How to login to user accounts in your lowcode Hypi app instance

The previous post demonstrated how to register user accounts in the Hypi App instance. Now, the next step is to login to the user accounts.

To perform CRUD and other operations on the Hypi domain, the user should login to the account in the app instance. This generates a session token which is used as an Authorization key to perform the operations.

Let’s see how to login to user accounts…

  • A user may login by username or email.
  • login is the API to login using username.

login(username:String!,password:String!): AccessToken

  • loginByEmail is the API to login using email.

loginByEmail(email: String!,password: String!): AccessToken

  • Provide the credentials used while registering the user account.

Sample Query

{
    login(
        username: "hypi-user", 
        password: "[email protected]"
    ) {
        sessionToken
        sessionExpires
        errorCode
        errorMsg
    }
}
#OR
{
  loginByEmail(email: "[email protected]", password: "[email protected]") {
    sessionToken
    sessionExpires
    errorCode
    errorMsg
  }
}
#Result
{
  "data": {
    "login": {
      "sessionToken": "session-token",
      "sessionExpires": 1634889557,
      "errorCode": null,
      "errorMsg": null
    }
  }
}

Output

Query with Variables

query HypiLogin($username: String!, $password: String!) {
  login(username: $username, password: $password) {
    sessionToken
    sessionExpires
    errorCode
    errorMsg
  }
}

#Query Variables
{
  "username": "[email protected]",
  "password": "[email protected]"
}

Again, check the POSTMAN collection for the account login requests in different programming languages! Click </> and choose the programming language of your choice.
Don’t forget to insert your own Authorization key and Hypi Domain under Headers to test the results!
