    Owin account linking - broken profile view?

    Setting up a brand new umbraco site running 8.11.1.

    Installing UmbracoCms.IdentityExtensions.Google and confiure in according to documentation.

    The login with google button appears and the login actually works. But in the backoffice, the profile shown when clicking the user icon top right is broken.

    This means no other accounts can be linked, since the linkbutton, logout etc is not there.

    I also tried with adsf instead of google and same result. Anyone know whats going on?

    enter image description here

    Did you ever figure this out? Having the same issue.

    I figured it out!

    Checking the console I found:

    TypeError: Cannot read property 'AllowManualLinking' of undefined

    Which led me to this issue.

    I amended ~/App_Start/UmbracoGoogleAuthExtensions.cs

    public static void ConfigureBackOfficeGoogleAuth(this IAppBuilder app, string clientId, string clientSecret,
            string caption = "Google", string style = "btn-google", string icon = "fa-google")
            var googleOptions = new GoogleOAuth2AuthenticationOptions
                ClientId = clientId,
                ClientSecret = clientSecret, 
                //In order to allow using different google providers on the front-end vs the back office,
                // these settings are very important to make them distinguished from one another.
                SignInAsAuthenticationType = Constants.Security.BackOfficeExternalAuthenticationType,
                //  By default this is '/signin-google', you will need to change that default value in your
                //  Google developer settings for your web-app in the "REDIRECT URIS" setting
                CallbackPath = new PathString("/umbraco-google-signin")
            googleOptions.ForUmbracoBackOffice(style, icon);
            googleOptions.Caption = caption;
            var autoLinkOptions = new ExternalSignInAutoLinkOptions(true);  // autoLinkExternalAccount = true
            autoLinkOptions.AllowManualLinking = true;
            googleOptions.SetBackOfficeExternalLoginProviderOptions(new BackOfficeExternalLoginProviderOptions
                AutoRedirectLoginToExternalProvider = false,
                DenyLocalLogin = false, // if ANY external provider has this property set, local login will be disabled
                AutoLinkOptions = autoLinkOptions,

    and it all works as exepcted.
