How to Get Claim Values from JWT Token

28.06.2018 (👁8489)

Query JWT Token Claim


How can one query the user of an Jwt token in the web server?


The Java WebToken contains so-called claims. This claim information can be requested during the exchange.

The user of a claim can be determined by a request in Asp Controller with Claims / Name

var user_in_token = HttpContext.User.Claims.Where(c => c.Type == ClaimsIdentity.DefaultNameClaimType).FirstOrDefault();


Result in this case:

Identity user name is: myUser



The jwtToken was created in the TokenController

public string create_UserToken(string sUsername)


    //-------------< create_UserToken() >-------------

    Claim[] claims = new Claim[] {

        new Claim(ClaimTypes.Name, sUsername), //*->User.Identity.Name or "Raimund Popp"

        new Claim(JwtRegisteredClaimNames.Email, "")




    //--< Create a Token >--

    JwtSecurityToken jwtToken = new JwtSecurityToken(

        issuer: "website_freelancer",    //ASP.NET Core web application

        audience: "webclients_freelancer"//client app

        claims: claims,

        notBefore: DateTime.Now,

        expires: DateTime.Now.AddDays(1),

        signingCredentials: new SigningCredentials(_secretKey, SecurityAlgorithms.HmacSha256)


    //--</ Create a Token >--



    string stringToken = new JwtSecurityTokenHandler().WriteToken(jwtToken);


    return stringToken;

    //-------------</ create_UserToken() >-------------






Among the claims you can include many predefined information


Claim[] claims = new Claim[] {

    new Claim(ClaimTypes.Name, sUsername), //*->User.Identity.Name or "Raimund Popp"

    new Claim(ClaimTypes.UserData, "ID=123"),

    new Claim(JwtRegisteredClaimNames.Email, "")
