InvalidTokenError for Electron App

I’m following this tutorial Securing Electron Applications with OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0.

I’m able to show the Auth0 login form https://cdn.auth0.com/blog/electron-openid-connect-oauth/the-authorization-server-login-page.png. Then it shows the user account avatar then keeps on loading indefinitely. Then I decided to stop it but after I do yarn start again it shows this error on my terminal

yarn run v1.16.0
$ electron ./

One of the comment on that article below shows the same experience and @bruno.krebs gave the answers. Still I got the same error.

Hello there, @isemaj. Welcome to our community.

Have you built the solution on your own following the steps on the article? If so, would you mind sharing it with me on a GitHub repo so I can check your code?

Thanks
Bruno Krebs

I don’t have the repo but I found out that it my mistake when I used the client id from the api because I skipped the step where I need to create an application that will represent the electron app and the client id from that newly created app is the one that I should use.

I’m glad you solved your problem, @isemaj. If you need help, don’t hesitate getting in touch. Cheers.
