The login action is trying to redirect the user to your Identity Provider’s login, and failing to do so because your project isn’t configured to use an Identity Provider.

You need to set an Identity Provider for the login action to work. However, after rereading the thread, I’m uncertain what exactly you are trying to do.
Which of the following are you trying to do
- Apply actual authentication, as in have the user log in as an authorized account
- Call a popup that lets users type in some password/secret string, and then validate what was typed, all without changing the authenticated user.
Of the above two options, 1 is a bit simpler, but does require you to create and manage your users in an Identity Provider (which could simply be Ignition’s Identity Provider). Option 2 requires a bit of extra work and scripting, but is very possible. Personally, I’d suggest option 1.
