For how long are users authenticated?


#1

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?


#2

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


#3

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


#4

Sorry, thought that would be the same?
