I have generated JWT token. I added it as String argument in one method I have to call. Is there a way to validate that String token if it is expired, valid, etc?

  • Out of the box - no. This sounds like an XY problem - what are you trying to achieve?

  • When I send some request, sometimes I got invalid or expired token error. I want to prevent sending request if token is expired or invalid. @identigral

  • Are you sending from Salesforce to an external service or inbound to Salesforce?

  • Yes, from Salesforce to an external API. @identigral

  • If you're generating a token in Apex, take a look at salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/324426/… .

Salesforce does provide Apex support for JWS/JWT:




Although unfortunately the JWS class only supports generating signatures and not verifying them. However you can verify the signature yourself:

Using the Crypto.verify() method to verify a JWT signature

Once you've verified that the payload is valid, then you can examine any of the Claims to make sure that they are acceptable.

  • Thanks, but Crypto.verify asks for publicKey which I do not have. How to resolve this?
