Need help implementing Azure in Ionic


I’m trying to implement cordova-plugin-ms-azure-mobile-apps in my ionic 3 app. I’m following Microsoft’s article which describes how to setup azure in an Ionic 2 app. Hopefully it works in Ionic 3. The article says add the plugin (ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-ms-azure-mobile-apps) and to include the following code:

declare var WindowsAzure: any;
var client = new WindowsAzure.MobileServiceClient("");

So I did the following but for my Ionic 3 app:

declare var WindowsAzure: any;
export class LoginHelper {
    private client: object = new WindowsAzure.MobileServiceClient("");
    constructor() { }
    login() {
        var connType =;
        this.client.loginWithOptions('google', { parameters: { access_type: 'offline' } })
           .then(function (token) {

However, as anticipated, the client is not a WindowsAzure object and it doesn’t contain loginWithOptions. Where did I go wrong?



Have you found a solution to this?


No, I’m working with Microsoft support and will share whatever solution is found.
