Shopify app doing auth all over again

Shopify Partner
32 0 4

When i install my App on my test store by clicking "Install app" everything works goes to my onboarding page and i get an access token and i store it into my database and it gets installed to my store and then it redirects the user to the app interface.

when i click on that app in the admin --> apps section the app does all of that all over again eventhough it is already installed (It creates a new access token & stores it into my database, & it goes to the onbarding page) expecting it to just take the user to the app interface because it is already installed and it doesnt need to go through the flow again (seems like shopify is not recognizing the app as being installed which is why im assuming it does the flow all over again)


Did anybody else run into this issue or can anyone maybe help me out please?
