Blazor UI: Authentication

The application startup template is properly configured to use OpenId Connect to authenticate the user through the server side login form;

  • When the Blazor application needs to authenticate, it is redirected to the server side.
  • Users can enter username & password to login if they already have an account. If not, they can use the register form to create a new user. They can also use forgot password and other features. The server side uses IdentityServer4 to handle the authentication.
  • Finally, they are redirected back to the Blazor application to complete the login process.

This is a typical and recommended approach to implement authentication in Single-Page Applications. The client side configuration is done in the startup template, so you can change it.

See the Blazor Security document to understand and customize the authentication process.
