Automatic Login

The user authentication status on CONNECT can be checked by an application by issuing a "silent" authorization request.

This allows users that already have a session with CONNECT and have previously authorized the given application, to automatically log in to the application without a new login challenge.

To implement the silent auto-login, an immediate authorization request is initiated to CONNECT for all new sessions, adding prompt=none in the request parameters as in the following example:


Adding prompt=none ensures that users return to the application without seeing a CONNECT user interface. Depending on their authentication status and id_token (or code), they either log in automatically or an error is returned to the application immediately.
