After leaving New Universal Login open for some time first sign in ignored

Hi,

If I leave the New Universal Login open for some time, I find that when I finally submit the form the login attempt is ignored and the form is presented again for me to reenter my credentials. I suspect that this is something to do with the state value “expiring” but the user experience is less than great. Can someone please confirm if this is expect functionality?

Thanks,
Jon

Hi @JonHarvey. That is the expected behaviour. The state parameter has an expiry. Off hand I don’t remember how long or it is adjustable. The state parameter is there to help prevent CSRF attacks.
