JWT verifier exception: com.auth0.jwt.exceptions.JWTDecodeException: The token was expected to have 3 parts, but got 5

What goes wrong? I am passing the token received from the front end here

Hi @sandervaneck,

It sounds like you may be dealing with an opaque access token. Auth0 uses this proprietary format, which includes 4 periods and 5 parts, for access tokens that are issued when no audience parameter is specified in the request.
