Get a token

Problem

You need to retrieve a token from the current database.

Solution

Use the Get function:

client.query(
  q.Get(q.Ref(q.Tokens(), '1'))
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
  'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
  err.name,
  err.message,
  err.errors()[0].description,
))
{
  ref: Ref(Tokens(), "1"),
  ts: 1631739421230000,
  instance: Ref(Collection("users"), "1"),
  hashed_secret: '$2a$05$HgbE0YEse2i7.5F4a5MHm.wGDmk4C3kMrP7NJpP40GrO06DgP584q'
}
result = client.query(
  q.get(q.ref(q.tokens(), "1"))
)
print(result)
{'ref': Ref(id=1, collection=Ref(id=tokens)), 'ts': 1631739698710000, 'instance': Ref(id=1, collection=Ref(id=users, collection=Ref(id=collections))), 'hashed_secret': '$2a$05$HExlDNKKmJP69pnpzVmf1.nsTDOJ5FbgfwUv9z1CXg./nQBsT70ny'}
result, err := client.Query(
	f.Get(f.Ref(f.Tokens(), "1")))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
map[hashed_secret:$2a$05$a77WPbm2U.Ms6GSw6oNp5uOZMefME5e.hLQxIhsgh/h2ceKQpxS8W instance:{1 0xc000180660 0xc000180660 <nil>} ref:{1 0xc0001804b0 0xc0001804b0 <nil>} ts:1631739851370000]
try
{
    Value result = await client.Query(
        Get(Ref(Tokens(), "1"))
    );
    Console.WriteLine(result);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
}

Discussion

Once a key has been created, its secret is only displayed at that time. Afterwards, it is no longer possible to retrieve the key’s secret. If you have lost the secret associated with a key, delete the key and create a new one.
