Calling the getAccessTokenSilently API Returns the Same Access Token


Calling the getAccessTokenSilently API returns the same access token. This article describes how to ensure a new access token is issued.


By default, the auth0-spa.js library returns tokens from its’ cache instead of making requests to Auth0 if the tokens are still valid.


The cacheMod parameter can be set to off to overwrite this behavior to always retrieve new tokens from Auth0.

const token = await getAccessTokenSilently({cacheMode: “off”});
