Access REST API to retrieve a JSON Web Token (JWT)

#1

Hi Everyone, I am new to Node-RED and not sure how to proceed.

I need to access a REST API to retrieve a JSON Web Token (JWT)

I can do this with the following curl command:

curl -X POST https://servername:1925/myapp/login -H 'content-type: application/vnd.myapp+json;version=1.0' -d '{ "userName":"myusername", "password":"mypassword"}'

I'm guessing I could use an http-request node but not sure how I would configure it or how I would store the JWT for use on the next request to my applications REST API.

The http request headers link in the cookbook should help you start to do this
