Troubleshooting User Authentication Token Creation and Function Stacks
During the meeting, State Changers discussed a variety of software development issues, mainly around user authentication system. Problems with token generation in an app were addressed with specific troubleshooting steps advised, including examining the code for token creation and assessing records from users. The issue lay in the field value being zero due to the identification (ID) being hard-coded as such. The solution suggested was to replace the hard-coded ID with the variable user ID instead, and to publish the changes. Key terms mentioned include function stack and publishing, while specific technologies referred to include debugging tools and possibly the use of some sort of database, suggested by the term "get record". There was also reference made to Redis, a database storage technology. The meeting ended with the intention to keep working on the issue and to circle back with more updates.
