Photon Custom Authentication: Returning Data to Client

Can I receive with Photon-authorization, Nickname and Data?
(https://doc.photonengine.com/en-us/pun/current/connection-and-authentication/custom-authentication)


If so, what do I need to set up for this in Playfab?

Our integration with Photon is with their authentication and webhooks (https://api.playfab.com/docs/tutorials/landing-tournaments/photon-unity). For getting information directly from Photon, like the Nickname, you'd need to use their SDK (and you can get help on using it in their forums: http://forum.photonengine.com/).

Hi @Andrew Maksimov

Thank you for choosing Photon!

You are the first customer to request the advanced features of custom authentication.
If this is a must for you, start a new forum discussion on forum.photonengine.com or send an email to developer@photonengine.com.

There may be some experimental stuff we could try.
