Parse Method

Parses the encoded JWT.


async jwt.parse(): Promise<void>


This method parses, but does not verify the encoded JWT.

Take care when using this method as no verification or decryption is performed. This method may be helpful in cases where only header information is desired.

If verification or decryption is desired, use Verify or Decrypt instead. It is not necessary to call this method before calling Verify or Decrypt. Verify or Decrypt will both parse and decrypt the message.

When calling this method the headers are parsed. The HeaderParam and RecipientInfo events will fire and the HeaderParam* properties will be populated.

If the message is signed (not encrypted) the claims will also be parsed and the Claim* properties will be populated.
