I downloaded and ran auth0-angular-samples/01-Login All login/logout and reload scenarios worked as advertised.
In particular, if logged in and looking at localhost:3000/profile, and I do a reload in the browser, I am automatically logged back in and returned to the same place.
I wanted to set up the compiled angular client to run in localhost/login-demo so that it was not running in the root directory of my web server, which means building it with the --base-href option. But before doing that I had to change the auth-service.ts code. First, in order for the code to know the base-href, I injected the LocationStrategy as follows
private locationStrategy: LocationStrategy
and then in places where a redirect_uri was configured, I changed
I built the application with (I’m using bash on windows, so this works)
ng build --prod --base-href //login-demo\\
and finally deployed to the /login-demo directory on my web server.
In the browser if I go to localhost/login-demo. The app comes up properly. I can log in, navigate to the profile and log out all fine. When not logged in, I can navigate straight to localhost/login-demo/profile and I will, as expected, be redirected to the login page and when login completes I will be in the right place. So, this is all good.
All good until, very specifically, I try to re-load a page when already logged in. In this specific scenario I get a 400 status error on the call
Stranger still, after 60 seconds, I get routed to /localhost/login-demo which comes up fine, without me logged in. If I then click the login button, I get the same 400 status error and the client screen is locked.
Most strange is that 60 seconds after that, without me having logged in, I am returned to the the site, logged in!
