How to use

Use the override config#

import SuperTokens from "supertokens-node";
import Session from "supertokens-node/recipe/session";

appInfo: {
apiDomain: "...",
appName: "...",
websiteDomain: "..."
supertokens: {
connectionURI: "...",
recipeList: [
override: {
functions: (originalImplementation) => {
return {

// here we are only overriding the function that's responsible
// for creating a new session
createNewSession: async function (input) {
// TODO: some custom logic

// or call the default behaviour as show below
return await originalImplementation.createNewSession(input);
// ...
// TODO: override more functions
  • originalImplementation is the object that contains functions that have the original implementaion for this recipe. It can be used in your functions as a way to use the SuperTokens' default behaviour.
  • In the above code snippet, we override the createNewSession function of this recipe. This can be used to (for example) modifying the session payload when a new session is created.
