Events: Authentication

Learn about how to create authentication events using notification API.

There are four event types around authentication:

  • credential-delete - emitted when a credential is deleted by a user
  • credential-auth - emitted when a new credential is authenticated by a user
  • credential-reauth - emitted when a credential’s authentication is refreshed by a user
  • credential-deauth - emitted when a credential has been identified as being expired and all attempts to refresh failed






The social service the credential is for. Today, these include, but are not limited to:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • RSS
serviceIdStringThe id of the account on the network.
nameStringThe name of the account on the service.
whenNumberThe time the event occurred in milliseconds since epoch.
messageStringThe message about the event happening. Typically, this is simply success in that the event completed and was registered successfully.

Example payload:

  "service": "instagram",
  "serviceId": "673abc9794",
  "name": "",
  "when": 1520987518000,
  "message": "success"
