And then redirect back to that original page after login?

I pass that data via the cache or session.

$c->cache->set( $key, {
    orig_url =3D> $url,
    message =3D> 'Auhorization is required',

$c->res->redirect( $c->uri_for( '/login', { info =3D> $key } ) );

Catalyst docs show an example using auto.  BTW - shouldn't the redirect be
an absolute-URI?

           sub auto : Private {
               my ( $self, $c ) =3D @_;
               if ( !$c->user_exists ) { # Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication
                   $c->res->redirect( '/login' ); # require login
                   return 0; # abort request and go immediately to end()
               return 1; # success; carry on to next action

RFC3986 has:
absolute-URI =3D scheme ":" hier-part [ "?" query ]

And 2616:
Location =3D "Location" ":" absoluteURI
