Validate app authorization

Check whether the authorization token obtained from SAFE Launcher is still valid.

This endpoint can be useful for apps that cache their authorization token to avoid making unnecessary authorization requests to SAFE Launcher (e.g. a user could restart an app while SAFE Launcher is still running).

The Authorization header field must be present in the request.


GET /auth


Field Description
Authorization The authorization token obtained from SAFE Launcher.
Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpZCI6Im5RT1poRFJ2VUFLRlVZMzNiRTlnQ25VbVVJSkV0Q2lmYk4zYjE1dXZ2TlU9In0.OTKcHQ9VUKYzBXH_MqeWR4UcHFJV-xlllR68UM9l0b4


On success, the HTTP status code in the response header is 200 (OK).


var request = require('request');
var endpoint = 'http://localhost:8100/auth';

var onResponse = function(err, response, body) {
  if (err) {
    return console.error(err.message);
  if (response.statusCode === 200) {
    return console.log('Token valid');
  console.error('Invalid token.', body);

request.get(endpoint, {
  auth: {
    bearer: constants.token // pass the auth token
}, onResponse);
