Active client authentication

Hello,

I'm trying to use OKTA authentication from a NOT browser based application. I'm using .NET SDK for this purpose, but have a problem to call authentication API for users that are mastered by Active Directory. How it can be achieved?

Thanks,

Hi Anna,
Thank you for reaching out to Okta.
To get a better understanding can you be more specific with the problem that you're facing?

I'm trying to implement authenitcation from a WCF service. The authentication is for our corporate users, which means the passwords are not stored in OKTA org. and, once again, it's a not browser based flow.

Is this (https://developer.okta.com/quickstart/#/okta-sign-in-page/dotnet/aspnetcore)the flow that you're following ? Also how many API authentication calls youre performing and what is the error you're receiving ?
