For example, I have a user service handling user login


In another service, which is mounted as sub-app, I want to verify the user, the path is


The problem is, how can I set the userEndpoint of the hook in /api/riddle like this

        authHooks.populateUser({userEndpoint: '../user'}),

Probably in my case I should use middleware and jwt to protect the sub-apps.
For example I can mount a middleware using jwt at /private-api and mount the apps requiring authentication as its sub apps.

That's why I opened an issue at feathers-hooks. I wonder if its possible to mount these provided hooks as middlewares to authenticate non-service app

@wuyuanyi135 Ya again, you could do what you are hoping to do when this issue is closed feathersjs/feathers#216.

Currently you can pass a custom userEndpoint to the populateUser hook but that won't work for sub apps.
