urn:iAuthSession dependency with JWT token?

I’ve noticed that our redis instance is filling up with urn:iAuthSession entries.

I am just wondering how exactly these relate to the jwt tokens which we return during authentication. For example, if I purge this redis key, will it prevent tokens from working ?

No JWT Tokens are stateless, i.e. only the JWT is used to populate the partial Authenticated User Session.

OK that is great. What is the purpose of the urn:iAuthSession specifically ?

They’re the authenticated User Sessions used by normal Session Cookies.
