HttpContext.GetTokenAsync("access_token") is null



I’m using the sample code from the ‘ASP.NET Core Storing Tokens’ quickstart. I can login successfully, but when I interrogate the HttpContext.GetTokenAsync(“access_token”) , it says it is null and does not exist in httpcontext. What are the steps I need to perform to get the access token to be returned in the httpcontext.


If you are using OpenIdConnect the tokens will only be saved to the context if
SaveTokens = true; in the startup

.AddOpenIdConnectAuthentication(options => {
   // other options..
    options.SaveTokens = true;


Thanks for the response. I can’t see AddOpenIdConnectAuthentication. I am using .AddOpenIdConnect(“Auth0”, options =>
// other options
SaveToken = true;
I am using the sample from the quickatart. I only added the values from my client and changed nothing from the code and it does not work. So I’m thinking I’ve not configured my client correctly.


This doc is specific regard the storage of access tokens:
Must some other config if this doesn’t work?


Thats the doc I followed. I’m assuming there’s something wrong with the config of my client.
