Static Generate Vivox Token
Player access to Vivox resources is controlled through Vivox access tokens. Vivox access tokens contain a payload that defines the privileged operation, are signed by the game server by using a token signing key, and are delivered by the client to the Vivox system when the player wants to perform a privileged operation.
A Vivox access token is similar to a JSON Web Token, but instead has an empty access token header.
Access tokens have the following characteristics:
- You can only use a token once. After you use a token for the privileged operation, it cannot be reused.
- Tokens expire even if they are never used. You cannot use a token cannot after the expiration time that is set by the token issuer.
Game clients require access tokens to perform operations in the Vivox system.
- Game client-generated tokens - use for prototyping or testing purposes
- Secure game server-generated tokens - use for the secure deployment of a production game and to avoid token errors due to user time settings
Note that before either a client or a server can generate a token, you need a token issuer and a token signing key. For more information, see Where do I find my custom application credentials? in the Vivox Developer Support Portal.
