    Looking for maintainers (and Thank You to the community!)

    Hey folks! So Simple JWT has really come a ways in terms of popularity (further than I probably would have imagined). For that, I owe a big "Thank you!" to the community of Django and REST devs that have used and contributed to the project!

    However, for a while now I haven't had a lot of time to devote to addressing issues and feature requests. My professional life dominates my schedule and it also hasn't tended to involve much REST API development in recent years. But the library continues to enjoy widespread use. Contributors request/develop features and identify usability/security issues on a daily basis. I don't have enough time in my personal schedule to serve all of the community's needs! But I want to see the project continue to succeed.

    For that reason, I'm interested in hearing from any devs that wish to become involved in maintaining this project. I'm particularly interested in hearing from devs who have contributed to this project in the past and/or who can demonstrate experience with similar engineering projects. Significant histories of open source contribution are obviously a plus! If you're located in Boulder, CO (which is in the US), that's also a huge plus. We could potentially meet in person to get acquainted.

    Please reply to this issue if you think you match the above criteria! I'm looking forward to hearing from all of you!

  • Example SimpleJWT repositories: Contribute!

    Example SimpleJWT repositories: Contribute!

    Hi all! Due to the sheer number of requests and urges for #157 to be merged, I have created a template repository with a Django server ready-to-go. To generate a sample repository for SimpleJWT, please press the "Use this template" button so that you don't fork the repository; this way, you can rename the repository to whatever name you want (although please follow naming conventions of the React and Vue.js repos already setup. It'd be great if you could also transfer ownership to the SimpleJWT organization so that everyone knows about it -- i.e. viewable -- and can be maintained by the community).

    The template repository: https://github.com/SimpleJWT/drf-SimpleJWT-server-template

    Currently created repositories:

    • [X] iOS and Android (complete): https://github.com/Andrew-Chen-Wang/mobile-auth-example
    • [ ] Angular (in progress): https://github.com/SimpleJWT/drf-SimpleJWT-Angular
    • [X] React (Complete): https://github.com/SimpleJWT/drf-SimpleJWT-React
    • [X] VueJS (Complete): https://github.com/SimpleJWT/drf-SimpleJWT-Vue

    In the future:

    • React Native
    • Flutter browser
    • Flutter mobile

    There are other frontend frameworks like Angular (JS), Flutter (Dart), Ember (JS), etc. If I didn't create them, it just means I undervalue them (jk). I just don't want to get ahead of myself. If you want to contribute and you're using one of these frameworks, by all means @Andrew-Chen-Wang (i.e. mention me) in this issue, and I will create a repository for you.

    To reiterate, you will need unittest cases. For those who want the #157 merger, at least two frontend frameworks that are used on web browsers must be completed and tested to have the PR to be considered for merger. Not only that, it must use the PR's latest commit (do not use master branch; specify a commit SHA). I cannot stress this enough: security is number one priority. To publish a package with, imo, still a highly insecure PR since there is still no one who has given me a single test repository, SimpleJWT would be doomed in vulnerabilities and CVEs.

    So.... Thanks for contributing Djangonauts!

    TokenObtainSerializer is using authenticate function which makes it impossible use something else than User.USERNAME_FIELD for authentication.

    Let's say I set username_field to something else than User.USERNAME_FIELD, for example email (and assume User.USERNAME_FIELD equals to username). Is this going to work? authenticate function is going to use User.USERNAME_FIELD = username but serializer has received email field.

    Hello! Awesome library, keep up the good work!

    I encountered a bug in the latest release which boils down to the following lines https://github.com/jazzband/djangorestframework-simplejwt/blob/4d7c7649813f9eae4bd28ed17da685cd3a61f2fe/rest_framework_simplejwt/serializers.py#L141-L151

  • Has anyone implemented this experimental feature JWTTokenUserAuthentication backend?

    Has anyone implemented this experimental feature JWTTokenUserAuthentication backend?

    So I've been trying to build a Django project that handles authentication centrally on a standalone basis using django-rest-framework-simplejwt. And other Django Rest Framework projects that use this for authentication. All projects will have their own databases.

    I am not quite sure what goes into the database section in settings.py of both the auth project and other projects. The documentation mentions something about JWTTokenUserAuthentication backend as an experimental feature and is quite inadequate.

    I have done some research and found I may have to use a remote user login or set up a proxy server. Can someone point me in the right direction?

  • Why is there a database hit at every request ?

    Why is there a database hit at every request ?

    Hi and thanks in advance,

    I've successfully setup JWT authentication using django-rest-framework-simplejwt and React but I'm still very confused about the advantages and specifically database hits. I'm using simplejwt with ROTATE_REFRESH_TOKENS': True 'BLACKLIST_AFTER_ROTATION': True, when my access_token expire I ask for a new one through /api/token/refresh and it blacklist old tokens, I'm using axios interceptors to perform that automatically.

    But in my understanding the benefits of JWt is that they are stateless, meaning I don't have to hit the user database table everytime I want to make an a request that needs authentication permission. The problem is even with a simple view like this :

    class IsConnecteddAPI(APIView):
        permission_classes = [permissions.IsAuthenticated]
        def get(self, request, *args, **kwargs):
            data = "You seem to be connected"
            return Response(data, status=status.HTTP_200_OK)

    using django-silk I see that it still performs 1 query to my user table when my access token is valid , is that normal ? I'm really confused.

    Here are django silk outputs screen1 screen2 screen3 screen4

    Isn't get_user from https://github.com/SimpleJWT/django-rest-framework-simplejwt/blob/master/rest_framework_simplejwt/authentication.py hiting the user object everytime ?

    I've already asked the question on reddit and SO and they advised me to remove AuthMiddleware, so I removed both 'django.middleware.csrf.CsrfViewMiddleware' and 'django.contrib.auth.middleware.AuthenticationMiddleware' but I still get the same result. Setting permissions_classes to AllowAny doesn't vhange anything either.

    That's my axios code if needed :

    import axios from "axios";
    const baseURL = "http://localhost:5000";
    const axiosInstance = axios.create({
      baseURL: baseURL,
      timeout: 5000,
      headers: {
        Authorization: localStorage.getItem("accesstoken")
          ? "JWT " + localStorage.getItem("accesstoken")
          : null,
        "Content-Type": "application/json",
        accept: "application/json",
    const axioAnonymousInstance = axios.create({
      baseURL: baseURL,
      timeout: 5000,
      headers: {
        "Content-Type": "application/json",
        accept: "application/json",
      (response) => {
        return response;
      async function (error) {
        const originalRequest = error.config;
        if (typeof error.response === "undefined") {
            "A server/network error occurred. " +
              "Looks like CORS might be the problem. " +
              "Sorry about this - we will get it fixed shortly."
          return Promise.reject(error);
        if (
          error.response.status === 401 &&
          originalRequest.url === baseURL + "token/refresh/"
        ) {
          window.location.href = "/login/";

        if (
          error.response.data.code === "token_not_valid" &&
          error.response.status === 401 &&
          error.response.statusText === "Unauthorized"
        ) {
          const refreshToken = localStorage.getItem("refreshtoken");
          if (refreshToken) {
            const tokenParts = JSON.parse(atob(refreshToken.split(".")[1]));
            // exp date in token is expressed in seconds, while now() returns milliseconds:
            const now = Math.ceil(Date.now() / 1000);
            if (tokenParts.exp > now) {
              return axioAnonymousInstance
                .post("/api/token/refresh/", { refresh: refreshToken })
                .then((response) => {
                  localStorage.setItem("accesstoken", response.data.access);
                  localStorage.setItem("refreshtoken", response.data.refresh);
                  axiosInstance.defaults.headers["Authorization"] =
                    "JWT " + response.data.access;
                  originalRequest.headers["Authorization"] =
                    "JWT " + response.data.access;
                  return axiosInstance(originalRequest);
                .catch((err) => {
                  // redirect ro /login here if wanted
                  console.log("axios Safe Instance error");
                  // window.location.href = "/login/";
            } else {
              console.log("Refresh token is expired", tokenParts.exp, now);
              window.location.href = "/login/";
          } else {
            console.log("Refresh token not available.");
            window.location.href = "/login/";
        // specific error handling done elsewhere
        return Promise.reject(error);
    export { axiosInstance, axioAnonymousInstance };

    ( I know I shouldn't use localStorage but whatever )

    and I would typically just call this function to make the simple request to the view written above :

     const IsConnected = () => {
          .then((response) => {
            if (response.status === 200) {
              console.log("Is connected : CONNECTED ");
            } else {
              console.log("IS connected : not connected");
          .catch((error) => {
            console.log("Is connected : NOT CONNECTED");

  • Why I can't delete OutstandingToken via django-admin

    Why I can't delete OutstandingToken via django-admin

    I'm using Blacklist app and if I try to delete one of my users I get the error message

    Deleting the selected user would result in deleting related objects, but your account doesn't have permission to delete the folowing types of objects: - outstanding token

    The OutstandingTokenAdmin's has_delete_permission method always returns False. So even admin user with superuser status can't delete this.

    Is there a reason to forbid deletion of OutstandingTokens?

    It's strange but I'm new to all this jwt stuff and maybe I miss something.

  • Using a custom User model with SimpleJWT

            if not company_name:
                raise ValueError("User must have a company name.")
            user = self.model(email=self.normalize_email(email),
            return user
        def create_superuser(self, email, company_name, password):
            user = self.create_user(email=self.normalize_email(email),
            user.is_admin = True
            user.is_staff = True
            user.is_superuser = True
            return user
    class CustomUser(AbstractUser):
        id = models.UUIDField(primary_key=True, default=uuid.uuid4, editable=False)
        username = None
        email = models.EmailField(verbose_name="email", max_length=60, unique=True)
        company_name = models.CharField(max_length=30)
        # The following fields are required for every custom User model
        last_login = models.DateTimeField(verbose_name='last login', auto_now=True)
        date_joined = models.DateTimeField(verbose_name='date joined', auto_now_add=True)
        is_admin = models.BooleanField(default=False)
        is_active = models.BooleanField(default=True)
        is_staff = models.BooleanField(default=False)
        is_superuser = models.BooleanField(default=False)
        USERNAME_FIELD = 'email'

    but when I create users of this model and try to login into my app with them instead of getting a JWT token like before I get a message stating that there are no active users with those credentials...

  • Customize which user can login

    Customize which user can login

    For one of my projects, I want a user first to confirm their email before they can log in. For this, I use the package django-simple-email-confirmation which extends the user with a boolean is_confirmed. To achieve this behavior I have to either do some syncing with the build-in user.is_active or I have to overwrite TokenObtainSerializer.validate().

    So what I would like to propose is a setting SIMPLE_JWT['user_login_rule'] = 'path.to.some.file.function' which returns a boolean and is called here in the TokenObtainSerializer.

    This would also resolve the issue #137

    If desired I could create a PR.

  • How should I create or authenticate a JWT per view?

    How should I create or authenticate a JWT per view?


    Is there a way to generate or authenticate a token to grant access only for a specified view and be invalid on other views?

    This may sound odd but I want to issue a JWT token to share some info with frontend and grant access to a sensitive view, I'm using JWT at another view too but it is less important than this one.

    When I started to think about both, I found that if someone swapped one with another it will pass through verification and authentication as it's a valid JWT token issued by me but not for a specific view, so is there a way to do that?

    Should I make my custom JWT authentication class, verify class and check for my required payload too? or there is something more simple? or should I use something else, but JWT is the one here because you need to share some info with the client.

    Should I change secret and issue the new one with a different secret? should I use PyJWT? I don't care about linking it to a user, I'm even using AnonymousUser for the existing one, what do you think?

    Thanks, everyone

            token = super().get_token(user)
            # Add custom claims

            return token

  • "Token is invalid or expired" error because cryptography package was not installed

    We are using a microservice architecture where we create our jwt tokens in a different service. We added today django-rest-framework-simplejwt for verifying jwt tokens in one of our django services. While adding this we were faced with the error message that the Token is invalid or expired. We are using RS256 and checked that the token and public key were valid. We tracked down the issue and found out that PyJWT raised an issue that RS256 algorithm does not exist.

    This was because the cryptography was not installed in the virtualenv. Also, we are using pip-tools for dependency management. After adding cryptography to the dependencies manually it now works fine.

    Did anyone else faced the same issue?

  • Implement LastLogin when user is succesfully logged in on validation

    Implement LastLogin when user is succesfully logged in on validation

    I think this functionality should come with the built in serializer since it just has to update the User.last_login column of the User model.

    Also extending the view serializer and re-creating new routes just to add 1 or 2 lines of code that would easily cover the use case of many people is too much of a work for something that could come with the built-in serializer

  • Validate without database query

    Validate without database query

    For me the attractive feature of JWT is the ability to provide validation of a request without the need to make a database query.

    However, in the current implementation here, it appears that the related User model is queried and populated on every request.


    Is it feasible to remove this query, or is the User object required by the underlying django-rest-framework?

  • AUTH_USER_MODEL used before it is installed

    AUTH_USER_MODEL used before it is installed

    I'm trying to integrate this package into my API and it's giving me problems when I'm trying to run the server. I get the error

    django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured: AUTH_USER_MODEL refers to model 'user.User' that has not been installed

    user.User refers to a custom User model written to hold some extra information. The error occurs when in state.py you call get_user_model() to get the User model. I think it's called before the INSTALLED_APPS are actually installed, which is a problem. I even tried moving the user app to be before all the other apps being installed, including rest_framework and api, but that didn't fix anything. Any ideas? I'm happy to post code, but I don't know exactly what you want. I did exactly what the README says to do. Thanks in advance!

  • Allow User creation after token validation.

    Allow User creation after token validation.

    Hi ! I've successfully set up a Django project that validates JWTs from AWS Cognito using the JWK_URL setting.

    I ran into a problem though, which is the fact that users making requests to my API don't necessarily have a corresponding record in the local User table, so JWTAuthentication.get_user runs into problems. I would like to have the chance to create these users.

    I ended up subclassing JWTAuthentication and made it work by overriding the get_user method.

    I think this could be a good improvement to the library, and is probably a common requirement from users in positions like mine (using external auth).

    With a bit of guidance as to how exactly this could/should be implemented, I'd be glad to work on a small PR.

  • Allow other header claims in tokens

    Allow other header claims in tokens

    As defined in RFC7515, section 4.1, tokens can include several more header claims than just typ and alg as allowed from this.

    I have tried to include a kid one as I use signed token but I couldn't.

    Using pyjwt I was able to add it to the token string but when I called RefreshToken(token) constructor it removed all custom headers.

    I have checked in the doc and nothing seems to cover this use case.

    I haven't digged much in the code though.

    As for kid claim, I suggest to include it by default in header when the token is signed.

    (AuthLib documentation for reference)

    This is somehow related to #491 as kid might be useful when combined with JWK endpoint.

    How to archive the two cookie split with simple jwt?

    Hello, I am trying to make a solution with this approach: https://medium.com/lightrail/getting-token-authentication-right-in-a-stateless-single-page-application-57d0c6474e3

    Jump to the "section/header": The Cookie Split

    What is the right way to do this? Would it be to override the post method in TokenObtainPairView ? And create the cookies I want? I guess I would need to create a middleware, to combine the two cookies into the "right" header, and then it should work with the way simplejwt work today. So my question is basically how to set the cookies.

  • If the blacklist app is enabled mark rotated refresh tokens as outstanding

    If the blacklist app is enabled mark rotated refresh tokens as outstanding

    The token blacklisting itself works without this (the OutstandingToken object will be created when adding a token to the blacklist), but the list of outstanding tokens would very quickly get out of date in the presence of refresh token rotation, and be unusable for any other purpose (for example being able to tell which users have valid outstanding tokens).

    Is there a way to generate a token for a user with a custom serializer?

    I see that https://django-rest-framework-simplejwt.readthedocs.io/en/latest/creating_tokens_manually.html provides a way to create tokens manually, which is awesome!

    However, it looks like https://django-rest-framework-simplejwt.readthedocs.io/en/latest/customizing_token_claims.html can be used to override the views only and not so much this token generation method?

    I need to generate a token with custom claims, is this possible using this framework?

  • Is there a way to expose an endpoint for JWK?

    Is there a way to expose an endpoint for JWK?

    I'm looking to expose the JWT public keys as an endpoint, so things like Nginx or Envoy can verify the token. I know this framework adds in /token/verify endpoints so that the entire token can be passed and verified; but some of these seem to prefer grabbing the keys and validating themselves.

    I see the jwk_url in the docs, but that seems like an optional thing to embed this URL into the token itself. But perhaps i'm missing something?

    Thanks for the help.
