@tanya53 I’ve done it, I can’t tell you how hard bings api is to use I didn’t use it, I used google and wish I hadn’t but @HermanFassett used it if I remeber so he might be able to help more if he isn’t busy
thanks for the help
@tanya53 for what it's worth, I found an external module for bing's API that made it a ton easier
Can someone tell me why token authentication is preferred over a session cookie for private APIs?
I mean it makes sense for public APIs that you can access without an interface, but what about one that just serves a single-page app?
It's something I never understood.

@noinkling from my understanding, the benefit is for scaling. jwt are stateless and are sent with every request so the server doesnt need to keep track of it thus removing some stress on server . It just receives the payload (with the auth info) from the jwt, parses it, and accepts it if it matches. I remember reading something about jwt authentication working better with mobile too, but im not too sure about it. Aside from those things, i dont see much difference between session vs jwt
