$url = '';
$username = 'myUsername';
$password = 'myPassword';

$client = new JWTApiBase($url, $username, $password);

// Perhaps we want to update the email address of user at 1234
$data = json_encode(array(
'id' => '1234',
'email_address' => ''

// append the endpoint "user/" to our client base url, send our data to it
$response = $client->apiRequest($data, $client->getUrl('user/'));

// print out the repsonse



JWT Api Base is a simple wrapper class for handling JWT auth and endpoint requests.


Modify the first few lines to define the api base auth URL for your JWT-auth enabled API, if needed change the username and password parameters to mirror the username and password fields required by your API provider.

For example:

define("URL_SUFFIX_AUTH", 'api-auth/');
define("PARAM_USERNAME", 'username');
define("PARAM_PASSWORD", 'password');

Changes to:

define("URL_SUFFIX_AUTH", 'jwt-auth/');
define("PARAM_USERNAME", 'user');
define("PARAM_PASSWORD", 'pass');
