Authentication

Log in#

To log in to a user, you can call the authenticate mutation:

note

Whilst the refreshToken is available in the mutation response, this is mainly intended for use in environments where cookies aren't available (i.e. mobile applications). An HttpOnly refresh token cookie is automatically sent with all authentication mutation responses.

mutation Authenticate {
authenticate(
email: "james@testingthings.com"
password: "testing123"
) {
jwt
jwtExpiresAt
refreshToken
refreshTokenExpiresAt
user {
id
fullName
}
}
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"authenticate": {
"jwt": "eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpc3MiOiJDcmFmdENNUyIsImlhdCI6MTYwNzIyMjg5MywiZXhwIjoxNjA3MjI0NjkzLCJzdWIiOi...",
"jwtExpiresAt": 1607224693,
"refreshToken": "eu5l-FkvTaWEzIt38QFR8ETx5PIS706P",
"refreshTokenExpiresAt": 1614998893,
"user": {
"id": "21",
"fullName": "James Edmonston"
}
}
}
}

Register#

To register a user, you can call the register mutation:

note

If you have Permission Type set to Multiple Schemas in your plugin settings, you will have a register mutation for each user group that has registrations enabled (e.g. registerUser and registerBusiness).

mutation Register {
register(
email: "james@testingthings.com"
password: "testing123"
firstName: "James"
lastName: "Edmonston"
customField: "A value"
) {
jwt
jwtExpiresAt
refreshToken
refreshTokenExpiresAt
user {
id
fullName
... on User {
customField
}
}
}
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"register": {
"jwt": "eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpc3MiOiJDcmFmdENNUyIsImlhdCI6MTYwNzIyMjg5MywiZXhwIjoxNjA3MjI0NjkzLCJzdWIiO...",
"jwtExpiresAt": 1607224693,
"refreshToken": "eu5l-FkvTaWEzIt38QFR8ETx5PIS706P",
"refreshTokenExpiresAt": 1614998893,
"user": {
"id": "21",
"fullName": "James Edmonston",
"customField": "A value"
}
}
}
}

Refresh JWT#

To refresh a user's JWT, you can call the refreshToken mutation:

note

Whilst this mutation accepts a refreshToken argument, browser requests will automatically use the refresh token cookie. The argument is mainly intended for use in mobile applications.

note

Refresh tokens are consumed when generating a new JWT. A new refresh token is included in the mutation response, and also sent as an HttpOnly cookie.

mutation RefreshToken {
refreshToken(refreshToken: "Bc7xqt6ri5vFEzIEXRo-Z0CxgG0RqF_L") {
jwt
jwtExpiresAt
refreshToken
refreshTokenExpiresAt
}
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"refreshToken": {
"jwt": "eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJpc3MiOiJDcmFmdENNUyIsImlhdCI6MTYwNzIyMjg5MywiZXhwIjoxNjA3MjI0NjkzLCJzdWIiO...",
"jwtExpiresAt": 1607224693,
"refreshToken": "eu5l-FkvTaWEzIt38QFR8ETx5PIS706P",
"refreshTokenExpiresAt": 1614998893,
}
}
}

Log out#

Log out of current device#

To delete the current token, you can call the deleteCurrentToken mutation:

mutation DeleteCurrentToken {
deleteCurrentToken
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"deleteCurrentToken": true
}
}

Log out of all devices#

To delete all tokens associated with a user, you can call the deleteAllTokens mutation:

mutation DeleteAllTokens {
deleteAllTokens
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"deleteAllTokens": true
}
}

Activate User#

To activate a user following an activation email, you first need to grab the code and id query parameters from the URL in the email.

Once you've grabbed these, you can call the activateUser mutation:

mutation ActivateUser {
activateUser(
code: "aY6MHG5NhKvA5tzrxKXuAvOLKca3fjJQ"
id: "b50acbd9-c905-477a-a3f5-d0972a5a4356"
)
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"activateUser": "Successfully activated user"
}
}

Resend Activation Email#

To resend an activation email to a user, you can call the resendActivation mutation:

mutation ResendActivation {
resendActivation(email: "james@testingthings.com")
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"resendActivation": "You will receive an email if it matches an account in our system"
}
}

Forgotten Password#

To send a password reset email to a user, you can call the forgottenPassword mutation:

mutation ForgottenPassword {
forgottenPassword(email: "james@testingthings.com")
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"forgottenPassword": "You will receive an email if it matches an account in our system"
}
}

Set Password#

To set a user's password following a password reset email, you first need to grab the code and id query parameters from the URL in the email.

Once you've grabbed these, you can call the setPassword mutation:

mutation SetPassword {
setPassword(
password: "testing1234"
code: "aY6MHG5NhKvA5tzrxKXuAvOLKca3fjJQ"
id: "b50acbd9-c905-477a-a3f5-d0972a5a4356"
)
}
// returns
{
"data": {
"setPassword": "Successfully saved password"
}
}
