Does One Asp.net Identity have any user manager? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-463963973 posted

    Hi, I am using VS 2013 RC and developing my first "One Asp.net" Application.

    I realized that all things about identity is changed and when I tried to connect old asp.net configuration manager it didn't work (because of in web.config provider section is commented by default).

    Now my question is: Is there any replacement for old asp.net configuration? Can we manage users and roles in this new Identity system? How?

    I think it would be a disaster if this new identity system doesn't have any interface for managing users and roles.

    Thanks in Advance

    Yes, these APIs are available. Check the release notes for samples and docs.

    Hi Thank you for the links I looked them I have packages installed and asp.net and all new components but I don't see any user and role manager.

    Would you please tell me exactly is there any user & role manager for asp.net identity or not?

    If it exists how can I access it?

    If not how can I manage roles, etc?

    I am waiting to configure my users roles for the project I had develop with one asp.net and auth system is asp.net Identity.

    Thanks in advance

    My auth topology is very simple.

    Just local asp.net logins (no external login) is used.

    Just one app is using auth DB.

    All DB is created automatically with one asp.net.

    And I am using invidual user accounts (no organizational accounts, etc).

    The simplest authentication topology and isn't there any manager for this in asp.net identity?

    Hi again so as I see (and saw in links) there is no user manager for this new identity system.

    Please let me know if microsoft developed this missing utility.

    I mean a graphic site that will manage users and roles without writing code.

    Before One asp.net it was accessible trough Website --> ASP.NET Configuration in VS 2012

    and with that we could manage users and roles.

    Currently, no.

    So as I see there is no way that users and roles could be managed easily.

    And we should write code for it. (producing a simple role manager)

    But if microsoft developed it please let me know.

    Thanks for your attentions in these days.

    I cna't speak for what microsoft will or will not do. You'd have to ask them.

    I just came across this issue today. I wanted to try out the "UserManager" object but it appears you have to implement your own custom "IUserStore" to use the "UserManager". It probably wouldn't be that difficult but why it didn't come with a ready made implementation is beyond wonder.

    yes. MS did away with the old user manager tool that you are referring too..

    it's a pain in the neck.  Having to re-invent the wheel again.. and again.. oh and again..

    I ending up just using the API to insert the users I needed for my app since its only got two (thankfully).

    This is why I normally use Dotnetnuke for web sites. It comes with all those features built in.. but I wanted to use MVC for this and didn't expect to have

    to write my own user manager..

    If anyone comes across a plug-in or something I'd like to know. We just need a simple list of users with simple options to manage them for the app.

    I'm trying to write one that is similar to the old membership in webforms and am kind of basing it on the code here: https://aspnetidentitymanager.codeplex.com/

    Unfortunately, that code is not finished and you cannot compile or run it to really see what the auto was doing.
