“Unable to issue redirect for OAuth 2.0 transaction” using a database connection (but Social Provider works)

SPA using VueJS. The social login/signup (via Google) works, but the database signup fails.

This is a test on localhost. The user is created, but this error is generated and the generic “Auth0 something went wrong” page is displayed.

Hey @matthewmcneely, Welcome to the Auth0 Community!

This error indicates most likely indicates some issue in the redirect_uri in the initial /authorize issued
by your application. The Authorization server failed to issue a redirect on that URL. Will you be able to check that on your side?

Please let me know if this helps.


I’m having a similar issue, except my login was working about a day ago. Nothing with regards to login has changed so I am a little confused whats up (maybe a service outage?)

Can you reproduce that now?

Yup. Here is my Auth.js

export default class Auth {
constructor(history) {
this.history = history;
this.userProfile = null;
this.auth0 = new auth0.WebAuth({
domain: process.env.REACT_APP_AUTH0_DOMAIN,
//audience: process.env.REACT_APP_AUTH0_AUDIENCE,
clientID: process.env.REACT_APP_AUTH0_CLIENT_ID,
redirectUri: process.env.REACT_APP_AUTH0_CALLBACK_URL,
responseType: “token id_token”,
scope: “openid profile email”

login = () => {

handleAuthentication = () => {
this.auth0.parseHash((err, authResult) => {
if (authResult && authResult.accessToken && authResult.idToken) {
} else if (err) {
alert(Error: ${err.error}. Check the console for further details.);

As soon as i try to login i get a error on your Auth0 page with the failed to redirect.

So we have been doing more testing and it seems like it works on incognito but not normally.

Edit: No longer working on incognito too

Got it solved. It was a broken callback url. However I am unsure why G Suite login worked - seems like an application safety issue if not fixed.

Glad you have eventually figured it out!
