Microsoft Account authentication for Windows Store Apps using Windows Azure Mobile Services


  • I have followed all the steps listed on the azure website and also checked the samples out. But I get this error. I cannot understand what is wrong. I am a novice regarding authentication services. I even reactivated the secret key.

  • Can you give some more information on which Azure site are you referring to and how does the Authentication broker get displayed in your app?

  • Unfortunately I cannot reproduce the issue you have reported. I followed the steps as per: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/documentation/articles/mobile-services-windows-store-dotnet-get-started-users/ and added the redirect URL (the name of my website: <a href="https://<>.azure-mobile.net">https://<>.azure-mobile.net) in the "API settings" section of my Microsoft account.

    When do you see the error? When bringing up the login screen itself or does the Microsoft account sign-in page show up correctly and the error happens when you submit your username and password?

  • I'm getting the same error.  Facebook, Twitter and Google all work for me, but Microsoft does not.  In my situation, it seems like there's a problem with the redirect URL.  I've followed the documentation exactly, but still get the same error.  In the meantime, I have disabled enhanced redirection security so I can continue development.  It's the only workaround I've got thus far.
