OpenID authentication (Thinktecture)

  • OpenID authentication (Thinktecture)
  • Hello,

    I have an Thinktecture STS and I am trying to connect a Sitefinity site to this server.
    Is this possible? Can I do this with Owin middleware (like with a WebApi or MVC website)?


  • Hi Jens,

    I have answered your question in the support thread you posted. Here is my answer for the community to benefit from:
    "Sitefinity supports Sign On with third party applications. Abundant information on this can be found in this and this blog posts.

    Regarding your Thinktecture server, here is a GitHub example I found that you may find useful"

  • Hello Ivan,

    Thanks for your reaction. I already had a working Thinktecture Identityserver. The
    only thing that I need is a tutorial to connect to the Thinktecture Identityserver, I can't
    seem to get that form the blogs you send me. For starters I don't have the "Add STS reference" or "Identity and Access" in my VS2013. Those posts are from 2013 and the link you send is Thinktecture identityserver v2 and I am on version v3, so I can't seem to find the information to setup Sitefinity to use the STS on these blog posts, maybe it's outdated?


  • Did you come up with a solution Jens? I am attempting to do the same thing and am struggling putting the pieces together. Thanks.
  • Hi,

    Could somebody find a way to do this?

  • I have a solution that works. I've written a module that can be installed into SF and will hookup to IdentityServer3. If you're interested, email me at solo812 /@/
