dbAuth Cookie Expiration Questions

Hey there!

I’ve got a RedwoodJS application built using dbAuth and I have a couple questions that I can’t find anything about in the docs.

  1. Is there a way to update the cookie’s expiration whenever a user makes a request, so that it only expires after the user has been inactive for some amount of time?
  2. Right now, whenever the cookie is expired, it just throws this error in the API and returns a 500: Error: Exception in getAuthenticationContext: The Authorization header is not valid. Typically I would expect this to return a 401 or similar so that I could catch that in the web side and log out the user, but I don’t see a way to change this behavior. Is there any advice for this??
