loginWithRedirect generates query params suggesting auth0 module can't be found


I am facing an issue that seems to have come out of nowhere. For reference, I am using the auth 0 spa SDK in a react application.

When loginWithRedirect() is called and redirects the user, the URL it generates includes query params that state: “access denied”, “cannot find module auth0”

Here are the raw query parameters:

This seemingly is not an error in my application code. And I do not see any network calls failing, though I did notice that the call to /authorize is returning a 302 redirect which seems strange (I can’t recall if this is what it always returned).

Any ideas? Is there a way to confirm if this issue is coming from my application? I have already tried deleting all of node_modules and installing fresh packages.

As added context, here is the log event in our tenant’s application:

Discovered the issue. A teammate had turned on a rule that was not working correctly and that is what was generating the error. I found this by looking at the tenant’s logs and noticed all logins since a rule change had failed.

Not sure how to mark this as resolved or closed but we’ve fixed the issue.
