ASP.NET OAuth Single Sign-On (SSO) module gives the ability to enable OAuth Single Sign-On for your ASP.NET applications. Using Single Sign-On you can use only one password to access your ASP.NET application and services. Our module is compatible with all the OAuth compliant Identity providers. Here we will go through a step-by-step guide to configure Single Sign-On (SSO) between ASP.NET and AWS Cognito considering AWS Cognito as OAuth provider.
Download And Extract Package
- Download miniOrange ASP.NET OAuth 2.0 Module.
- For Setting up the connector, extract the asp-net-oauth-sso-module.zip, you will find a DLL file miniorange-oauth-sso.dll, a configuration file oauthsso.config and a integration.md file which contain the steps for adding the module into your application.
Step 1: Add the connector in your application
- Add miniorange-oauth-sso.dll in bin folder (where your other DLL files exists) for your application.
- Register miniorangeoauthsso module in your application according to the provided steps in the integration.md file.
- Add the provided configuration file oauthsso.config in the root directory for your application.
- After integration open browser and browse the connector dashboard with URL below:
- If it pop up the registration page or login page, you have successfully added the miniOrange oauth sso connector for your application.
- Register or Login for configuring the connector.
Step 2: Setup Amazon Cognito as OAuth Provider
Step 3: Configure miniOrange ASP.NET OAuth Client
- After configuring your OAuth Provider, it will provide you with Client ID, Client Secret, Authorize Endpoint, Access Token Endpoint and Get User Info Endpoint. Configure these values under respective fields.
- Fill all the required details and click on Save Configuration.
Step 3: Test Configuration
- After saving configuration, click on the Test Configuration button to verify if you have configured correctly.
- On successful configuration, you will get Attributes Name and Attribute Values on Test Configuration window. The below screenshot shows a successful result.
Step 4: Attribute Mapping
- Map Attribute Names provided by your OAuth Server with your ASP.NET application Attributes given under Attribute Mapping Section and click on Save Attribute Mapping.
- Note: All the mapped attributes will be stored in the session so that you can access them in your application.
Step 5: Integration Code
- You can find the integration code in Integration Code tab in the connector. Just copy-paste that code snippet wherever you want to access the user attributes.
Step 6: Add following link in your application for Single Sign-On (SSO)
- Use the following URL as a link in your application from where you want to perform SSO:
- For example you can use it as:
<a href="http://base-url/?ssoaction=login”>Log in</a>"
You can configure the ASP.NET SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On (SSO) module with any Identity Provider such as ADFS, Azure AD, Bitium, Centrify, G Suite, JBoss Keycloak, Okta, OneLogin, Salesforce, AWS Cognito, OpenAM, Oracle, PingFederate, PingOne, RSA SecureID, Shibboleth-2, Shibboleth-3, SimpleSAML, WSO2 or even with your own custom identity provider.
