I have Sitecore 10.1 instance in my machine. I would like to login into Sitecore using below Sitecore CLI command on the powershell window:

dotnet sitecore login --authority https://SC101identityserver.dev.local --cm https://sc101sc.dev.local/ --allow-write true

I am getting below error:

Error connecting to https://sc101identityserver.dev.local/.well-known/openid-configuration: Bad Gateway

enter image description here

My Sitecore instance is working fine and able to login into Sitecore.

Can someone help in fixing this issue?

Thanks in advance.

When I hit the below URL, it was giving HTTP Error 502.5 - Process Failure error.

https://sc101identityserver.dev.local/.well-known/openid-configuration: Bad Gateway

Later I found that license file at the identityserver website was not valid. So, I changed the license file at /sitecoreruntime/license.xml. Again I checked the above URL and this time it was giving valid JSON response.

Now I try to login into Sitecore using Sitecore CLI command and able to see login popup and console error also got fixed.
