Currently I’m downgrading because it’s not easy to connect every time I open it

Hi @iaminam

Are you connecting to WP Engine? I think this might be part of the new Okta login workflow to connect but wanted to clarify.

Yes it’s okta issue. I’m also confused why they brought okta link at first I was suspicious and thought it’s hacked. I tried old version which is also breaking now

So while you’re working in the Local app it will disconnect as well? Or is it only disconnecting after you quit Local and use it again later?

Only when quit and reopen it.

Okay thank you for clarifying! Glad it’s not happening while you are in the app. I don’t think this is a bug but intended functionality with the new Okta workflow as mentioned. I will share this with the team however to see if it’s possible to make changes down the road.

But this is very annoying like every time login even if I’ve to fix a little bug and publish it. Previously I never reconnected just once I added website.
