Using kong-jwt2header plugin to get the claims in upstream

Hi team,

I have installed the kong-jwt2header plugin in the Kong with configuration config.token_required=true.

I also have configured the Identity service in kong which is used to generate the JWT token. As we set the config.token_required=true in kong-jwt2header plugin throws an error: {"error": "No valid JWT token found"} while requesting a JWT token from the Identity service.

Now I have two options

  1. Set the config.token_required=false Or
  2. Keep the Identity service outside the Kong gateway.
    So that JWT token is not required while requesting a token from an identity service.

Which is the best way from the above two? Or are there any better ways we can send the claims upstream?


Please Suggest us something.
