Hello RStudio Community I am fairly new to Shiny and R technologies (well, web development in general). With that said, I am developing a Shiny App application which will offer paid subscription models. I plan to use shinyapps.io's implementation of this system as an example.
Example of shinyapps.io's billing implementation.
I have read about Stripe and how it can help me with this implementation. Furthermore, I am using Auth0 for my user authentication. All of this is running of a EC2 server using Shiny Server.
I went ahead and did the setup process for each service and technology, no issues here. The problem comes when I try to integrate said technologies with one another.
The first issue here has to do with Auth0, I have to know which registered user bought a subscription of mine. To do this, I have read that I can use an ID or Access Token; but I cannot find a way to access said token in a shiny app.
The second issue has to do with Stripe, I need a way to identify the user on Stripe. I was planning to use metadata (which both Auth0 and Stripe support) but in order to do that I need to solve the Auth0 issue first.
