Hi @sly0074. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. The provided extracts do not contain specific information on how to implement an auto logout or session expiration after a period of user inactivity in Refine. However, Refine does provide robust authentication and authorization services, including a pre-built AuthProvider component and out-of-the-box support for Auth0. You might be able to leverage these features to implement your desired functionality. For more detailed information, I recommend checking out the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/) and the Advanced Tutorials (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials) section, which includes a tutorial on Auth0 integration. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Ok. @kapa.ai I mean, Create a function that logs out user after 10 secs using setTimeout

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- You can use the useLogout hook provided by Refine to create a function that logs out a user after a certain period of time. Here's an example of how you can do this:
import { useEffect } from 'react';
import { useLogout } from "@refinedev/core";

const AutoLogout = () => {
const { mutate: logout } = useLogout();

useEffect(() => {
const timer = setTimeout(() => {
logout();
}, 10000); // 10 seconds

return () => clearTimeout(timer); // This will clear Timeout when component unmount (like componentWillUnmount)
}, []);

return null;
};
import { useEffect } from 'react';
import { useLogout } from "@refinedev/core";

const AutoLogout = () => {
const { mutate: logout } = useLogout();

useEffect(() => {
const timer = setTimeout(() => {
logout();
}, 10000); // 10 seconds

return () => clearTimeout(timer); // This will clear Timeout when component unmount (like componentWillUnmount)
}, []);

return null;
};
In this example, the useEffect hook is used to set a timeout that calls the logout function after 10 seconds. The logout function is obtained from the useLogout hook. The return statement inside the useEffect hook clears the timeout when the component unmounts. Please note that this is a simple example and might not cover all real-world scenarios. For example, you might want to reset the timer whenever user activity is detected. For more information, refer to the useLogout documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/authentication/hooks/use-logout/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai 👍 so, how to reset the timer whenever user activity is detected?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To reset the timer whenever user activity is detected, you can listen for certain events such as mouse movements, key presses, or clicks. When these events occur, you can clear the existing timeout and start a new one. Here's an example:
import { useEffect, useRef } from 'react';
import { useLogout } from "@refinedev/core";

const AutoLogout = () => {
const { mutate: logout } = useLogout();
const timerRef = useRef(null);

const resetTimer = () => {
if (timerRef.current) {
clearTimeout(timerRef.current);
}

timerRef.current = setTimeout(() => {
logout();
}, 10000); // 10 seconds
};

useEffect(() => {
// Start the timer when the component mounts
resetTimer();

// Setup event listeners
window.addEventListener('mousemove', resetTimer);
window.addEventListener('keydown', resetTimer);
window.addEventListener('click', resetTimer);

return () => {
// Clear the timer when the component unmounts
if (timerRef.current) {
clearTimeout(timerRef.current);
}

// Cleanup event listeners
window.removeEventListener('mousemove', resetTimer);
window.removeEventListener('keydown', resetTimer);
window.removeEventListener('click', resetTimer);
};
}, []);

return null;
};
import { useEffect, useRef } from 'react';
import { useLogout } from "@refinedev/core";

const AutoLogout = () => {
const { mutate: logout } = useLogout();
const timerRef = useRef(null);

const resetTimer = () => {
if (timerRef.current) {
clearTimeout(timerRef.current);
}

timerRef.current = setTimeout(() => {
logout();
}, 10000); // 10 seconds
};

useEffect(() => {
// Start the timer when the component mounts
resetTimer();

// Setup event listeners
window.addEventListener('mousemove', resetTimer);
window.addEventListener('keydown', resetTimer);
window.addEventListener('click', resetTimer);

return () => {
// Clear the timer when the component unmounts
if (timerRef.current) {
clearTimeout(timerRef.current);
}

// Cleanup event listeners
window.removeEventListener('mousemove', resetTimer);
window.removeEventListener('keydown', resetTimer);
window.removeEventListener('click', resetTimer);
};
}, []);

return null;
};
In this example, useRef is used to keep a reference to the timer. The resetTimer function clears the existing timer and starts a new one. This function is called whenever a 'mousemove', 'keydown', or 'click' event occurs. The event listeners are cleaned up when the component unmounts. Please note that this is a simple example and might not cover all real-world scenarios. You might need to adjust this code to fit your specific needs. For more information, refer to the useLogout documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/authentication/hooks/use-logout/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai so, I put this code inside the authProvider file ?
kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- No, the AutoLogout component should not be placed inside the authProvider file. The authProvider file is used to define the authentication logic of your application, such as login, logout, and register methods. The AutoLogout component is a separate React component that you can use in your application wherever you want the auto-logout functionality to apply. For example, you could include it in your main App component or a specific page component. Here's an example of how you might use it in your App component:
import React from 'react';
import { Admin } from '@refinedev/core';
import AutoLogout from './AutoLogout'; // assuming you've defined AutoLogout in a separate file

const App = () => {
return (
<Admin authProvider={authProvider} dataProvider={dataProvider}>
<AutoLogout />
{/* rest of your app */}
</Admin>
);
};

export default App;
import React from 'react';
import { Admin } from '@refinedev/core';
import AutoLogout from './AutoLogout'; // assuming you've defined AutoLogout in a separate file

const App = () => {
return (
<Admin authProvider={authProvider} dataProvider={dataProvider}>
<AutoLogout />
{/* rest of your app */}
</Admin>
);
};

export default App;
In this example, the AutoLogout component is included as a child of the Admin component, so the auto-logout functionality will apply throughout your application. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
