Generate Customer Tokens In GraphQL

If the customer already created an account then we can get the generated customer tokens using the below GraphQL query.

So this token basically we use to authorize the request header field for any queries and mutations.

mutation {
generateCustomerToken(email: "cs.hemantsingh@gmail.com", password: "Admin$#21") {
token
}
}

Generate Customer Tokens

So when we try to generate the customer tokens in Magento 2 Using GraphQL then mutation needs a customer email address and password in the payload, as you can see in the above example how we have given customer details like email and password.

Token Validity in Magento is generally for 1 hour.

Change Token Validity: Admin > Stores > Settings > Configuration > Services > OAuth > Access Token Expiration > Customer Token Lifetime.
