IBM Mobilefirst Javascript Client-side API WL.Client.isUserAuthenticated returns true even if session is expired

mfp version
  • In login module set expirationInSeconds to 20 seconds.
  • Login and wait for 20 seconds.
  • Session expires.
  • When I try to access protected resources it responds correct (asks for authentication).
  • But..WL.Client.isUserAuthenticated("realmName") still returns true (!).

Seems that this function just returns cached boolean, and not true status.

How do I check real auth status?

When using WLResourceRequest you automatically use the new OAuth framework for authentication.

The WLClient APIs are not relevant in the OAuth flow. Instead, you should look at the WLAuthorizationManager APIs: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSHS8R_7.1.0/com.ibm.worklight.apiref.doc/html/refjavascript-client/html/WLAuthorizationManager.html
