dotnet new templates for IdentityServer4

Important update

This project is not maintained anymore. This repo will be archived when .NET Core 3.1 end of support is reached (13th Dec 2022). All new development is happening in the new Duende Software organization.

dotnet new is4empty

Creates a minimal IdentityServer4 project without a UI.

dotnet new is4ui

Adds the quickstart UI to the current project (can be e.g added on top of is4empty)

dotnet new is4inmem

Adds a basic IdentityServer with UI, test users and sample clients and resources. Shows both in-memory code and JSON configuration.

dotnet new is4aspid

Adds a basic IdentityServer that uses ASP.NET Identity for user management. If you automatically seed the database, you will get two users: alice and bob - both with password Pass123$. Check the SeedData.cs file.

dotnet new is4ef

Adds a basic IdentityServer that uses Entity Framework for configuration and state management. If you seed the database, you get a couple of basic client and resource registrations, check the SeedData.cs file.

dotnet new is4admin

Adds an IdentityServer that includes the Rock Solid Knowledge AdminUI Community Edition (open http://localhost:5000/admin in the browser). This gives you a web-based administration interface for users, claims, clients and resources.

The community edition is intended for testing IdentityServer integration scenarios and is limited to localhost:5000, SQLite, 10 users, and 2 clients. The community edition is not suitable for production.

See for more information about AdminUI or to request a trial license.


Install with:

dotnet new -i identityserver4.templates

If you need to set back your dotnet new list to "factory defaults", use this command:

dotnet new --debug:reinit
