I'm doing an integration using ArcGIS Javascript and trying to host this in a Linux environment. So I can use the proxy code done using ASP.net as it will work only on Windows IIS. 

Can someone help me of getting this authentication issue solved related to Linux? Any other option for authentication would be fine too. 

I saw some links related to token generation for authentication. If someone can brief me on what needed to be done on that is also fine.

Hi @eutech ,

The Esri Resource Proxy is not recommended since it is not being maintained and there has been no active development on it. Using the Esri Resource proxy in certain scenarios could also go against the Terms and Conditions of ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise. The best practices have been outlined here: https://github.com/Esri/resource-proxy#best-practices 

There are alternative authentication methods outlined in the ArcGIS Developer documentation:

Check out those resources and see what's best for you in your scenario. Hope this helps!
