Change OWIN Storage to Redis RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there,

    I am developing a web service application with .NET Framework 4.5 / Web API 2 and I am using OWIN for authentication and authorization.

    So, for this application we need a load balancer solution then we set up that as you know after that users' tokens are not working properly. Because if a user take token from server A then can't use it on server B.

    Because of it, I need use Redis with Redis every application's OWIN will save authentication to redis

    I used https://github.com/ziyasal/Owin.Security.RedisTokenProviders this package, but it does not help. I guess I am missing a point.

    Thank you.


    Here is the my Configuration Method on Startup.cs

    public void Configuration(IAppBuilder appBuilder)
                HttpConfiguration httpConfiguration = new HttpConfiguration();
                httpConfiguration.DependencyResolver = new NinjectResolver(NinjectWebCommon.CreateKernel());

    and my Server Option in same class

    OAuthAuthorizationServerOptions oAuthAuthorizationServerOptions = new OAuthAuthorizationServerOptions()
                    TokenEndpointPath = new Microsoft.Owin.PathString("/signin"),
                    AccessTokenExpireTimeSpan = TimeSpan.FromHours(1),
                    AllowInsecureHttp = true,
                    Provider = new SimpleAuthorizationServerProvider(),
                    RefreshTokenProvider = new RedisRefreshTokenProvider(new ProviderConfiguration
                        ConnectionString = "",
                        Db = 0,
                        ExpiresUtc = DateTime.UtcNow.AddMinutes(5),
                        AbortOnConnectFail = true
