Updating asp.net MVC from 5.0.0-beta2 to 5.0.0-rc1

Last night, I decided to try and implement SignalR to my application, and because I use MVC 5, I had to use the 2.0 beta of SignalR.

And oh boy, what a timing. Last night, Microsoft also decided to roll out rc1 of all their mvc 5 related packages, and updating broke a few things – mostly in the account controller that is in the template for beta2.

public AccountController() 
    IdentityStore = new IdentityStoreManager();
    AuthenticationManager = new IdentityAuthenticationManager(IdentityStore);

public AccountController(IdentityStoreManager storeManager, IdentityAuthenticationManager authManager)
    IdentityStore = storeManager;
    AuthenticationManager = authManager;

public IdentityStoreManager IdentityStore { get; private set; }
public IdentityAuthenticationManager AuthenticationManager { get; private set; }

IdentityStoreManager and IdentityAuthenticationManager are no longer recognized.

Has anyone successfully migrated to rc1 yet? I can’t find any documentation or updated templates from MS.


Thank you for visiting the Q&A section on Magenaut. Please note that all the answers may not help you solve the issue immediately. So please treat them as advisements. If you found the post helpful (or not), leave a comment & I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Method 1

Update the following nuget packages:

  • Microsoft ASP.NET Identity EntityFramework version=”1.0.0-rc1″
  • Microsoft.Owin.Security version=”2.0.0-rc1″
  • Microsoft.Owin.Security.OAuth version=”2.0.0-rc1″

Get these:

  • Microsoft.AspNet.Identity.Owin version=”1.0.0-rc1″
  • Microsoft.Owin.Host.SystemWeb version=”2.0.0-rc1″

Then you will still have a lot of errors in your AccountController.cs file.
But now you have the classes in your project to fix them, or you could get my AccountController.cs file which is fixed, well it compiles and the application runs, but there is a spot (commented with todo:) that I am not sure about yet.

You can download my AccountController.cs file from my sample project on github here:

Method 2

IdentityStoreManager is now called IdentityStore

IdentityAuthenticationManager is now IdentityManager

Method 3

Those classes have moved types. Please look at the following commit to get more information on how to make AccountController work
