Hello,

I need to know if theres a way of validate the token once u saved it in localStorage.

Right now im creating tokens with a certain duration (lets say 1day) and using them directly on the webservice.

 

So i need to know once u save it in a localStorage var how to validate if the token is already expired or not.

I was thinking to do this through ajax but i cannot figure out how to do it.

 

Until now i have something like this, i hope u guys can help me

 

function tokenValidator(t){

  const exampleUrl = "http://myserver/arcgis/rest/services/mylayer/sufolder/MapServer";
  const datat = {
    token: t
  };
  console.log(t);
  $.ajax({
    url: exampleUrl,
    dataType: 'json',
    data:  datat 
  })
  .done(isDone => {


      console.log(isDone);
      console.log("the token is still valid");


  })
  .fail(error => {
        console.log(error);
        console.log("token is not valid, redirect to login page");
  });
}
