Okta API - ASP.NET WebForms?

The .NET API Examples given on the website are both ASP.NET MVC projects.


Can the Okta API be used within an ASP.NET WebForms project and if so, is there an example?

Yes! Okta can work with ASP .NET Web Forms. You will need to add OWIN dependencies to your Web Forms project. We recently published a blog post about this: https://developer.okta.com/blog/2018/08/29/secure-webforms-with-openidconnect-okta

The blog post hasn’t been updated with the new Okta.AspNet package we just published, which makes adding it to your OWIN pipeline even easier. See these instructions for that: https://developer.okta.com/quickstart/#/okta-sign-in-page/dotnet/aspnet4

Hi! the example works great for a single webpage. I can’t seem to find an example where I can authenticate webforms contained in an entire folder (without using MVC). Thanks for your help.
