OAuth via Auth0 with a JWT

My application's UI authenticates with Auth0 and sends a JWT with each request to my server in the Authorization header.

How do I achieve this behavior with swagger ui? I am hosting my Swagger UI using the swagger-ui-express node.js module. 

I am able to get Swagger UI to authenticate with Auth0 using the following security definition:

securityDefinitions:
auth0:
type: oauth2
flow: authorizationCode
authorizationUrl: https://XXX.auth0.com/authorize
tokenUrl: https://XXX.auth0.com/oauth/token
scopes: {}

And swagger even passes a value in the Authorization (bearer) header of my requests.. But, the bearer token does not appear to be a JWT, which my server is expecting.

Not sure if this helps!

How do I test the service if no Swagger UI?
Alternatives SoapUI or Postman or write code to test, I can think of where you can generate JWT token and pass it as header parameter.

I thought you wanted to find an alternative way to test the service. Isn't it?

No, I'm not looking for an alternative way. I'm looking for the right way to do this *using* Swagger.

I'd love to see a reply to this.

This did not end up helping me. It seems this is a fundamental flaw with swagger-ui and I just need to wait for them to support more oauth methods.
