    .catch((err) => console.error('Error: %s', err))
    { data: [] }
    result = client.query(
      q.paginate(q.tokens(q.database("child_db")))
    )
    print(result)
    {'data': []}
    try {
      println(Await.result(
      client.query(
        Paginate(Tokens(Database("child_db")))
      ),
      5.seconds
    ))} catch {
      case unknown: Throwable => println("Error: " + unknown.getMessage())
    }
    {data: []}
    Paginate(Tokens(Database('child_db')))
    { data: [] }
  3. Use Tokens() in an index

    The following query creates an index on the internal tokens collection, so that tokens associated with a specific service can be queried:

    try
    {
        Value result = await client.Query(
            CreateIndex(
                Obj(
                    "name", "tokens_by_instance",
                    "permissions", Obj("read", "public"),
                    "source", Tokens(),
                    "terms", Arr(Obj("field", "instance")),
                    "values", Arr(Obj("field", Arr("data", "name")))
                )
            )
        );
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
    }

    }
    catch (Exception e)
