Current behavior

I had Squidex installed on my machine last year. I am now revisiting this fir a potential project but am unable to login. I have seen other forum post son it being a password issue but I used a password generation tool so it looks quite secure. If I go into MongoDB, I can see the admin user gets created. There does not seem to be anything in the logs apart from Showing login: User is not authenticated. I do not get any errors such as incorrect password or email address. It just posts and then resets the email and password fields. I can’t see any error in developer tools.

Any ideas how to troubleshoot this? This is IIS running on Windows 10.

Any help gratefully appreciated



Expected behavior

Minimal reproduction of the problem


  • [ ] Self hosted with docker
  • [ X] Self hosted with IIS
  • [ ] Self hosted with other version
  • [ ] Cloud version



  • [ X] Chrome (desktop)
  • [ ] Chrome (Android)
  • [ ] Chrome (iOS)
  • [ ] Firefox
  • [ ] Safari (desktop)
  • [ ] Safari (iOS)
  • [ ] IE
  • [ ] Edge


It is very likely an issue with https. Chrome has introduced an update a while ago that makes https a must in Squidex.
