I am on Umbraco 8.
Instead of using the regular membership provider for frontend Umbraco users, I want frontend users to login through an external provider via OAuth 2.0
I have read about ASP.NET Identity. I have found this sample solution from Microsoft on how to use the WebAuthenticationBroker class to connect top OAuth providers. I also found Shazwazza's UmbracoIdentity.
However, I am not clear about how all this plugs together. Is there an example, or a video, for how to use an external OAuth login provider with Umbraco? I can code it only once I understand the concept in detail.
Thank you in advance for your attention to my question.
I've recently used UmbracoIdentity on a project and it's fairly straight forward to set up, just Nuget install it:
Once it's installed it will create a sample controller and that you can learn from and alter.
thank you for your suggestion. I have been playing with UmbracoIdentity now for the last week and I learned a lot. I got the basics of the OAuth 2.0 login with Umbraco working and I am happy.
I still have a few details not sorted out though. One is how to gain access to the Umbraco Member inside of an Owin event handler. I have posted a separate question for this here.
I am happy to read that manage things to work. You are working on something that I need at this time :)
Can you can please confirm that you managed to get OAuth authentication working for Umbraco members in the front-end? Is it possible to share the code or concept?
My need is to communicate with a custom OAuth provider (none of the big ones) and to allow access to a protected section of the website.
Thank you in advance.
