State Metadata node

Returns selected attributes from the shared node state as metadata.

This node sends a MetaDataCallback to retrieve shared state values, which it adds to the JSON response from the /authenticate endpoint. This example shows how a shared state attribute, mail, is returned:

"callbacks": [
    {
      "type": "MetadataCallback",
      "output": [
        {
          "name": "data",
          "value": {
            "mail": "bjensen@example.com"
          }
        }
      ]
    }
]

Use this node to display custom information that includes user attributes without having to alter the existing flow.

For example, for OTP authentication with a choice of email or SMS, use this node to return the user’s email address or phone number. You can use the attributes with an OTP Collector Decision node, and optionally, a Scripted Decision node, to customize the data for display later.
