Session Authenticate

Released in 1.51.
Authenticates the API caller on the Symphony servers (pod) using a JWT.

❗️

Session Token Management

The token you receive is valid for the lifetime of a session that is defined by your pod's administration team. This ranges from 1 hour to 2 weeks.

You should keep using the same token until you receive a HTTP 401, at which you should re-authenticate and get a new token for a new session.

Datafeeds survive session expiration, you do not need to re-create your datafeed if your session expires.

🚧

Important

  • The following restrictions apply:
    • The JWT must have an expiration date between the current time and five minutes from the current time.
    • The JWT must be signed by a private key matching the public key saved for its subject ("sub").
  • For more information on creating and using an RSA session token, refer to RSA Bot Authentication Workflow.
