checkSession() doesn't include user details

I’m using checkSession() to pull a user’s access token on page refresh for my SPA, but the authResult doesn’t include the user’s email, username, etc.

Is it really recommended that I do something like open up an auth0 management API object and query the user profile? That seems like it would quickly hit API call limits.

What am I doing wrong or what is the recommend way of doing this?

Solution: You need to include the scopes.

auth0.checkSession(
      {
        scope: "openid profile email"
      },

That is correct! Glad you were able to eventually make it work!
