Real(ish) demo using Angular with ASP.NET Core GraphQL and IdentityServer.

Based on the multi part tutorial series:

Part 1: Building an ASP.NET Core auth server using IdentityServer

Part 2: Angular app foundation with user signup and login features

Part 3: Implementing an ASP.NET Core GraphQL API with authorization using GraphQL .NET

Part 4: Integrating Angular with a backend GraphQL API using Apollo Client

Development Environment

  • .NET Core 3.1
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Visual Studio 2019 Professional for Windows
  • SQL Server Express 2016 LocalDB
  • Node.js with npm
  • Angular CLI


To build and run the solution:

Get the Code

Clone or create a template from this repository.

Create the Sql Server Database

Use migrations to create the database as follows:

From the command line use the dotnet CLI to apply the migrations from each project's Infrastructure folder.

  1. FullStackJobs.AuthServer.Infrastructure> dotnet ef database update --context PersistedGrantDbContext
  2. FullStackJobs.AuthServer.Infrastructure> dotnet ef database update --context AppIdentityDbContext
  3. FullStackJobs.GraphQL.Infrastructure> dotnet ef database update

Build and Run the AuthServer and GraphQL API Backend Projects

Visual Studio for Windows

Open the FullStackJobs.sln solution file which contains both the AuthServer and GraphQL API projects.  You must configure the solution to start up both projects.  Once complete, start the solution in the debugger or use the CLI dotnet run command to run them individually.

todo: Add instructions for VS Code.

Build and Run the Angular Frontend Project

  1. Use npm to install depdendencies from `package.json'.
Spa> npm install
  1. Use the Angular CLI to build and launch the app on the webpack development server.
Spa> ng serve

View the App

Point your browser to https://localhost:4200 to access the application.

Host Configuration

The AuthServer is configured to run at https://localhost:8787 while the GraphQL API is set to https://localhost:5025.

If you need to change these locations for your environment there are several spots in the solution you must update.


  • The RESOURCE_BASE_URI and AUTH_BASE_URI values in the config service.


  • The OpendIDConnect Authority in Startup
services.AddAuthentication(options =>
  options.DefaultAuthenticateScheme = JwtBearerDefaults.AuthenticationScheme;
  options.DefaultChallengeScheme = JwtBearerDefaults.AuthenticationScheme;
}).AddJwtBearer(o =>
  o.Authority = "https://localhost:8787";
  o.Audience = "resourceapi";
  o.RequireHttpsMetadata = false;
