Shopify App Installation Flow

I have created a shopify app, but I'm not really clear about how shopify goes about apps' installation. I mean, how do we specify which url the url is redirected when user clicks Add App on shopify store. Wonder, if we can have multiple urls, I mean one for dashboard after app is installed and one for redirect url during installation phase. Thanks in advance.

When the user clicks "Add App", they're redirected to the App Url that's configured from within the partners dash : 

All traffic will flow to your application URL, you then check to see if the user is authenticated, and show the dashboard of your app.

How do I check to see if a user is authenticated?


For example, with Azure Active Directory, you build a database of users and match each one against a handshake with Azure's API.  Is it the same with shopify?  How can I find out more?
