    Hi Guys

    I'm really frustrated. I'm currently developing an MVC5 web application with the User Authentication. But I was request to Add the Office 365 User Acces.

    I did uncomment the following and add my real description accordingly

    clientId: "XXXXXX",
    clientSecret: "XXXXX"

    However when the User Logs In the Web application from the Login Page, there is the following error appearing and Breaking the process:

    OpenIdConnect Breaks

    Please anyone may help me ASAP as it's Urgent.

    Thank you

    Hi McElie ,

    To use ASP.NET Ideitity with Azure AD authentication , please refer to below steps :

    1. Install Microsoft.Owin.Security.OpenIdConnect library in your application via NuGet .
    2. Config Azure AD authentication using openid connect owin in Startup.cs :
     public void ConfigureAuth(IAppBuilder app)
                // Configure the db context, user manager and signin manager to use a single instance per request
                // Enable the application to use a cookie to store information for the signed in user
                // and to use a cookie to temporarily store information about a user logging in with a third party login provider
                // Configure the sign in cookie
                app.UseCookieAuthentication(new CookieAuthenticationOptions
                    AuthenticationType = DefaultAuthenticationTypes.ApplicationCookie,
                    LoginPath = new PathString("/Account/Login"),
                    Provider = new CookieAuthenticationProvider
                        // Enables the application to validate the security stamp when the user logs in.
                        // This is a security feature which is used when you change a password or add an external login to your account.  
                        OnValidateIdentity = SecurityStampValidator.OnValidateIdentity<ApplicationUserManager, ApplicationUser>(
                            validateInterval: TimeSpan.FromMinutes(30),
                            regenerateIdentity: (manager, user) => user.GenerateUserIdentityAsync(manager))
                // Enables the application to temporarily store user information when they are verifying the second factor in the two-factor authentication process.
                app.UseTwoFactorSignInCookie(DefaultAuthenticationTypes.TwoFactorCookie, TimeSpan.FromMinutes(5));
                // Enables the application to remember the second login verification factor such as phone or email.
                // Once you check this option, your second step of verification during the login process will be remembered on the device where you logged in from.
                // This is similar to the RememberMe option when you log in.
                // Uncomment the following lines to enable logging in with third party login providers
                //    clientId: "",
                //    clientSecret: "");
                //   consumerKey: "",
                //   consumerSecret: "");
                //   appId: "",
                //   appSecret: "");
                //app.UseGoogleAuthentication(new GoogleOAuth2AuthenticationOptions()
                //    ClientId = "",
                //    ClientSecret = ""
           new OpenIdConnectAuthenticationOptions
               ClientId = "YourClientID",
               Authority = "https://login.microsoftonline.com/yourdomain.onmicrosoft.com",
               RedirectUri= "http://localhost:52693/"

    Then when clicking "Login" button in web application , you can choose the  identity provide :

    Hi Nan Yu,

    I'm Excited to read you, However, my application just can't stop Realoading at the OpenIdConnect Login, just after the user fills up is details.

    I have Run a Diagnostic. And I have found out that it's break from here:

    string authority = String.Format(CultureInfo.InvariantCulture, aadInstance, tenant);

    user Startup.Auth.cs Class

    Then by the Next Run, It's just runs without Breaks but this time it's just reload couless times without hand.

    The Web browser it's stack here:


    How would I stop the reload process and get to the Home page after Log in the Azure AD authentication details?

    Very Disturb and frustrate.

    Please reply  ASAP or should I Escalate the Request to the High Level Urgent?! 

    The company user's need to login and use the system, but the O365 login is not working.

    Please Help ASAP

    Hi McElie,

    I haven't face your problem, are you using ASP.Net Identity and have you customize the identity system ? Have you set correct tenant/app id/redirect url of your AAD app in MVC application ?

    Best Regards,
