Authentification required after restarting Shiny Proxy

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to use the App recovery new feature (which looks super neat btw, thank you!) but when I make a modificaiton in my configuration.yaml, the apps still crash (error: shiny_authentification_required), I’m assuming that ShinyProxy restarted and forced the app to crash in order to authenticate. I really want to restart ShinyProxy without authenticating again. Is there a workaround? a way to check if a user is already logged, no need to require another authentication after restarting ShinyProxy.

Thank you so much in advance.


In order to stay authenticated, you should be using Redis in order to achieve session persistence.
You can find info on configuring redis here:

I noticed this isn’t mentioned on the app recovery page, I’ll make sure to update that page to include this information.
