Start auth by email

post/oauth2/login/email/request

Starts authentication by the user email address and sends a confirmation code to their email address. The code lifetime is 3 minutes.

This call is used only with the Complete auth by email call.

The workflow of using this call:

  1. The application opens an authentication form so the user can enter their email address.
  2. The user enters their email address.
  3. The application sends this request to the Xsolla Login server: a. If the parameter send_link is true, after this request, you should send the Get confirmation code request to make email contain the confirmation code and link. b. If the parameter send_link is false or not passed, the email will contain the confirmation code only.
  4. The Xsolla Login server sends the email and returns the ID of the confirmation code.
  5. The application shows a field so the user can fill in the confirmation code.
  6. The user enters the received confirmation code or follows the link.
  7. The application sends the Complete auth by email request with the received ID to the Xsolla Login server.
  8. The user is considered as authorized.
