So, how do I authenticate a user account in MVC 5? before the user had to confirm their email address, I do not see that option in MVC 5. Also, what happened to the "forgot my password" option… where the user could change their password? Is this MVC
5 considered and upgrade? Thanks.
Its in there still but its under a package called Identity 2.0.
The samples are still classed as "prerelease" on the nuget packages so it can be a bit tricky to get started.
You can read a tutorial here on the site:
The important nuget package is this line in the tutorial:
Install-Package -Prerelease Microsoft.AspNet.Identity.Samples
This tutorial has been helping me to configure it all correctly (I’ve actually been getting to grips with this myself today):
Try out for WebSecurity in MVC provides a nice and simple way to authenticate your login and users.
