Overview

Interactive login is to be used when the user is present to login (for example, 3rd Party Desktop Applications) and will manage any additional information required at login depending upon a customer's account (such as 2 Factor Authentication codes or National Identifiers).

The keep alive operation should be called within the 20 minute session expiry time if the user is still actively using your application. The embedded login page initially looks like this:

You should be able to detect the presence of a session token in the requests upon successful login for use by your application.
