XAF - Role-based Access Control & User Authentication API in ASP.NET Core MVC Apps (powered by XPO)

XAF Team Blog
19 November 2019

UPDATED: .NET App Security API (Role-based Access Control) is available free-of-charge (versions 21.2.x and 22.1.x).

Here is our ASP.NET Core MVC demo and step-by-step tutorial for XAF’s user authentication and group authorization API. Many of you asked us to deliver this demo – thank you for your feedback and your continued engagement.

If you’re using Xamarin, WPF or Blazor, please be patient with us – we will produce user authentication and group authorization demos for these platforms shortly.

We also hope to update our samples to .NET Core 3.0 where applicable. And finally, we do expect to refactor and simplify demo code and instructions. For instance, instead of IsGranted calls, which may accept many parameters, we will introduce CanRead, CanWrite and other shortcuts in v19.2.4. XAF WinForms and WebForms developers will benefit from these usability enhancements as well.

More than one year ago I explained to my collaborators that in my opinion it was possible to integrate into an existing WinForms enterprise application 10 years old with XAF/XPO security layer and UI interface.

We successfully implement it! 40 man-days of job in total instead of at least 400 if I had decided to start from scratch.

You guys saved my life!!
