Magic Admin Elixir SDK

The Magic Admin Elixir SDK provides convenient ways for developers to interact with Magic API endpoints and an array of utilities to handle DID Token.

Additional documentation can be found at


The package can be installed by adding magic_admin to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

def deps do
    {:magic_admin, "~> 0.8.0"}


To make API calls, it is necessary to configure your Magic secret key.

use Mix.Config

config :magic_admin, secret_key: System.get_env("MAGIC_SECRET")
# OR
config :magic_admin, secret_key: "sk_live_XXXXXXXXXXX"



Validate Tokens

The Token.validate/1 function returns :ok if the token is valid, or an error tuple with a message describing why the token is invalid.

:ok = Magic.Token.validate(did_token)
{:error, {:did_token_error, message}} = Magic.Token.validate(invalid_did_token)

The Token.validate!/1 function returns true if the token is valid, or raises a DIDTokenError with a message describing why the token is invalid.

true = Magic.Token.validate!(did_token)

Decode Tokens

The Token.decode/1 function returns a map of proof, claim and message, or an error tuple if it is malformed. claim is the parsed map of claims made by the decoded token. proof is the secp256k1 signature over a hash of message which is the JSON encoded version of claim.

{:ok, %{proof: proof, claim: claim, message: message}} = Magic.Token.decode(did_token)
{:error, {:did_token_error, message}} = Magic.Token.decode(invalid_did_token)

The Token.decode!/1 function returns a map of proof, claim and message, or raises a DIDTokenError if it is malformed.

%{proof: proof, claim: claim, message: message} = Magic.Token.decode!(did_token)

Get Token Attributes

The Token module also includes a couple of utility functions for accessing the issuer and public address attributes of a token.

issuer = Magic.Token.get_issuer(did_token)
address = Magic.Token.get_public_address(did_token)


Get User Metadata

Metadata for a user can be retrieved by supplying issuer, public key, or the full DID Token:

# => {:ok, %{email: "", issuer: "did:ethr:0x00000000000000000000000000000", public_address: "0x00000000000000000000000000000000"}}

Log Out a User

Logs a user out of all Magic SDK sessions by the supplied issuer, public address, or the full DID Token:



This Elixir library is based on the official Ruby implementation:
