Release Notes Arcana Auth (Mainnet)
Release Date: February 10th, 2023
This release of the Arcana Auth product consists of the following components:
- Arcana Auth SDK v1.0.1
- Arcana Developer Dashboard
- Arcana wallet UI
There are no changes in the Arcana Auth features or product usage in this release.
In the previous release, v1.0.0 of the Arcana Auth SDK, the default setting for the
network parameter (optional) in the
AuthProvider constructor was 'mainnet'.
By default, when a developer registers an application using the Arcana Developer Dashboard, only the 'Testnet' configuration profile is created. The Client ID available on the dashboard corresponds to Arcana Testnet. There is no 'Mainnet' configuration profile available by default unless the developer explicitly creates it.
This was creating an initialization mismatch issue in cases where developers chose to not create a 'Mainnet' configuration profile using the Arcana Developer Dashboard but simply continue to deploy the app on Arcana Testnet.
In this use case, the default 'Testnet' configuration settings specified via the Arcana Developer Dashboardwere not compatible with the default
network setting in the Arcana Auth SDK, which pointed to 'mainnet'. As a result, some of the new developers were facing issues while integrating with the Arcana Auth SDK v1.0.0 as they tried to deploy the app on the Arcana Testnet. The configured social providers did not show up in the Auth UI when they created the
AuthProvider and specified the Arcana Testnet Client ID without any
network setting. This caused mismatched default `network`` value, 'mainnet', to take effect for the Arcana Auth SDK usage.
As a workaround, the developer had to override the optional parameter
network as 'testnet' to ensure the correct functioning of the authentication feature when only the 'Testnet' configuration profile was available for a registered application.
The latest release v1.0.1 of the Arcana Auth SDK handles this use case by setting the default value of the optional
network parameter in the
AuthProvider constructor as 'testnet'.
