    Hi Telerik,

    I developed my own mvc widget login to control access to my controllers by using [Authorize] attribute, ex:

    [ControllerToolboxItem(Name = "TestController", Title = "Test", SectionName = "MVC")]
    public class TestController : Controller
            public ActionResult Index()
                return View("Index", new TestViewModel());


    I also created a startup class at the root of the project :

    [assembly: OwinStartupAttribute(typeof(SitefinityWebApp.Startup))]
    namespace SitefinityWebApp
        public class Startup
            public void Configuration(IAppBuilder app)
                int? SessionDuration = 1;
                string CookieName = "COOKIECOOKIE";
                if (SessionDuration.HasValue)
                    app.UseCookieAuthentication(new CookieAuthenticationOptions
                        ExpireTimeSpan = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(SessionDuration.Value),
                        AuthenticationType = DefaultAuthenticationTypes.ApplicationCookie,
                        CookieName = CookieName
                    app.UseCookieAuthentication(new CookieAuthenticationOptions
                        AuthenticationType = DefaultAuthenticationTypes.ApplicationCookie,
                        CookieName = CookieName


    So now, i can connect through that widget and access to the view return by my controller. If i'm not connected, i have no access to that view.


    Here is the thing : When i'm connected through my widget, and then i want to connect to the back-end with my admin user (in the same browser - it is ok in 2 differents browsers), i have the error you can see in attachment.

    What i found is there is a conflict with the cookie "COOKIECOOKIE" i created because when i delete that cookie (or when it is automatically deleted when expired), i can access to the back-end.

    Do you have any idea what is happening here ?

    Thanks for your help.
