Representational state transfer (REST) is an architectural style that gives a coordinated set of constraints to the design of components in a distributed hypermedia system used to design networked applications. RESTful systems typically communicate over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) with the same HTTP verbs (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.) that web browsers use to retrieve web pages and to send data to remote servers. REST interfaces with external systems using resources identified by Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that can be operated upon using standard verbs.

Has been almost a year that I switch to Auth0 in order to manage my customer's access to the dashboard of my application. Nowadays I need to implement access for a RESTFULL API.

If I follow the instructions in order to secure the NodeJS app using JWT it works like a charm. The issue is that I am not properly sure on the implementation for the end user in order to get the token needed for access this API.

I thought of creating the tokens on the dashboard or just use a server side implementation for the login/authentication. I did the last using the access to my own database before and worker amazingly. My issue is that I am not completely sure on how to do it for the end user using Auth0.

Would be great if you can guide me in order to implement the login/authentication side of the API using auth0 and nodejs.
Hi, Experts,

I am building a node JS web app that will call REST API from one login user info.


spefically from


the goal is to attain this


but when you use the example curl request you get this:

[code]curl -XGET "https://openid-connect.onelogin.com/oidc/me" \
> -H "Authorization: Bearer 0e4e2d02323de1e71dda7843d968f20425965488d407fbc952927389b63517ac5663"
{"error":"invalid_token","error_description":"invalid token provided"}[/code]


[code]curl -XGET "https://domain.onelogin.com/oidc/me" \
> -H "Authorization: Bearer 0e4e2d02323de1e71dda7843d968f20425965488d407fbc952927389b63517ac5663"
{"error":"invalid_token","error_description":"invalid token provided"}[/code]

the flow is API call goes to one login and one login passes access key so you can get user info. when you try to call user info you get an error.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you
I have two aspx pages, default.aspx and index.aspx .
Index page has lot of controls using multiple dropdowns, one for world region, another dropdown for country, another for capitals .
 I want to open index.aspx page from default.aspx page as a bootstrap modal pop up, and load these dropdowns . users can select these and save them in the database.
I have created a mark up in the default.aspx page for the bootstrap Modal.
I am trying to save/load these values in the dropdown based on the user id . so I have this so far, see below.
I added a WebMethod attribute to my function in index.aspx.cs page.

do i make individual calls to populate each drop down ? all the values for each dropdown needs to saved in the database.
when user clicks saves button , how do i send all the selected value in all the dropdown list to be saved? what would that function look like?

$().ready(function() {
        type: "GET",
        url: "Default.aspx/GetRegions",
        data: "{}",
        contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
        dataType: "json",
        success: function(data) {
            $.each(data.d, function(index, item) {
                $("#ddRegions").get(0).options[$("#ddRegions").get(0).options.length] = new Option(item.Display, item.Value);
        error: function() {
            alert("Failed to load genders");


I am wanting to use REST api with siteminder 12.8 to simply pull a lit of partnerships.
Would anyone have experience setting this up?
I am trying to create a method which can retrieve JSON objects.  I’m using the Jama API (https://dev.jamasoftware.com/rest)
To simplify it I am using RestSharp
I start by using the Jama swagger tool to test the interface.  This produces a Response Body.  I take this response body and in visual studio create a new class using the paste special ‘paste JSON as classes’ command.

This results in a new class:

public class Item

        public class Rootobject
            public Meta meta { get; set; }
            public Links links { get; set; }
            public Datum[] data { get; set; }

            public static explicit operator Rootobject(List<object> v)
                throw new NotImplementedException();

        public class Meta
            public string status { get; set; }
            public DateTime timestamp { get; set; }
            public Pageinfo pageInfo { get; set; }

        public class Pageinfo
            public int startIndex { get; set; }
            public int resultCount { get; set; }
            public int totalResults { get; set; }

        public class Links
            public DataFieldsLookup5 datafieldslookup5 { get; set; }
            public DataLockLockedby datalocklockedBy { get; set; }
            public DataFieldsLookup6 datafieldslookup6 { get; set; }
            public DataFieldsLookup3 datafieldslookup3 { get; set; }

Two or Single Request

Assume we expose both controller and service methods as REST APIs

When we call a controller method - 2 HTTP request or One Http Request will be made ???

Calling service API via REST API will be another HTTP request?

Please advise.
I went through the URL - https://dzone.com/articles/quick-guide-to-microservices-with-kubernetes-sprin where both the controller and the service methods are exposed as REST API's

The confusion comes and raises the question whether we need to expose controller methods as REST APIs or Service methods are APIS

if we make both of them as REST APIs then when we call a controller methods - 2 HTTP request might be sent and will cause performance issue.

Please advise.
I have a field in a SQL 2014 database that started disappearing after a backup (full or transaction). The rest of the fields are populated, just the one gets emptied. We noticed it during an upgrade of the front end application.

I am trying to write some VBA to make a REST API call. This call needs to fall into three stages.

Stage 1 send some authentication information.

I have a URL will I must make a POST call to include a payload of a "username" and "Password". This will then return a authorisation token.

Stage 2

I need to use the token mentioned in Stage 1 to authenticate.

Stage 3

I need to pass a payload to a slightly different URL that contains the name of the query I wish to execute

I have made available the Microsoft XML, v3.0 to my MS Access database.

Can anyone help me design this VBA code?

I have a PayPal buy it now client side REST on my website. Payment process is working fine on my end, but the customer, after he pays, doesn't see the payment confirmation screen. I've read on PayPal Dev that I must show a confirmation without redirecting, which is something that I am doing now.

You must show a confirmation without redirecting the page. If you redirect the page, the actions.payment.execute() and actions.payment.get() functions are not available.

This is the code I am using:

<script src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/api/checkout.js"></script>
Dim price : price = "134.96"
<div id="paypal-button-container"></div>
<input type="hidden" name="price" id="price" value="<%=price%>" />
<script src="payment.js"></script>  

Open in new window

// JavaScript Document

env: 'sandbox', // sandbox | production

        style: {
        label: 'checkout',
        size:  'medium',    // small | medium | large | responsive
        shape: 'pill',     // pill | rect
        color: 'silver'      // gold | blue | silver | black

        client: {
            sandbox:    'aaaaaaaaa',
            production: '<insert production client id>'

        // Show the buyer a 'Pay Now' button in the checkout flow
        commit: true,

        // payment() is called when the button is clicked

Hi All,

I'm developing an app that the user can see which of its contacts are registered for the app.
Say I have a data base of users in the cloud what should be the rest end point for such operation?
Should I send all of the user's contact to the endpoint and the server will make the set intersection between the input contact set the its all registered contacts?
But what if the user has many contacts?

Thank u in advance
