photon server Custom Authentication

edited June 2022 in Photon Server


I can't get any callback such as :OnCustomAuthenticationFailed ,OnCustomAuthenticationResponse, it seem that photon server Custom Authentication is not work.

Please help, our project's deadline is comming soon, but i encounter this problem.

  1. I use the newest photon v1 PUN (v1.105 )and the newest photon server v5 r1 to test the Custom Authentication.

I use DemoFriends-Scene as the client, and use the photon server v5 r1 as the server.

we didn't modify any server code.

(if I use photon server v4, all is work normaly, it seems that this problem only exist in photon server v5)

2. client code:

 PhotonNetwork.AuthValues = new AuthenticationValues();

PhotonNetwork.AuthValues.AuthType = CustomAuthenticationType.Custom;

 PhotonNetwork.AuthValues.UserId = authName;

         if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(authToken))

            PhotonNetwork.AuthValues.SetAuthPostData(JsonUtility.ToJson(new AuthRequest { token = authToken }));


3. Server config (Nameserver.xml.config):

<CustomAuth Enabled="true" AllowAnonymous="false">



    <AuthProvider Name="Custom"



           secret="customauthsecret" />
