Bash script - challenge [part 3]. Authentication test (token) using the curl program.

in hive-111095 •  2 years ago 

Medium level.

Requires:

  1. An account on auth0.
  2. The curl program to be installed.
  3. Basic knowledge of Linux commands.

We need API to test (e.g. https://auth0.com).

Let’s go to API on auth0. (APIs->Settings->Test). Create & AUTHORIZE TEST APPLICATION

Get access_token

curl --request POST \
  --url https://dev-o1btb-69.eu.auth0.com/oauth/token \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '{"client_id":"tPOxbJ8QEMj8VVZEHPHt7uTM0uAHPd4v","client_secret":"xppOcAF8mqzRvZo9EBfPjIVZzdlfHPiVDyXwsOv1NL-Wx-4IKSMh3wwZllxtgZPF","audience":"https://dev-o1btb-69.eu.auth0.com/api/v2/","grant_type":"client_credentials"}'

And next try to authenticate in test using the curl program.

curl --request GET \
  --url https://dev-o1btb-69.eu.auth0.com/api/v2/ \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCIsImtpZCI6Ik5VSXdOalV4UWtJMVJFUkJOREJHUlVZME5qUXhRak0yTWprMFF6Y3lNVGt5TmpWQ1JFUXhNUSJ9.eyJpc3MiOiJodHRwczovL2Rldi1vMWJ0Yi02OS5ldS5hdXRoMC5jb20vIiwic3ViIjoidFBPeGJKOFFFTWo4VlZaRUhQSHQ3dVRNMHVBSFBkNHZAY2xpZW50cyIsImF1ZCI6Imh0dHBzOi8vZGV2LW8xYnRiLTY5LmV1LmF1dGgwLmNvbS9hcGkvdjIvIiwiaWF0IjoxNTgzNTA5NTE3LCJleHAiOjE1ODM1OTU5MTcsImF6cCI6InRQT3hiSjhRRU1qOFZWWkVIUEh0N3VUTTB1QUhQZDR2IiwiZ3R5IjoiY2xpZW50LWNyZWRlbnRpYWxzIn0.eRWje68f11VgEO3mdZ3O-ICIVWlJNAhWx3JOF5-qzNILG9ZGWJ7zMQjUHAKQA0GkxRhWNcwFXpVeNuDwDUcb0IMFmaLfXCpvufcH0Pp_OtGw06iivlZwIjEEmstDUw8CU1gXiIImOOfI8FydrGft33ktkRKr0AN9pxcGUP-LanoaVRC2Lxoa5aNHAiThYk-kAT78-emUBdGG4cE_vGp7psH7BoDgLB7BxKkUgfQV1zAw-rLmXAYq-0h8oqrLZgkEQRCkOpHXa07Ls1W2N754EQbD8z6QuyHcbeicUQmVah_oNkc45v7Qv2r3sqX0BxSIy58OC5ocDWXJ24qd0yZ7eQ’
