Redirect too many times

I am trying to deploy the Node js example code on Zeit Now, everything works fine if run locally, but it gives me ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS when I deployed.

Has anyone experienced this issue before? Can anyone shed some light on this? Thank you!

@lancevalour Welcome to auth0 community.

Without knowing much details it is hard to say what could be going wrong. Could you post HAR file when this error happens? Remember to remove any confidential info from the HAR such as username/passwords

Thank you posting the HAR file. Unfortunately it doesn’t help much. Can you provide a reproducible sample? Is it standard Auth0 nodejs quickstart sample or something you built? also are you using auth0 developer keys by any chance for social connections?

I am using the standard nodejs quickstart sample code from here:

I am using email/password connection

Looks like when /callback route is called, it redirects back to /login route, and then auth0 /authorize route, and /callback again causing an infinite loop

Solved this issue.

Need to add app.set("trust proxy", 1);

Thanks a lot for sharing it with the rest of community!

I had the same issue. In addition to setting the trust proxy I had to set sess.proxy to true. I also implemented the mongoStore (while having a “real session store” is good, it didn’t solve this problem) – this was a painful 48 hours.

The following issues were referenced along my way:

// config express-session
var sess = {
    secret: config.session_secret,
    cookie: {},
    resave: false,
    saveUninitialized: true,
    store: new MongoStore({ mongooseConnection: mongoose.connection }),

if (app.get('env') === 'production') { = true
    sess.proxy = true
    app.set('trust proxy', 1)

I also added some headers to my nginx config, not sure if they were required in the end, but its working now:

listen 443 ssl;
location / {
    proxy_pass http://localhost:3020;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host:$server_port;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
