How to use Asp.net Identity 2.0 with the existing simple security data table? RRS feed

  • User1076132426 posted


    We have many applications used the simple flat table (only two columns: user ID and Password).  Now, we want to develop a new system apply token based authentication (http://bitoftech.net/2014/06/01/token-based-authentication-asp-net-web-api-2-owin-asp-net-identity/).

    However, we don't want to enhance the existing applications to use "IdentityDbContext" class as it is more complex with the existing login and password tables. 

    Is there any method or tutorial to use token based authentication with the simple login and password table?

    Sure -- just ignore the pieces in the sample that use Asp.Net Identity and use your simple membership instead.
