MVC website redirecting to logout page immediately after logging in
Over the past couple days I have been converting the authentication and authorization method on an existing MVC website to use Auth0, an OpenID provider. During the process of converting the website’s login and logout routines I ran into an issue where no matter what the website would redirect to the logout page immediately after hitting the login route. After much trial and error I finally pinpointed the problem.
In my project’s
web.config I had the following code:
<authentication mode="Forms"> <forms loginUrl="~/Auth/Logout" timeout="2880" /> </authentication>
I changed this to
mode="None" and the login page now works flawlessly.
