    Hi there,

    I'm probably missing something simple, but the examples you provided show how to Add Oculus as an authentication provider and then how to obtain the necessary information from the Oculus Integration package, but nothing that shows how to actually sign in the user with the Authentication package.

    Any chance we could see a code snippet of some kind?

    As it turns out, I was indeed missing something simple.

    The Oculus platform methods for the Authentication package were added in version 2.3.0, I had to manually update my Authentication package in the manifest in order to be able to access these

    Either I'm blind, or that code sample doesn't actually show how to authenticate with Oculus, it shows you how to retrieve a users Oculus details and leaves you with a comment:

    // Authentication can be performed here.

    It's not particularly difficult after that, you just call:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. AuthenticationService.Instance.SignInWithOculusAsync
    But unless you have the most up to date Authentication package (which isn't installed by default as a dependency) then you have no idea that method even exists
