Auth State

When initializing an Auth Flow with the platform an Application may include additional state in the JWT sent as the auth_state parameter. It will usually include any data submitted by the user when configuring a connection, or any other context the client wants to include with the request. This state is accessible within an auth flow.

// JWT claims in auth_state
  "iss": "sample-application",
  "aud": "the platform",
  "exp": 1617316251,
  "iat": 1617312651,
  "store_name": "fancy-store"

{auth_state:store_name} renders fancy-store

This can be useful if any of the URLs in the auth flow vary by user. For example:

// from an Integration Definition
"authorization": {
    "url_template": "http://{auth_state:store_name}",
