Login Page

The login page is responsible for establishing the user’s authentication session. This requires a user to present credentials and typically involves these steps:

  • Provide the user with a page to allow them to enter credentials locally, use an external login provider, or use some other means of authenticating.
  • Start the session by creating the authentication session cookie in your IdentityServer.
  • If the login is client initiated, redirect the user back to the client.
