This sample won't work if I use certificate as secret for my AAD app

See original GitHub issue

Please provide us with the following information:

This issue is for a: (mark with an x)

- [ ] bug report -> please search issues before submitting
- [x] feature request
- [ ] documentation issue or request
- [ ] regression (a behavior that used to work and stopped in a new release)

Minimal steps to reproduce

In appsetting.json file, instead of putting AAD app secret for “ClientSecret”, I put the Certificate Name. The sample won’t run because in the Startup.cs file, when the app first runs: services.AddAuthentication(AzureADDefaults.JwtBearerAuthenticationScheme) .AddAzureADBearer(options => Configuration.Bind(“AzureAd”, options));

.AddAzureADBearer() is taking AzureADOptions as input, and this class doesn’t have properties for certificate name. Thus, this sample is not supporting certificate as a secret for AAD app.

AzureADOptions class is from the package: Microsoft.AspNetCore.Authentication.AzureAD.UI.AzureADOptions

Any log messages given by the failure

Expected/desired behavior

Do I miss anything here? Or this sample will support certificate in the future?

OS and Version?

Windows 10.


Mention any other details that might be useful

Please let me know if I am missing anything here, maybe this sample does support the certificate as secret.

Thanks! We’ll be in touch soon.

@shiweiwei114 : I’d like to come to this before the end of April. Meanwhile you can have a loot at this variation of the daemon sample: this will be similar.
