Asp.net vNext Cookie Authentication


Our website needs to authenticate against a third party webservice and create a cookie. We don't need to store the membership information. I have the following code in Startup.cs

app.UseCookieAuthentication(options => { options.AuthenticationScheme = CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationScheme; options.LoginPath = new PathString("/User/Login"); options.CookieName = "GEMSNCID"; options.ExpireTimeSpan = new System.TimeSpan(1, 0, 0); });

and the login method is

var claims = new[] { new Claim(ClaimTypes.Name, model.UserName), new Claim(ClaimTypes.Country, "USA") }; var identity = new ClaimsIdentity(claims, CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationScheme); ClaimsPrincipal principal = new ClaimsPrincipal(identity); Context.Response.SignIn(CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationScheme, principal); return RedirectToAction("Index", "Home");

This is not working. Can someone please help.


I think something change on the new beta 4 version. I will try this code is working on my my sample application

var claims = new[] { new Claim(ClaimTypes.Name, model.UserName), new Claim(ClaimTypes.Country, "USA") }; var user = this.User as ClaimsPrincipal; var identity = user.Identities.Where(x => x.AuthenticationType == CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationScheme).FirstOrDefault(); if (identity == null) { identity = new ClaimsIdentity(claims.ToArray(), CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationScheme); user.AddIdentity(identity); } else identity.AddClaims(claims); if (this.Context.Response.HttpContext.User.Claims.Count() > 1) this.Context.Response.SignIn(CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationScheme, new ClaimsPrincipal(identity));
