Secret Key

Your secretKey is inside the config.ts file. You must change the default value to one that only you know.

Generate Token

To generate an access token, you must use your SECRET_KEY.

Using the route:

  curl -X POST --location "http://localhost:21465/api/mySession/eUsouSeCreTo/generate-token"


  "status": "Success",
  "session": "mySession",
  "token": "$2b$10$duQ5YYV6fojn5qFiFv.aEuY32_SnHgcmxdfxohnjG4EHJ5_Z6QWhe",
  "full": "wppconnect:$2b$10$duQ5YYV6fojn5qFiFv.aEuY32_SnHgcmxdfxohnjG4EHJ5_Z6QWhe"

Using Token

Save the value of the "full" response. Then use this value to call the routes.
