Troubleshooting and Streamlining User Authentication Process in Xano

The State Changers meeting primarily revolved around troubleshooting account authentication issues, focusing on integrating "Xano" and "OAuth". The problem originated from the inability to properly filter and allot access to comments for a logged-in user on Xano's interface.

Specifics included debugging "access denied" errors, reviewing API endpoint operation, exploring the nature of the OAuth process, and examining user authentication tokens. The Changers discussed how the ID token, obtained via the API request, carried information about the user that could be subsequently implemented to validate the user's identity. The meeting also highlighted how these tokens could expire over time and how this information is contained in the token itself. In an attempt to solve the problem, the focus shifted towards the dynamic generation of user data. Instead, they proposed using the account login to serve as a checkpoint. If a record wasn't found, the login would redirect the user to another page. Following that, "Get record from user" function debugging was initiated. Ultimately, their strategy involved using returned data from the API request, especially the ID token, to enhance the authentication process, including the creation of new users based on received data, with the token determining what the next step should be.
