Custom User Service for Thinktecture Identity Server V3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1741474265 posted

    I am trying to create a custom user service to authenticate a user against multiple user stores. As per my understanding I have to create a new service implementing interface IUserService.

    In my login page users will enter username , password and they will select a organization name which is displayed as a dropdown. This organization name will decide which user store to use. Now, should I write different UserServices for each organization or is there way that I can do with one something like passing an extra parameter to AuthenticateLocalAsync(string username, string password, SignInMessage message)?

    If I develop three services how to register them to work based on the organization selected?

    That scenario is not supported. You would need to implement either a partial login or a custom view with a custom user service.

    Thank you Allen. I have created custom view service and added a new field for the domain. Also created a custom user service that implements IUserService. How will the AuthenticateLocalAsync will get the "domain" value from the model. How can I wire this up?

    It won't -- this is why I suggested that you might need to do a custom view. The other approach is you can make the use put the domain in the username field, but that's a bit of a hack. So, in short, this is not supported.

    are there any references on how to create a custom view? Ordo you suggest a better way to implement this? Thank you

    Allen, first of all many thanks for your quick response and sorry to keep coming back at you. Either I am too dumb or I am missing something very simple. Can you please clarify few things?

    1. I initially assumed Custom View and Custom View Service are same. Looks like I am wrong. So by Custom View you mean normal html page with in "assets" folder of the hosting application? If yes, once I create this how can send my extra argument to User Service? Or do I need to call a corresponding user service (assuming each or has different services) based on the "domain" selected in the custom view?

    2. Is there a way to achieve this using Dependency Injection like below. Is there a way to inject the "domain" value after the login view is submitted?

    factory.Register(new Registration<IDomain, Org1Domain>("ORG1"));
    factory.Register(new Registration<IDomain, Org2Domain>("ORG2"));
    factory.UserService = new Registration<IUserService>(resolver => new LocalRegistrationUserService(resolver.Resolve<IDomain>(domain)));

    Well, as I mentioned before -- your scenario is not something supported. You might be able to get it to work, but I've not tried myself and I'm not certain you can (and I wrote much of the code). We just didn't design to allow for that.

    Hi Brock,

    Does the latest version of IdentityServer3 (2.5.0) already contains this featuare? I need to create the same scenario of rajarameshvarma1 and pass a parameter from the login page to user service.

    I'm looking foward to rear from you.

    Thanks you!

    Best regards

    In your custom login page put your dropdown or something else like this:

    <input type="text" name="extra" id="extra" />

    in your userservice...

    public class UserService : UserServiceBase
    private readonly IUserRepository userRepository;
    IOwinContext ctx;

    public UserService(IUserRepository userRepository, OwinEnvironmentService env)
    this.userRepository = userRepository;
    ctx = new OwinContext(env.Environment);

    public override async Task AuthenticateLocalAsync(LocalAuthenticationContext context)
    {var form = await ctx.Request.ReadFormAsync();

    var extra = form["extra"];

    after that put your logic in action to authenticate in a data store you want.
