Is there an endpoint to check if a user is logged in

(Jay Pfaffman) #1

I need a URL that will return 200 for a logged in user and 401 or 403 if the user is not logged in.

If require_login is checked, every page does a 301 to the login page.

Is this a user request, i.e. using the current users session?


Is this an admin API request using an admin API key?

Yeah. It’s me not understanding the question I’m asking.

I’m trying to do an auth_request in NGINX to tell whether the request is coming from a user that’s logged in by querying an URL to see whether it gets a 200 response or not.

It’s occurring to me that doing that is not quite as simple as I’d hoped.

You could try /session/current.json

It will return 200 if authenticated and 404 if not.

Generally .json / API requests don’t redirect.

That seems promising. I’ll keep poking at it.

Many thanks!
