    Umbraco Backoffice Sign in Call


    I would like to make a call to the same function that is called on clicking the backoffice sign in button. I am unsure what that would be, if anyone could let me know what I need to call or point me in the right direction please.

    Thank you in advance.

    After examining the Umbraco source code, I was able to achieve this in front end and backend code.

    In front end I created a jQuery ajax call to the following endpoint: '/umbraco/backoffice/UmbracoApi/Authentication/PostLogin'. I also passed in username and password details as JSON object.

    In back end I used the following code from a UmbracoApiController:

    private async Task<SignInStatus> LoginAsync(LoginModel loginModel)
            // Get http context
            var http = this.TryGetHttpContext();
            // Get owin context
            var owinContext = TryGetOwinContext().Result;
            // Get backoffice sign in manager
            var signInManager = TryGetOwinContext().Result.GetBackOfficeSignInManager();
            // Call sign in method
            var result = await signInManager.PasswordSignInAsync(loginModel.Username, loginModel.Password, true, true);
            return result;
