Hi @silentnyte. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- In Refine, the authentication process is handled by the auth provider. The auth provider should have a login method that sets the user as authenticated and stores the necessary information (e.g., token) in the local storage. Here's an example of how an auth provider is set up in Refine with Auth0:
const App = () => {
const { isLoading, isAuthenticated, user, logout, getIdTokenClaims } = useAuth0();

if (isLoading) {
return <span>loading...</span>;
}

const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
login: async () => {
return {
success: true,
};
},
logout: async () => {
logout({ returnTo: window.location.origin });
return {
success: true,
};
},
onError: async (error) => {
console.error(error);
return { error };
},
check: async () => {
try {
const token = await getIdTokenClaims();
if (token) {
axios.defaults.headers.common = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token.__raw}`,
};
return {
authenticated: true,
};
} else {
return {
authenticated: false,
error: {
message: "Check failed",
name: "Token not found",
},
redirectTo: "/login",
logout: true,
};
}
} catch (error: any) {
return {
authenticated: false,
error: new Error(error),
redirectTo: "/login",
logout: true,
};
}

return {
authenticated: false,
error: {
message: "Check failed",
name: "Token not found",
},
const App = () => {
const { isLoading, isAuthenticated, user, logout, getIdTokenClaims } = useAuth0();

if (isLoading) {
return <span>loading...</span>;
}

const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
login: async () => {
return {
success: true,
};
},
logout: async () => {
logout({ returnTo: window.location.origin });
return {
success: true,
};
},
onError: async (error) => {
console.error(error);
return { error };
},
check: async () => {
try {
const token = await getIdTokenClaims();
if (token) {
axios.defaults.headers.common = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token.__raw}`,
};
return {
authenticated: true,
};
} else {
return {
authenticated: false,
error: {
message: "Check failed",
name: "Token not found",
},
redirectTo: "/login",
logout: true,
};
}
} catch (error: any) {
return {
authenticated: false,
error: new Error(error),
redirectTo: "/login",
logout: true,
};
}

return {
authenticated: false,
error: {
message: "Check failed",
name: "Token not found",
},
In your case, you should modify your handlelogin function to use the login method from your authProvider. This way, refine will handle the authentication state and redirection for you. If you want to avoid storing tokens in local storage for security reasons, you can use cookies. Here are some docs with NextJS and remix that can guide you on how to do this: - NextJS (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/routers/nextjs/#server-side) - Remix (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/routers/remix/#server-side-authentication-with-self-service-cookie) Remember to restart your developer server for the changes to take effect. Press Ctrl+C on your keyboard to close the server and run npm run dev to start it again. Sources: - Discord support thread: Persistent 'Loading...'
