HttpClient static with new

By : Lawrence Kemp

hope this fix your issue I'm not entirely sure where you were reading that pointed you towards your current implementation, especially since you are saying multiple sources gave you this idea.
My assumption is that you misread these sources as showing you a normal consturctor, instead of a static one?
code :
class ClientClass 
    private static readonly HttpClient client;
    static ClientClass() 
        client = new HttpClient();

Implement Static HttpClient in Web App

By : Armaan Sabharwal

I wish this helpful for you Your problem is due to async void. As noted in my intro to async on ASP.NET article:
code :
public static class SchedulerHttpClient
  ... // Same as above, but making MainAsync private.
  public static readonly Lazy<Task> Initialize = new Lazy<Task>(() => MainAsync());
public async Task<ActionResult> Index()
  await SchedulerHttpClient.Initialize.Value.ConfigureAwait(false);
    await MakeARMRequests().ConfigureAwait(false);
  catch (Exception e)

  return View();
public static class SchedulerHttpClient
  private static Lazy<Task<HttpClient>> _Client = new Lazy<Task<HttpClient>>(async () =>
    var client = new HttpClient();
    await MainAsync(client).ConfigureAwait(false);
    return client;
  public static Task<HttpClient> ClientTask => _Client.Value;

  private static async Task MainAsync(HttpClient client) { ... }
  private static async Task<string> AcquireTokenBySPN(HttpClient client, string tenantId, string clientId, string clientSecret) { ... }
  private static async Task<dynamic> HttpPost(HttpClient client, string tenantId, string payload) { ... }

Canceling an async call on a static HttpClient

By : carlos_godfather

Hope this helps Each SendAsync call is totally independent from each other, canceling the token for one request does not cancel other outstanding requests.
Your assumption that because HttpClientHandler is shared for all requests that means all requests get canceled is incorrect. If you look in to the decompiled source of HttpClientHandler you will see
code :
protected internal override Task<HttpResponseMessage> SendAsync(HttpRequestMessage request, CancellationToken cancellationToken)
  if (request == null)
    throw new ArgumentNullException(nameof (request), SR.net_http_handler_norequest);
  if (Logging.On)
    Logging.Enter(Logging.Http, (object) this, nameof (SendAsync), (object) request);
  TaskCompletionSource<HttpResponseMessage> completionSource = new TaskCompletionSource<HttpResponseMessage>();
  HttpClientHandler.RequestState state = new HttpClientHandler.RequestState();
  state.tcs = completionSource;
  state.cancellationToken = cancellationToken;
  state.requestMessage = request;
    HttpWebRequest prepareWebRequest = this.CreateAndPrepareWebRequest(request);
    state.webRequest = prepareWebRequest;
    cancellationToken.Register(HttpClientHandler.onCancel, (object) prepareWebRequest);
    if (ExecutionContext.IsFlowSuppressed())
      IWebProxy webProxy = (IWebProxy) null;
      if (this.useProxy)
        webProxy = this.proxy ?? WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy;
      if (this.UseDefaultCredentials || this.Credentials != null || webProxy != null && webProxy.Credentials != null)
    Task.Factory.StartNew(this.startRequest, (object) state);
  catch (Exception ex)
    this.HandleAsyncException(state, ex);
  if (Logging.On)
    Logging.Exit(Logging.Http, (object) this, nameof (SendAsync), (object) completionSource.Task);
  return completionSource.Task;

Refresh Token using Static HttpClient

By : S Duv
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
like below fixes the issue update: added the SemaphoreSlim to "lock" the refresh transaction
disclaimer: not tested, might need some tweaking
code :
public class MyHttpMessageHandler : HttpMessageHandler
    private static SemaphoreSlim sem = new SemaphoreSlim(1);

    protected override async Task<HttpResponseMessage> SendAsync(HttpRequestMessage request, CancellationToken cancellationToken)
    var response = await base.SendAsync(request, cancellationToken);

    //test for 403 and actual bearer token in initial request
    if (response.StatusCode == HttpStatusCode.Unauthorized &&
        request.Headers.Where(c => c.Key == "Authorization")
                .Select(c => c.Value)
                .Any(c => c.Any(p => p.StartsWith("Bearer"))))

            //going to request refresh token: enter or start wait
            await sem.WaitAsync();

            //some typical stuff
            var pairs = new List<KeyValuePair<string, string>>
                new KeyValuePair<string, string>("grant_type", "refresh_token"),
                new KeyValuePair<string, string>("refresh_token", yourRefreshToken),
                new KeyValuePair<string, string>("client_id", yourApplicationId),

            //retry do to token request
            using ( var refreshResponse = await base.SendAsync(
                new HttpRequestMessage(HttpMethod.Post, 
                   new Uri(new Uri(Host), "Token")) 
                      Content = new FormUrlEncodedContent(pairs) 
                   }, cancellationToken))
                var rawResponse = await refreshResponse.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
                var x = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<RefreshToken>(rawResponse);

                //new tokens here!

                //to be sure
                request.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Bearer " + x.access_token);

                //headers are set, so release:

                //retry actual request with new tokens
                response = await base.SendAsync(request, cancellationToken);


        return response;
public async Task<int> RegisterAsync(Model model)
    var response = await YourHttpClient
       .SendAsync(new HttpRequestMessage(HttpMethod.Post, new Uri(BaseUri, "api/Foo/Faa"))
        Content = new StringContent(
           Encoding.UTF8, "application/json")

    var result = await response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
    return 0;

Static HttpClient still creating TIME_WAIT tcp ports

By : Lyon Liu
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
I hope this helps you . Short version
Use .NET Core 2.1 if you want to reuse connections with NTLM authentication
code :
HttpClient _client;

public void InitTheClient()
    var handler=new WebRequestHandler
                    UnsafeAuthenticatedConnectionSharing =true
    _client=new HttpClient(handler); 

HttpClient initialization within a static class

By : IFulea
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
I wish this helpful for you I'm learning C#. Would it be correct to initilize an HttpClient within a static class like this? , Yes you can achieve that by doing this:
code :
static readonly HttpClient httpClient = new HttpClient
    BaseAddress = new Uri(Network.baseAddress),
    DefaultRequestHeaders =
        Authorization =
            new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Bearer", Network.token)
