xApp: Init Session

Version badge

Description

This Node initializes a new xApp session.

After the execution of this Node, the xApp can be accessed in two different ways:

Without entering a PIN Code

To require only a URL to access an xApp session, a Session URL can be shared. This URL is available via the xApp Session URL token.

The xApp Session URL token provides a URL, which is also accessible via input.apps.url in the input object.

With the provided link, a user can access the xApp page without requiring a PIN.

By entering a PIN Code

To allow users to access the xApp session via a PIN, share both a PIN and a PIN Page URL with the users.

This functionality is available via the xApp PIN Page URL token and the xApp: Get Session PIN Node.

The Get Session PIN Node generates a PIN, which is accessible via the xApp Session PIN token or input.apps.session.pin in the input object.

The xApp PIN Page URL token provides a URL, which is also accessible via input.apps.baseUrl in the input object.

With the provided link, a user can access the PIN page and enter their provided PIN to gain access to the xApp.
