OWIN token authentication with social logins RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am after some guidance.  I have set-up my ASP.NET C# OWIN MVC application to authenticate using JWT tokens.  I used the IAppBuilder extension UseOAuthAuthorizationServer to create an endpoint for issuing tokens to users.  Everything works correctly - when a correct username and password combination is posted to this endpoint a JWT token is generated and returned.

    I now want to extend this functionality to social account logins.  I want my users to be able to authenticate using Facebook and to issue a local JWT token for them once they are successfully returned from the Facebook authentication.  I can't use the endpoint being used for local accounts because it requires a username/password combination post - which I don't have for users who have authenticated using Facebook.  So, my essential question is - how do I generate a local JWT token for users authenticated using external social logins?
