Using react-relay with auth0-react

Please include the following information in your post:

  • Which SDK this is regarding: auth0-react, react, react-relay
  • SDK Version: auth0-react 1.10, auth0-spa-js 1.21, react-relay 13.x, react 11.x
  • Platform Version: Node16.x, auth0-react
  • Code Snippets/Error Messages/Supporting Details/Screenshots: We use react-relay to interface with GraphQL APIs; however, using useAuth0, getAccessTokenSilently with RelayEnvironmentProvider produces issues where I can’t login properly. How can I integrate these together? I already have the routes wrapped by Auth0Provider.

Is this a feature request or bug report? No…guidance

I didn’t see anyone talking about using react-relay with auth0, and examples I/we did find didn’t quite apply as they did routing very differently than we are.


export default TokenRelay = ({children, onTokenReceiver}) => {
    const { isAuthenticated, getAccessTokenSilently }  = useAuth0
    const [ token, setToken ] = useState("")
    useEffect( () => {
    }, [])
   return (
       <RelayEnvironmentProvider environment={onTokenReceiver(token)}>


const Routes: FC = () => (
       <SideNavigation />
          <Router primary ...>
             {/* routes here */}
             <Home path="/" />
             <NotFound default />


function MainComponent() {
    return (
            <Auth0Provider ...>
                <TokenRelay onTokenReceiver={relayDefaultEnv}>
                <AppRoutes />

This allows the page to kind of load; but the below errors are generated and the react application crashes.

If I remove the TokenRelay portion, then it loads and logs in, but crashes when I try to access a page that uses the GraphQL API via React Relay:

Uncaught Invariant Violation: useRelayEnvironment: Expected to have found a Relay environment provided by a `RelayEnvironmentProvider` component. This usually means that useRelayEnvironment was used in a component that is not a descendant of a `RelayEnvironmentProvider`. Please make sure a `RelayEnvironmentProvider` has been rendered somewhere as a parent or ancestor of your component.

Is it possible to use auth0-react with react-relay? What am I missing?
