Token class


Bases: Token

Token implementation with an extra field token_type. This attribute will allow the distintion of the type of token being generated.

This token is an extension of the object and adds some extras that are used by the default Refresh backend provided by the package.


You are not entitled to use this object at all in your backends but if you are to use the examples given and the defaults without wasting too much time the package examples use this object to classiify the token_type in the claims.

token_type = None
