5. Session verification / Building your APIs

For this guide, we will assume that we want an API /user GET which returns the current session information.

1) Create a new file user.js#

An example of this is here.

2) Call the supertokens.init function#

Remember that whenever we want to use any functions from the supertokens-node lib, we have to call the supertokens.init function at the top of that serverless function file.

import supertokens from "supertokens-node";import { getBackendConfig } from "./config";

3) Use session verification with your handler#

We use the verifySession() to verify a session.

import supertokens from "supertokens-node";import { getBackendConfig } from "../../config/supertokensConfig";import { verifySession } from "supertokens-node/recipe/session/framework/awsLambda";import { SessionEvent } from "supertokens-node/framework/awsLambda";import middy from "@middy/core";import cors from "@middy/http-cors";
const handler = async (event: SessionEvent) => {    return {        body: JSON.stringify({            sessionHandle: event.session!.getHandle(),            userId: event.session!.getUserId(),            accessTokenPayload: event.session!.getAccessTokenPayload()        })    }}
module.exports.handler = middy(verifySession(handler)).use(cors({    origin: getBackendConfig().appInfo.websiteDomain,    credentials: true,    headers: ["Content-Type", ...supertokens.getAllCORSHeaders()].join(", "),    methods: "OPTIONS,POST,GET,PUT,DELETE"})).onError(request => {    throw request.error;});

4) Configure API Gateway#
