Custom login page

I'm using a custom login page. Where there's a button that will take me to other authentication page that's not from refine. After saving the user info in localStorage. How can I continue to use the user to authProvider, accessControlProvider

Hi @tads8799. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To use the user information stored in localStorage with authProvider and accessControlProvider, you need to implement the check method in your authProvider. This method is used by refine to check if the user is authenticated or not. Here's an example of how you can implement the check method:
const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
// ...other methods
check: async () => {
const user = localStorage.getItem("user");
if (user) {
return {
authenticated: true,
};
} else {
return {
authenticated: false,
error: {
message: "Check failed",
name: "User not found",
},
redirectTo: "/login",
logout: true,
};
}
},
// ...other methods
};
const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
// ...other methods
check: async () => {
const user = localStorage.getItem("user");
if (user) {
return {
authenticated: true,
};
} else {
return {
authenticated: false,
error: {
message: "Check failed",
name: "User not found",
},
redirectTo: "/login",
logout: true,
};
}
},
// ...other methods
};
In this example, the check method looks for the user information in localStorage. If it finds the user, it returns an object with authenticated: true. If it doesn't find the user, it returns an object with authenticated: false and some error information. You can use a similar approach for the accessControlProvider. The can method of the accessControlProvider is used to check if the user has the necessary permissions to access a resource. You can implement this method to check the user's permissions based on the information stored in localStorage. For more information, you can refer to the following documentation pages: - Auth Provider (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/auth-provider/) - Access Control Provider (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/access-control-provider/) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

So I cant login, logout and other from authProvider then? Or how should I implement/remove them if I don't need it? @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- In refine, the authProvider is used to handle authentication and authorization processes. It includes several methods such as login, logout, check, checkError, getPermissions, and getUserIdentity. However, if you don't need some of these methods, you can provide a minimal implementation for them. For example, if you don't need the login and logout methods because you're handling these processes elsewhere, you can implement them like this:
const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
login: async () => {
return {
success: true,
};
},
logout: async () => {
return {
success: true,
};
},
// ...other methods
};
const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
login: async () => {
return {
success: true,
};
},
logout: async () => {
return {
success: true,
};
},
// ...other methods
};
In this example, the login and logout methods always return a resolved promise with success: true. This means that refine will consider the login and logout operations as always successful. However, keep in mind that some parts of refine might rely on these methods. For example, the useLogout hook calls the logout method from the authProvider. If you're using such features, you need to make sure that your authProvider implementation is compatible with them. For more information, you can refer to the authProvider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/core/providers/auth-provider). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
