I would like to ask you again about the User Authentication Pass.

I'm using Hockey App SDK. (Unity-Android v5.0.0)

On Hockey App Unity-Android, When authentication type is set to "Hockey App User",
User authentication views can be skipped by pressing the Home button and then back to the app.

Is there a way to prevent this issue?

    Hockey App Android SDK(v5.0.3) does not have this issue.

    Hey Chanuk,

    we're able to repro the issue for Unity and Android as well. The issue is that for Unity apps, they have launchMode==singleTask enabled.
    For authentication to work, you need to call LoginManager.verifyLogin(this, getIntent()); in onResume instead of in onCreate().

    Our documentation is lacking there. I'm adding the info right now. Sorry for the lack of documentation there.

    Thanks for alerting us to the issue and for using HockeyApp in the first place. You're awesome!


    PS: let me know if this worked!
