Web Forms to MVC 5 Identity Issue RRS feed

    I am trying to convert my existing Web Forms website to MVC 5 and I am trying to use my current database MyDB ( that is not the real name ) that contains a table called tblUsers.  I currently use this table thoughout my website to do permissions and hierarchy.  How do I use AspNetUsers to coordinate with tblUsers?  Do people seed the old data into AspNetUsers from their existing User table or do they normally do something else?  I was thinking of having a AspNetUserId column in tblUsers to correlate with AspNetUsers so when the user logs in it will still use AspNetUsers but then I run all my queries by joining tblUsers with AspNetUsers to get all the information i really want.  I haven't seen any examples of this being done so I don't know if that is the right way to do it or not.

    Examples would be great if possible.

    Thanks in advance
