Changelog July 22, 2022


Customizable Session tokens, Clerk playground, and an updated Data Processing Agreement.

Customizable Session tokens

You could always generate custom JWTs with Clerk, but now you can add new claims directly to the Session token encoded in the HTTPOnly cookie.

This token is guaranteed to be up-to-date, and will impose no latency on any requests you make.

You can find this new option in your Dashboard. Navigate to:

Settings > Sessions > Customize Session Token

Clerk Playground

We've created a new "Playground" that lets you easily explore Clerk's React SDK and our APIs. We've tried to keep the examples pared down and simple, so that you can use them as a reference when building your own custom flows. Our plan is to continually add to this repository of examples as a resource to help developers get going quickly with Clerk.

See the live example, or go straight to the repo

If there's a custom flow you want to see built, let us know in our discord

Data Processing Agreement

To be in compliance with GDPR, we've updated our data processing agreement and established a formal local presence in the EU.
