User Login

This example shows how you can implement user login on the server side using the DID Token.

The example assumes:

  • You have already configured your client-side app with the Magic Client SDK
  • You are already using a Python Web Framework (Django, Flask, Cherrypy, etc.) Web framework's specific imports are omitted in favor of the simplicity of the example. Only the magic_admin related imports are shown below

It is important to always validate the DID Token before using.

from magic_admin import Magic
# A util provided by `magic_admin` to parse the auth header value.
from magic_admin.utils.http import parse_authorization_header_value
from magic_admin.error import DIDTokenError
from magic_admin.error import RequestError
@user.route('/v1/user/login', method=['POST'])
def user_login(self, email):
did_token = parse_authorization_header_value(
if did_token is None:
raise BadRequest(
'Authorization header is missing or header value is invalid',
magic = Magic(api_secret_key='<YOUR_API_SECRET_KEY>')
# Validate the did_token.
issuer = magic.Token.get_issuer(did_token)
except DIDTokenError as e:
raise BadRequest('DID Token is invalid: {}'.format(e))
except RequestError as e:
# You can also remap this error to your own application error.
return HttpError(str(e))
# Call your appilication logic to load the user.
user_info = logic.User.load_by(email=email)
if user_info.issuer != issuer:
return UnAuthorizedError('UnAuthorized user login')
return HttpResponse(user_info)
