Welcome to another Tuesday TNWiki Article Spotlight.
ASP.NET Core 2.0 continues to evolve eight months after its official release. When Microsoft announced ASP.NET Core almost two years ago, many people wondered why we needed another ASP.NET. As we come to learn all ASP.NET Core 2.0 offers, it continues to show new approaches to coding.
In today’s blog post, we will look at how identity and role management works in ASP.NET Core 2.0. To do this, we will use the TechNet Wiki article Getting Started With ASP.NET Core 2.0 Identity And Role Management by Syed Shanu.
In the article, Syed takes the reader through creating a new web MVC project in Visual Studio 2017 using Individual User Accounts as the authentication model. To work with this model, Syed utilizes ASP.NET Core Identity Services. In the project, he creates users and roles, saves them to a database, and then uses these permissions to authenticate users on the website.
While all the steps are clearly documented, the article also has a link to the source code of the demo application so you can see how the project is configured.
