Metro and ACS

Jul 26, 2012 at 9:42 AM

Are there any known issues with Metro (WinJS) applications and ACS when usign the WebAuthenticationBroker?

I can't get the sample to run correctly. Everything redirects well. ACS to Live where I can login, and then back to ACS. I even receive a response from ACS after logging in with Live, but then nothing happens. A WireShark trace indicates that a call to the backend part of the application never occurs.

Anyone experiencing the same issue? Are there any workarounds?

I would love to see an updated sample of the "ACS Windows Metro Sample" too, I am really struggling to get this working. I have been able to leverage some of the pieces from Thinktecture.IdentityModel.45 in combination with the new Windows Identity Foundation Tools to get the bootstrap token returned, but any time my app comes back with the token it is ignored and the user needs to log in again.

Any help would be appreciated, keep up the good work.
