Simple Authentication in postman

Hi there!

I just got started with auth0 (and authentication for that matter) and I’m having a bit of trouble. I managed to get Auth0 working on a react app using a custom UI. We ask users to enter email and password an we authenticate that user with their credentials. After that we can ask auth0 to provide a token for use which we then use to send as an Authorization Header to our own application API. This all works great.

Here’s my problem. I’m trying to get a token in order to use it in postman. I want to be able to get tokens in postman so that I can send them as headers to my API and test de token decoding, user lookup, and perform my use cases.

I just can’t get the hang of it and I’m lost.

Hi @gemathus,

Welcome to Auth0!

I would start here:

Next, please post the exact errors you are seeing, or problems you are having. With postman, screenshots are very helpful.
