#Securing a REST API using JWT and MarkLogic

Please note that the project requires you to have Node.js v4.4.5 or above and MarkLogic v8.0 or above.

##Setup project Before setting up the project please make sure that the details in settings.js match the settings of your environment, if not, please update as necessary:

const username = 'admin';
const password = 'admin';
const host = 'localhost';
const port = 8000;

Please note that an out-of-box MarkLogic installation will have a REST API instance running on port 8000. g The first step would be to install the project dependencies by executing npm i.

To insert the initial dataset to the database you can execute npm run setup.

To delete all the documents that have been inserted via the installation please run npm run delete.

##Token creation To create a token please run npm run createToken.

##Start the application To start the application itself please run npm start.

Development mode is enabled if you start the application using npm run startDev. Development mode uses nodemon to start the application.

##Accessing the secured endpoint The easist way to access the secured endpoint is to use the following curl statement: curl -H 'Authorization: Bearer [access_token]' http://localhost:8080/api/characters where [access_token] is the token created using the previous step.
