I have been working on real time messaging using websocket, I have some channels protected but i cannot access them it keeps returning invalid jwt token, How do I pass in the token while using tools like

  • smart websocket client
  • advanced rest client
  • simple web socket client

I am using adonisJs on the backend.

you should pass the JWT in query params like ws://myapp.com/?jwt=long_jwt_xyz or if you can set JWT on sub-protocols section of WS config

To test it, you should try Firecamp

Here is how it looks for WS testing...
