Thinktecture IdentityManager beta 1

September 8, 2014

Dominick and I have been quite busy on IdentityServer v3 as well as IdentityManager. We’re making good progress and this post is to announce beta 1 of IdentityManager.

A brief recap of what IdentityManager is all about:

IdentityManager is a tool for developers and/or administrators to manage the identity information for users of their applications. This includes creating users, editing user information (passwords, email, claims, etc.) and deleting users. It provides a modern replacement for the ASP.NET WebSite Administration tool that used to be built into Visual Studio.

Some features that IdentityManager provides:

  • A browser based user interface as well as a RESTful API for managing user identity data
  • Allows creating, deleting, and managing user identity data
    • Claims as well as strongly typed properties are supported
  • Allows managing role definitions
  • Special support for MembershipReboot and ASP.NET Identity identity management systems
    • Extensible API to allow for additional identity management systems such as ActiveDirectory, WAAD, LDAP and/or ASP.NET Membership (if you’re interesting in contributing, this would be a great area to help out with!)
  • Designed as OWIN middleware to allow for flexible hosting
  • Security model to authorize local users or users from an external OAuth2 authorization server
  • Open source (BSD3)

Here are some updated screen shots:





Feel free to check out the documentation, the code, and please provide feedback. Thanks.

    Hi there,
    Sorry for being a complete noob here but can you point me in the direction of a step by step guide to integrate this into an existing MVC 5 Identity Website? I’ve gone so far as using NuGet to install Thinktecture IdentityManager – AspNetIdentity & Thinktecture IdentityManager and when i trying and add the Configuration within Startup.cs it can’t find the UserManagerFactory library. I have 2 usings; Thinktecture.IdentityManager & Thinktecture.IdentityManager.AspNetIdentity

    I’m new to all this so would appreciate a little help to integrate what looks like a great solution for a project i’m working on :)
