ASP.NET Identity SupportΒΆ

An ASP.NET Identity-based implementation is provided for managing the identity database for users of IdentityServer. This implementation implements the extensibility points in IdentityServer needed to load identity data for your users to emit claims into tokens.

The repo for this support is located here and the NuGet package is here.

To use this library, configure ASP.NET Identity normally. Then use the AddAspNetIdentity extension method after the call to AddIdentityServer:

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    services.AddIdentity<ApplicationUser, IdentityRole>()


AddAspNetIdentity requires as a generic parameter the class that models your user for ASP.NET Identity (and the same one passed to AddIdentity to configure ASP.NET Identity). This configures IdentityServer to use the ASP.NET Identity implementations of IUserClaimsPrincipalFactory, IResourceOwnerPasswordValidator, and IProfileService. It also configures some of ASP.NET Identity’s options for use with IdentityServer (such as claim types to use and authenticaiton cookie settings).
