I am an early adopter of aspnetboilerplate. I learned AngularJS as part of developing aspnetboilerplate project and it all started by reading an awesome blog post Introduction to ASP.NET Boilerplate by Halil ibrahim Kalkan. Since then I always recommended using the paid aspnetzero template for all the major projects in my workplace. And I used the free aspnetboilerplate template for some of the projects including my side project, piggyvault, a family finance management app, and its APIs is built on aspnetboilerplate.
Similarly, I use Cloudflare for most of the hosted websites as a firewall-cum-CDN. Recently after hosting the aspnetboilerplate project on SmarterASP.net, I started to face a login issue where it was working fine on local (as always 😆). The traffic to the PROD app was routed via Cloudflare.
Later the troubleshooting journey ended up here.
Cloudflare strips any header that contains dots (.) from origin web server responses. For example, the origin web server header test.header:data is removed by Cloudflare’s proxy.
By default, ABP uses
Abp.TenantId header as the
TenantIdResolveKey, and Cloudflare strips it resulting in null value always. Thankfully, aspnetboilerplate provides an option to change the
TenantIdResolveKey. To change,
// Enable this line to create a multi-tenant application. Configuration.MultiTenancy.IsEnabled = PiggyvaultConsts.MultiTenancyEnabled; Configuration.MultiTenancy.TenantIdResolveKey = "Piggy-TenantId"; // your key without "."
It resolved the login issue.
