Cannot update user session after set new meta appdata values

I´m using Next.js for the client side, auth0 to handle authentication and Django Rest Framework for the backend. Following the guide Manage Metadata Using the Management API , I achieved to set new metadata values (I have checked it from the Dashboard). As it is spectated, if the user refresh its profile page (pages/profile.js), the old session metadata is rendered.

So my question is, how can I update user session after the metadata values has been set?

I have tried to use updateSession from session/update-session | @auth0/nextjs-auth0 I also have tried javascript - nextjs-auth0: update user session (without logging out/in) after updating user_metadata - Stack Overflow , but checkSession() is not defined so I got lost there.


   async function handleAddToFavourite() {
      if (selected) {
         const data = await axios.patch("api/updateUserSession",)
         // Update the user session for the client side
         checkSession() //this function is not defined


async function handler(req, res) {

  const session = await getSession(req, res);

  if (!session || session === undefined || session === null) {
    return res.status(401).end();

  const id = session?.user?.sub;
  const { accessToken } = session;

  const currentUserManagementClient = new ManagementClient({
    token: accessToken,
    domain: auth0_domain.replace('https://', ''),
    scope: process.env.AUTH0_SCOPE,

  const user = await currentUserManagementClient.updateUserMetadata({ id }, req.body);
  await updateSession(req, res, { ...session, user }); // Add this to update the session

  return res.status(200).json(user);

export default withApiAuthRequired(handler);


const afterRefetch = (req, res, session) => {
     const newSession = getSession(req, res)
     if (newSession) {
          return newSession as Promise<Session>
     return session

export default handleAuth({
  async profile(req, res) {
    try {
      await handleProfile(req, res, {
        refetch: true,
    } catch (error: any) {
      res.status(error.status || 500).end(error.message);

Experiencing the same problem here almost verbatim, nothing I seem to do will change the response of getSession, except log out and in again.

Using the beta next-auth0 package.
