For how long are users authenticated?


Using the auth0-js API, I can call authorize for a user to get initial authorization and then call checkSession periodically to get an updated JWT.

What controls the amount of time that the user is “authorized”, such that I can call checkSession? Is there any kind of expiry of this state? If so, can that expiry time be controlled?


Check the settings of your Application, at the bottom there is a setting “JWT Expiration”.


That’s the expiry time of a JWT, is it not?


Sorry, thought that would be the same?
