ASP.Net Identity for Umbraco

Version 5.0

Allows for using OWIN & ASP.Net Identity in Umbraco for front-end members

This project will allow the use of ASP.Net Identity and OWIN to work for Umbraco members on your front-end website. It is compatible with your current members and how passwords are currently hashed - so long as your membership provider is configured for hashing passwords (default) and not encrypting them.

There are some known issues and limitations

Minimum Requirements:

This package requires Umbraco 7.5.6+.

If you are upgrading to UmbracoIdentity 5.0.0 you will need to read these instructions!

If you are using Umbraco version 7.1.6+ and less than 7.3.0, see here for installation instructions (you will need to use version 2 of this package)



PM> Install-Package UmbracoIdentity

There's also a nightly Nuget feed:

There is also just an UmbracoIdentity.Core package too in case you just want the binaries

PM> Install-Package UmbracoIdentity.Core

Config updates

These config updates 'should' be taken care of by the nuget install, but you should double check to be sure.

Remove FormsAuthentication from your web.config, this should be the last entry in your httpmodules lists:

<remove name="FormsAuthenticationModule" />

The entry is slightly different for the system.webServer/modules list:

<remove name="FormsAuthentication" />

You then need to disable FormsAuthentication as the authentication provider, change the authentication element to:

<authentication mode="None" />

Replace the 'type' attribute of your UmbracoMembershipProvider in your web.config to be:

"UmbracoIdentity.IdentityEnabledMembersMembershipProvider, UmbracoIdentity"

Owin setup

What is OWIN? If you are unsure, be sure to read this before you continue!

If you are familiar with OWIN then here's what to do...

  • Models/UmbracoApplicationMember - this is similar to the ApplicationUser class that comes with the VS 2013 template, except that this one inherits from UmbracoIdentityMember. You can customize this how you like.
  • App_Start/UmbracoIdentityStartup - this is the OWIN startup class that will be used
  • In your web.config, change the appSetting owin:appStartup to: UmbracoIdentityStartup
  • The UmbracoIdentityStartup file is now your OWIN startup class, you can modify it if you require Identity customizations. If you want to enable 3rd party OAuth authentication, you'll need to follow the normal ASP.Net Identity documentation, sample code for this exists in the UmbracoIdentityStartup class.


See docs for examples, usage, etc...
