SetUserSignedIn() - what does it do?!

roAppManager got recently^ added method SetUserSignedIn(signedIn as Boolean) as Void and i don't get it, what does it do? What's the point of app telling Roku player user is signed-in or signed-out - if the app cannot ask the player back about it?

The part "If the channel is removed, then the firmware will call SetUserSignedIn(false) on the channel's behalf." seems to imply this is some kind of service Roku provides for the channel, e.g. app should be able to ask the player if user is supposed to be logged in - but there is no such function.

(^) which firmware version and up?! why nobody bothers to mark the version, if there are still fw 5 out there?

I don't have answers for your questions, but I'll note that this was added in firmware 7.1:
https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc ... 14/05/2016

A note has been added to the ifAppManager doc page about the firmware version availability.

Thank you, RokuKC.

Where is the small army of "developer evangelists" hired, when one needs one?

Re: SetUserSignedIn() - what does it do?!

So what does setUserSignedIn() really do?
