Token Authentication - Cookie question

Go to solution Solved by ginerjm,

Recommended Posts



I am wanting to create a login for a portal I have created and want to use access tokens.


These tokens expire after 60 minutes when they need to refresh (refresh token will also be sent to the client).


How do I achieve this, when the authentication request succeeds (e.g. login with username and password) do I set a client side cookie that has the access_token and refresh_token values along with a cookie expiry?

You simply create a cookie FROM THE SERVER in the script that authenticates the access. Then wherever you need to check for a proper signon, in each script you simply check for the existence of that cookie. You can also store (perhaps) a value or two in the cookie if you need to know something about the user. DO NOT STORE any sensitive info in the cookie
