JWT (beta) connector


The JWT (Beta) connector allows for the generation, decoding, and validation of JSON Web Tokens (JWT). It does not connect to an external service for this functionality.


This connector is currently released as a beta version and is available only to select organizations. To participate in the beta program or provide feedback on bugs and enhancements, contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM).

The JWT (Beta) connector provides an interface for creating a JWT (beta) connection, the foundation used for generating instances of JWT (Beta) activities.

The JWT (Beta) connector is accessed from the design component palette's Project endpoints and connectors tab (see Design component palette).

Connector overview

This connector is used to first configure a JWT (beta) connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific JWT (Beta) connection and its activities are referred to as a JWT (Beta) endpoint:

JWT (Beta) activity types

  • Generate Token: Generates a JWT and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Decode Token: Decodes a JWT and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Validate Token: Validates a JWT and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.


This connector is a Connector SDK-based connector, which may be referred to by Jitterbit when communicating changes made to connectors built with the Connector SDK.

Prerequisites and supported API versions

The JWT (Beta) connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The JWT (Beta) connector uses the Java JWT. Refer to the API documentation for information on the schema nodes and fields.


If you experience issues with the JWT (Beta) connector, these troubleshooting steps are recommended:

  1. Check the operation logs for any information written during execution of the operation.

  2. Enable operation debug logging (for cloud agents or for private agents) to generate additional log files and data.

  3. If using private agents, you can enable connector verbose logging for this connector using this specific configuration entry of logger name and level:

    <logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.jwt" level="DEBUG"/>
  4. If using private agents, you can check the agent logs for more information.
