Go JWT Authorization in Go Using the StandardClaims type by itself to parse a token


The StandardClaims type is designed to be embedded into your custom types to provide standard validation features. You can use it alone, but there's no way to retrieve other fields after parsing. See the custom claims example for intended usage.

mySigningKey := []byte("AllYourBase")

// Create the Claims
claims := &jwt.StandardClaims{
    ExpiresAt: 15000,
    Issuer:    "test",

token := jwt.NewWithClaims(jwt.SigningMethodHS256, claims)
ss, err := token.SignedString(mySigningKey)
fmt.Printf("%v %v", ss, err)
