Auth0js - checkSession call Limit




We currently implementing Silent Authentication on our Web App (Single App - React).

The documentation is very clear about that. The right way seems to be using the method checkSession() for having a new valid access Token.

However, it also seems that there is a limit between two calls for this method, actually 15 minutes.

Does it means that :

  • if the token life time is less than 15 minutes, can we block the access to the API for everyone ?
  • if someone create a loop on this method can he block the access to the API for everyone ?

Thanks for answers !


:wave: @clement I am not sure I understand your questions fully - are you looking to restrict how often you call the checkSession method?


Sorry if it was not clear :sweat_smile:

Actually I want to know if there is a restriction of call with checkSession by default.

If yes, how many ?
