Authenticates a user providing an access_token (JWT) for subsequent calls

POST /auth/login

The access_token must be used as a Bearer in the HTTP Authorization header of all non-public endpoints and it will have a short duration (normally 1 hour). The login endpoint also returns a refresh_token: bear in mind this just provides a basic refresh token functionality (for simplicity it does not intend to follow the OAuth 2.0 standard), this refresh token functionality it is provided mainly to prevent a user session to be abruptly interrupted while he is active if the access_token suddenly expires, providing a way to the caller so it can quickly call /auth/refresh-token endpoint and then inmmediately retry the original call with the new access_token
