This lab focuses on configuring an OAuth server to protect an API using OAuth access tokens. Throughout the course of the lab, you’ll adjust the token lifetime of your access tokens, create a custom scope in your OAuth server, add a custom claim to the JWT access token, and learn the implications of the decisions of how to validate these tokens.
