Checks the validity of a JSON Web Token.

This method is non-queuable, meaning that during offline mode, it will be discarded and the callback return an error.

checkToken(token, callback) #

Arguments Type Description
token string The token to check
callback function Callback handling the response

Note: this method sends an unauthenticated API call to Kuzzle, meaning it ignores the JWT Token property, even if it has been set.


Callback Response #

Returns a JSON object with a valid boolean property.
If the token is valid, an expiresAt property is set with the expiration timestamp. If not, a state property is set explaining why the token is invalid.
