Destroy session Auth0 through back express

Hello!!! folloing this Example Express + Vue js

I’m trying to implement in my back one service that redirect the user to default page if the user is invalid(email) or if the users is blocked, so in my back I added this function:

export const saveSession = async (req, res, next) => {
  try { 
    const { email, username } = req.body;
    const UserUnauthorized = await authenticationService.validateUser(email);

    //check if user is blocked
    //if UserUnauthorized == true, the user is blocked
    //if UserUnauthorized == null, the user cannot access the system
    if(  UserUnauthorized || UserUnauthorized === null  ){ 
      //if not blocked, then save session

      req.session.user = { username , email };
      res.status(200).send("Data Saved");
  } catch (error) {

currently don’t work, so I would like your help, How can I destroy the auth0 session and redirect to a default page???

Hi @Gerarca,

From the example you shared, the user wouldn’t be ‘logged in’ in the backend server. This API is simply authenticating tokens and returning errors/resources to the front end.

You could return an error and handle it/logout in the front end.

Otherwise, look in to OIDC Back-Channel Logout.

Thanks @dan.woda, It just raised a doubt in me.

I quote

I’m trying to implement auth0, I’m creating a decoupled system, I mean, I have my back(express js) running on localhost:3000 and the front(vue js) running on localhost:4040, so, I just want use the loggin of Auth0, check if the email exist on my database.

it’s possible? with auth0


You can extract the user’s email from the token and check if they exist.

thanks @dan.woda !!!
