JWT with forms authentication

  • JWT with forms authentication
  • I'm using Sitefinity's default membership provider with forms authentication. I want to start developing microservices but need to authenticate these requests -- I need both the username and roles.

    I don't want to pass usernames/passwords each time using the Sitefinity dlls inside the microservices, kind of defeats the purpose of having small services if I have to bundle Sitefnity. I want my microservices to oblivious to Sitefinity.

    I've read that JWT (JSON Web Tokens) seem to be the way to go. Can that be done with Sitefinity's forms authentication?


  • I use JWT on ServiceStack with custom auth attributes on our services, works well...not with formsauth though, but would it be much different?
