I have setup a Typescript react app using the tutorial of auth0-react package.
My AuthenticationGuard class correctly redirects the user to login.
However, when they login:
- If they refresh the page the browser is redirected to auth0 /authorize then back to my app without me having configured that anywhere
- If I call
getAccessTokenSilently I get the same redirect as above and I can see that token request fails with
Is there some documentation on why I am getting these redirects and ‘login_required’
Welcome to the Auth0 Community!
Is there any more info in the login required error?
When the applications does a
getTokenSilently, it uses an existing session to renew the access token. The error indicates that the existing session doesn’t exist, is expired, etc.
This FAQ could be helpful: Why is authentication lost after refreshing my single page application?
It seems to work in Chrome only; in Firefox and Brave I am getting to my SPA, it either prompts user to login or makes a call to
authorize and it gets id_token and access_token. But when in my code I call
getAccessTokenSilently I am simply getting
I tried working over SSL (I am still developing locally, so my app is at http://localhost:3000) but that made no difference.
Actually it seems that I have worked it out.
In Firefox and Brave this only works if I provide the audience to the
Auth0Provider. I can’t use adaptive audience when calling
getAccessTokenSilently it simply doesn’t work.
This is pretty odd and what are we supposed to do if we have multiple APIs we want to call?
Have you tried using refresh token rotation? Here’s another thread with a similar problem statement.
Additionally, localhost can sometime’s cause a “consent required” error you may see.
@dan.woda I’d love to
use refresh token rotation if I found anywhere how to enable it. I checked the toggle forever ago but it doesn’t seem to have any effect. From the requests in the browser I can see that it’s the token is returned in response to
The doc for it is right here: Configure Refresh Token Rotation
Please let me know if you have any questions.
