suspend fun authenticateOrCreateV2(session: ServiceSession, request: AccountRpc.AuthenticateOrCreateV2Request): AccountRpc.AuthenticateOrCreateV2Response

Authenticates a user against an IdentityProvider, creates a Pragma Account (if it does not exist), and returns SessionTokens used for gateway authentication.

If called without a gameShardId on the request, this will only authenticate the user with the social shard and therefore only return a social session token.
