React Auth Workflow

npm (scoped)

The React Auth Workflow package provides a consistent authentication and registration experience across Eaton web applications using React.

This includes pre-built implementations of the screens for Login, Forgot Password, Contact Information, Self-Registration, Registration By Invitation, and a dialog for Change Password.

Integrating the user interface into your application is as easy as providing the API calls for the various authentication and registration actions performed by the user. The AuthNavigationContainer automatically handles the presentation of the non-secure (pre-authorization) and secure (custom application) portions of a mobile application.

To use the example project as a starting point, read our Sample Project Integration instructions.

Usage (Security State)

After setup, you are now able to access various security actions and state from within your application. Importing useSecurityActions and useSecurityState allows you use these hooks as follows:

import {useSecurityActions, useSecurityState } from '@brightlayer-ui/react-auth-workflow';

const securityActions = useSecurityActions();
const securityState = useSecurityState();

The securityActions allows you to access actions related to user authentication and de-authentication. You can call securityActions.onUserNotAuthenticated(); to un-authenticate (i.e., log user out) from the application.

The securityState allows you to access state related to security, such as the currently authenticated user's email (securityState.email).

More information about React Auth Workflow's exported objects can found in the API documentation.


This library uses React Router for routing. It includes a <BrowserRouter> wrapping the entire application, so in your application, you may skip providing a Router and just render <Route>s.

The following is a list of the screens and their available query strings which a deep link may launch to. Some screens take optional query string parameters:

Screen Description Default URL Query String Params
Login the login screen '/login'
Forgot Password the forgot password screen '/forgot-password'
Reset Password the reset password screen '/reset-password' code, email
Invite Registration the first screen of the invite-based registration flow '/register/invite' code, email
Self Registration the first screen of the self-registration flow '/register/create-account' code, email
Support the contact/support screen '/support'

Testing Deep Links

  • Open the sample URL in your browser localhost:3000/register/invite?code=8k27jshInvite234Code

Note that the base routes for each screen can be customized via a prop on the <AuthNavigationContainer>.


More information about React Auth Workflow's exported objects and functions can found in the API documentation.
