Account API


Client integration with  

The Account service allows you to authenticate and manage a user account. You can use the account service to update user information, retrieve the user sessions across different devices, and fetch the user security logs with his or her recent activity.

Register new user accounts with the Create Account, Create Magic URL session, or Create Phone session endpoint. You can authenticate the user account by using multiple sign-in methods available. Once the user is authenticated, a new session object will be created to allow the user to access his or her private data and settings.

This service also exposes an endpoint to save and read the user preferences as a key-value object. This feature is handy if you want to allow extra customization in your app. Common usage for this feature may include saving the user's preferred locale, timezone, or custom app theme.

Account API vs Users API

While the Account API operates in the scope of the current logged-in user and usually using a client-side integration, the Users API is integrated from the server-side and operates in an admin scope with access to all your project users.

Some of the Account API methods are available from the server SDK when you authenticate with JWT. This allows you to perform server-side actions on behalf of your project user.

Create Account

POST/v1/account

Use this endpoint to allow a new user to register a new account in your project. After the user registration completes successfully, you can use the /account/verfication route to start verifying the user email address. To allow the new user to login to their new account, you need to create a new account session.

Create OAuth2 Session

GET/v1/account/sessions/oauth2/{provider}

Allow the user to login to their account using the OAuth2 provider of their choice. Each OAuth2 provider should be enabled from the Appwrite console first. Use the success and failure arguments to provide a redirect URL's back to your app when login is completed.

If there is already an active session, the new session will be attached to the logged-in account. If there are no active sessions, the server will attempt to look for a user with the same email address as the email received from the OAuth2 provider and attach the new session to the existing user. If no matching user is found - the server will create a new user..

Create Magic URL session

POST/v1/account/sessions/magic-url

Sends the user an email with a secret key for creating a session. If the provided user ID has not be registered, a new user will be created. When the user clicks the link in the email, the user is redirected back to the URL you provided with the secret key and userId values attached to the URL query string. Use the query string parameters to submit a request to the PUT /account/sessions/magic-url endpoint to complete the login process. The link sent to the user's email address is valid for 1 hour. If you are on a mobile device you can leave the URL parameter empty, so that the login completion will be handled by your Appwrite instance by default.
