The JWT values contain 3 different parts separated by a dot. The first part is the header that contains the signing algorithm used and the second part is your payload that may contain your userID. The third part is the signature. Since they are Base64 encoded you can import a Base64 JS library in NeoLoad and decode the content of the second part.

@nouredine thanks for the inputs.
Does neoload have a list of such libraries which i can add and use ?
or how do i get the common libraries to import directly in neoload?

NeoLoad does not embed a Base64 library so you need to import your own library from the menu Edit-->JS Libraries
