Interface AuthenticationGetSessionOptions

Options to be used when getting an AuthenticationSession from an AuthenticationProvider.


  • AuthenticationGetSessionOptions



clearSessionPreference?: boolean

Whether the existing user session preference should be cleared.

For authentication providers that support being signed into multiple accounts at once, the user will be prompted to select an account to use when getSession is called. This preference is remembered until getSession is called with this flag.

Defaults to false.

createIfNone?: boolean

Whether login should be performed if there is no matching session.

If true, a modal dialog will be shown asking the user to sign in. If false, a numbered badge will be shown on the accounts activity bar icon. An entry for the extension will be added under the menu to sign in. This allows quietly prompting the user to sign in.

Defaults to false.

forceNewSession?: boolean | { detail: string }

Whether we should attempt to reauthenticate even if there is already a session available.

If true, a modal dialog will be shown asking the user to sign in again. This is mostly used for scenarios where the token needs to be re minted because it has lost some authorization.

Defaults to false.

silent?: boolean

Whether we should show the indication to sign in in the Accounts menu.

If false, the user will be shown a badge on the Accounts menu with an option to sign in for the extension. If true, no indication will be shown.

Defaults to false.

Note: you cannot use this option with any other options that prompt the user like createIfNone.
