User Signup

This example shows how you can implement user signup 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

You will only need to handle the DID Token. No more password handling โœจ


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/signup', method=['POST'])
def user_signup(self, name, 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)
user_meta = magic.User.get_metadata_by_issuer(issuer)
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))
if['email'] != email:
return UnAuthorizedError('UnAuthorized user signup')
# Call your application logic to save the user.
logic.User.add(name, email, issuer)
return HttpResponse()
