    Does IdentityServer uses SimpleMembership provider to manage users?

  2. Mark says:

    Hi Dominick,

    We have a legacy system that validates users (actually, it’s more or less Users DB with some basic information).
    How would you recommend to integrate IdentityServer with such a legacy?


  3. IdSrv is very extensible – you can implement IUserRepository and IClaimsRepository to adapt to arbitraty backend stores.

      Such an instant reply :):):)

      So practically, it would be a “fallback” to LegacyUserRepository.
      In case, IdentityServer native UserRepository doesn’t return a record, we’ll try the legacy right?

      Thank you

  4. No. You replace the built-in one (based on membership) with your repository.

  5. IdSrv does not do any account linking, it is just and idp + federation gateway

    Dominick – Can you please help me with some step by step instructions on using my own User repository/ database table for Identity server to authenticate against? I know other people have done it, but can’t seem to figure out how. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

  7. Please use the issue tracker on github for idsrv questions.
