Angular + .net Core 5 API + Auth0 : Http 401

Hello there,
I’m trying very hard to implement Auth0 in my Angular 9.1.14 application, but I can’t still figure out what the problem.

I’ve been able to add login the my my app, but I fail to implement call to my C# .Net Core 5 REST API.
I’ve flowed the tutorial many time, but still all call I made to my API end with * HTTP Error. 401*

Here more details:

Angular App config:

Hi @hugodufort,

Will you please print and decode the access token and confirm that the token audience matches the API identifier you are validating for in your .net app?

You can decode and inspect the access token with

If you are having trouble, you can DM me the token and I will take a look.

Thanks for your reply, since the application is a SPA, I can’t figure out how to get the Token.
How to get it when the Grant Type is: Implicit, Authorization Code, Refresh Token?

I might be easier just to send me a HAR of the entire transaction.

Please DM me the recorded HAR.

OK , I’ve created a Test EndPoint application with the “Test” Tab from the EndPoint config page.
And I have a token,
The header is:

  "alg": "RS256",
  "typ": "JWT",
  "kid": "lSUjob6JrpUXVpMNF0aiL"

the payload is

  "iss": "",
  "sub": "WgWiktEzuBU9jDjnLGnEHrIbjrdkaRDV@clients",
  "aud": "apikey://666fcd34*****",
  "iat": 1618344383,
  "exp": 1618430783,
  "azp": "WgWiktEzuBU9jDjnLGnEHrIbjrdkaRDV",
  "gty": "client-credentials"

Are you good with that?

We need to see the token requested by your SPA. I am specifically looking for the aud claim. It looks like you are requesting a token in your SPA with a different audience than what your API is expecting.

I sent you the HAR file in DM
