This document explains how to setup the number of network retries allowed.
With Haventec Authenticate, when a user authenticates, a new authKey is generated and sent to the user device. It is important that this is retained on the device, as it is needed for the next time the user authenticates on that device.
But what if something goes wrong, and the device has not persisted the new authKey, yet Haventec has issued a new one?
To mitigate this situation, this feature allows the previously generated authKey to remain valid for a number of retries.
- Allowed authkey Retries: The number of times an AuthKey can be used before it is invalid. This is in case an AuthKey is rotated, which occurs whenever a new JWT is created, but the end user did not receive the new one - say due to network issues. So this keeps their old one in play.
- Enter the number of retries in the Allowed Auth Key you wish to permit.
- If you have completed configuring all the Advanced Settings click Next. The system will confirm your Advanced Setting changes have been made.
