Authenticate an user against your app's AppGyver Hosted Auth or AppGyver Cloud Auth backend.

If the authentication is succesful, the local user session is set and the first output is triggered.

If the authentication fails, the second output is triggered.

To use this flow, your app must have its authentication type set as AppGyver Hosted Auth or AppGyver Cloud Auth.
