Built in Auhtorization feature

JWT Token authentication has become very popular and one of the main tools to provide authorization and authentication.
JSON Web Token (JWT) is an open standard (RFC 7519) that defines a compact and self-contained way for securely transmitting information between parties as a JSON object. In authentication, when the user successfully logs in using their credentials, a JSON Web Token will be returned. 

Whenever the user wants to access a protected route or resource, the user agent should send the JWT, typically in the Authorization header using the Bearer schema. This can be, in certain cases, a stateless authorization mechanism. The server's protected routes will check for a valid JWT in the Authorization header, and if it's present, the user will be allowed to access protected resources. If the JWT contains the necessary data, the need to query the database for certain operations may be reduced, though this may not always be the case.

It would be really helpful to have a built in functionaly ".Authorization(token)" that adds an authorization header to all the requests made by the grid.

Hello, Karim,

We have an open issue requesting this functionality to be available out of the box. Its priority is at 5, which is our highest so hopefully, it will be added to our workflow very soon:

All the issues have a priority and severity. The severity is how the functionality is affected while the priority has to do with the popularity of the issue.

Kind Regards,
Alex Hajigeorgieva
