Hi @timmi4sa , thanks for your comment. I'm sorry you had this experience with the Microsoft Identity platform. The whole point of the new MSAL libraries and, in pariticular, Microsoft.Identity.Web is to hide most of the complexities and enable developers to quickly get off the ground when it comes to authenticating and authorizing users. However, the individual libraries that are needed to interact with the OAuth and OIDC flows are still there if you have more advanced needs and need to customize the process. You don't need to if you don't want/have to but everything's still there.
Let us know if you have specific feedback that you would like to share with us and we'll make sure it get's passed to our engineering teams. thx
