Get appSession token in React app from NodeJS backend


I am using Auth0 in a NodeJS based backend application where in an API endpoint, I have the following check:

if (!req.oidc.user) {
    res.status(401).json({ message: "User is not logged in." });

In the React frontend, I need to make an authenticated request to that API endpoint. I need the appSession token for that to pass as a cookie in my Axios request from frontend.

It is supposed to be onClick event for POST’ing data in a particular user’s profile, but for that I need the token in the frontend.

Help would be appreciated.

Hi @ritik,

It sounds like you should be using an Access Token for this request. Here’s an example of how to get it and send it in your React app:

And here’s an example of consuming it in an Express API (you don’t necessarily have to use Express, just makes it easier):
