Startup class OIDC get URLs from CMS


I am trying to implement OIDC (Startup class) in our CMS solution.

How can I get the URLs to redirectUri (login action method), error and postlogoutRedirectUri (homepage) without hardcoding / getting from web.config ?

 public class Startup
        private readonly string _clientId = "xxxxxx";
        private readonly string _redirectUri = "http://localhost:8080/OIDClogin";
        private readonly string _postLogoutRedirectUri = "http://localhost:8080/";
        private readonly string _authority = "xxxxx";
        private readonly string _clientSecret = "xxxxx";

        public void Configuration(IAppBuilder app)
            // For more information on how to configure your application, visit

        public void ConfigureAuth(IAppBuilder app)
            //app.UseCookieAuthentication(new CookieAuthenticationOptions
            //    AuthenticationType = DefaultAuthenticationTypes.ApplicationCookie,
            //    LoginPath = new PathString("/Home/Signin"),
            //    CookieSameSite = SameSiteMode.None,

            _ = app.UseOpenIdConnectAuthentication(new OpenIdConnectAuthenticationOptions
                ClientId = _clientId,
                ClientSecret = _clientSecret,
                Authority = _authority,
                RedirectUri = _redirectUri,
                PostLogoutRedirectUri = _postLogoutRedirectUri,
                ResponseType = OpenIdConnectResponseType.CodeIdToken,

Why don't you want to put it in the web.config? The standard approach is to keep the Uri paths the same for each site and change the domain depending on the context. Here you can see an example of how to do that (see the HandleMultiSiteReturnUrl method):

You could use a similar approach and use ContentReference.StartPage.GetPublicUrl() for example to get the current homepage URL.
