restore user token

Hi all,

we are currently testing desaster recovery of our enviroment. We have a full backup of kvstore, apps and passwd for the searchhead instance.

We are using local technical users using tokens to authenticate and edit kvstores using rest api.  In the backup we found system/JsonWebTokensV1/JsonWebTokensV10.json and restored that. Now we see tokens in the gui, but getting 500 errors when trying to log in using the tokens. The json structure of the kvstore backup only seems to hold meta information about the token, like description and id. 

But where are the token actually are stored? What file information have to be recovered on a complete new instance?

Thanks for your help in advance,

Andreas
