Problem authenticating with OpenIdConnect RRS feed

    Hi guys,

    I'm very new to OpenIdConnect. I was using Live SDK application to as one of the external authentication methods but unfortunately it's deprecating.

    I've set up app registration at Azure for authentication but apparently it won't authenticate.

    After the user enters a Microsoft username and password, the user is directed back to the website https://iluvrun.com/Account/RegisterExternalLogin?providerName=OpenIdConnect&returnUrl=. When I checked Context.GetOwinContect().Authentication.GetExternalLoginIndo() at RegisterExternalLogin.cs, it returns null.

    I also checked the user's apps and services given access, the app is listed there. So it did authenticate and was given access.

    Following the guide, this is what I have at Startup.Auth.cs

    public void ConfigureAuth(IAppBuilder app)

            new OpenIdConnectAuthenticationOptions
                ClientId = "[client_id]",
                Authority = "https://login.microsoftonline.com/[tenant_id]/v2.0",
                RedirectUri = "https://iluvrun.com/signin-oidc",
                PostLogoutRedirectUri = "https://iluvrun.com",
                Scope = OpenIdConnectScope.OpenIdProfile,
                ResponseType = "id_token",
                TokenValidationParameters = new TokenValidationParameters()
                TokenValidationParameters = new TokenValidationParameters()
                    ValidateIssuer = false
                    Notifications = new OpenIdConnectAuthenticationNotifications
                    AuthenticationFailed = OnAuthenticationFailed

    private Task OnAuthenticationFailed(AuthenticationFailedNotification<OpenIdConnectMessage, OpenIdConnectAuthenticationOptions> context)
        context.Response.Redirect("/?errormessage=" + context.Exception.Message);
        return Task.FromResult(0);

    Hi suencien,

    Accroding to your description,as far as I think,I suggest you need to enable the application to use a cookie to store information for the signed in user and use a cookie to temporarily store information about a user logging in with a third party login provider.

    More details,you could refer to below article:


    Best regards,
