    Hey Brock, How can we hook IdentityManager into IdentityServer? Any package to create a IUserSevice from IdentityManager? Maybe a sample somewhere?

    Great videos, Brock.

    How about creating a walkthrough video for IdentityManager with MembershipReboot?

    Thanks for sharing a video, it’s a very helpful and easy to use. support two-factor authentication using SMS and email with Identity. I cannot find “email” in two-factor authentication, is there way to enable “email” to sending code ?

    Hi Brock,
    Thanks for the excellent IdentityManager! I am not able to get filtering to work for name claim as you are showing in the video? Really weird? I have added a claim with name=name and a value but the filter/search only works for the username not the claim? I can see the claim in the database…

    Any idea why it’s not working for me? I am using the aspnet identity version…

      It would depend on the service’s implementation. The default works one way, but if you plug in a different backing identity library you need to write some code to provide the filter logic. I’d suggest looking at the MR and AspId implementation differences to see how that’s done.

    Hi Brock,

    Thank you for sharing the code.
    I have some issuses translating the code to VB, maybe you can help Me?

    public partial class Startup
    public void Configuration(IAppBuilder app)

    app.Map(“/idm”, idm =>
    var factory = new IdentityManagerServiceFactory();
    factory.IdentityManagerService = new Registration();
    factory.Register(new Registration());
    factory.Register(new Registration());
    factory.Register(new Registration());
    factory.Register(new Registration());
    //factory.Register(new Registration(resolver => new ApplicationDbContext(“foo”)));
    factory.Register(new Registration());

    idm.UseIdentityManager(new IdentityManagerOptions {
    Factory = factory

    Good work with IdentityManager.

    My ASP.NET Identity database is no longer vanilla since I’ve added some extra tables (AspNetCompanies for one).

    I was really keen to hook up with IdentityManager to manage my customised model but it seems IdentityManager AspNetIdentity is really bound to an off-the-shelf ASP.NET Identity schema. I know there is provision to extend the properties but I really wanted to add complete new entities. For example, I figured I’d probably need a CompanyManager to match the built-in UserManager and RoleManager along with all the other bits needed like a CompanyStore, company metadata, etc …….

    I’ve played around for a while and will eventually be able to wire it all up but I’m finding it’s a fair bit of work. Of course I could be missing something but would be keen to know what you think of my plan to extend IdentityManager in this way.

    Or perhaps I’m better off starting from scratch with my own implementation.

    If someone else has done anything similar it would be good to see some samples.

      Yes, IdMgr was meant to make it easy to get started. It’s not an arbitrary DB editor.

      Darryl, I would be interested if you found a solution as I am faced with the same challenge.

        I spent a bit of time but gave up. The code is very tightly bound to a standard Identity model.

        Haven’t done so yet but will probably develop my own manager.
