ASP.NET Core Identity is a package that contains reusable code for dealing with identity and authentication. In this video, learn how to add the packages to the API.
- The first step to adding authentication to the API…is adding the ASP.NET Core Identity packages.…ASP.NET Core Identity contains reusable code…for dealing with accounts, passwords,…and other authentication concerns.…The identity packages are, in fact,…already included in this project…because it references AspNetCore.App which is a meta package…that pulls in all of the useful ASP.NET Core packages.…To use ASP.NET Core Identity, let's create an entity model…that represents a user or an account in the API.…
We'll create this in the models folder…and we'll call this UserEntity.…This needs to derive from IdentityUser…which is a base class from ASP.NET Core Identity.…And we'll make this IdentityUser of Guid…to indicate that we'll use GUID IDs for our users.…I'll add some properties here.…Public string FirstName and LastName…and maybe a creation time.…
We'll also create an entity that describes a role…that the user can be in.…We'll use roles to represent different types of users…like administrators.…Create this class as UserRoleEntity.…
