<ThirdPartyAuth />


The ThirdPartyAuth component is used to wrap any component that requires authentication in an application.

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-auth-react";
class App extends React.Component {
render() {
return (
<Dashboard />
  • ThirdPartyAuth takes a prop called requireAuth which if set to false, will show the Dashboard component even if the user is not logged in.
  • ThirdPartyAuth also creates a "Session context" which provides the following object to all children components:
    doesSessionExist: boolean,
    userId: string,
    jwtPayload: any /*JSON object set on the backend*/
  • ThirdPartyAuth will update the session, because it uses SessionAuth underneath. Read more about session updates in SessionAuth guide.

Handle session expiry#

If you pass a function to onSessionExpired prop, it will be called whenever the session expires.

const App = () => {
return (
<MyComponent />

You will need to redirect the user to the login screen in the callback you provide to onSessionExpired.
