Enable Assertions in Access Tokens

Assertions are used to embed parameters into tokens in order to generate a strong access token. You can also use these parameters later for various other processing functionalities. At the moment, WSO2 Identity Server only supports UserName as an assertion.

By default, assertions are not enabled in WSO2 Identity Server.

You can enable it by adding the following configuration to the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/deployment.toml file. You can add a username to an access token when generating the key, and verify it by Base64-decoding the retrieved access token.

include_username_in_access_token = true
