Other configurations available in the bit project templates are as follows:

    "Audience": "Boilerplate",
    "IdentityCertificatePassword": "P@ssw0rdP@ssw0rd", // It can also be configured using: dotnet user-secrets set "AppSettings:IdentitySettings:IdentityCertificatePassword" "P@ssw0rdP@ssw0rd"
    "BearerTokenExpiration": "0.01:00:00", // Format: D.HH:mm:ss
    "RefreshTokenExpiration": "14.00:00:00", // Format: D.HH:mm:ss
    "PasswordRequireDigit": "false",

Note: IdentityCertificatePassword referring to the password of the IdentityCertificate.pfx file in the Server project. To store the public key and other necessary information for validating incoming JWT tokens, a PFX file is employed. The same PFX file is utilized to empower the ASP.NET Core Data Protection API. Various methods exist for creating a PFX file. You may choose to follow your preferred approach for generating PFX files. Alternatively, you can execute the following command, specifying the desired password and path for your PFX file.
dotnet dev-certs https --export-path IdentityCertificate.pfx --password P@ssw0rdP@ssw0rd
Note: Replace P@ssw0rdP@ssw0rd with strong password and use that as IdentityCertificatePassword's value in appsettings.json
