ASP.NET Identity UserManager and RoleManager Extension

Virto Commerce has a custom implementation of default UserManager and RoleManager, which is VirtoCommerce.Platform.Web.Security.CustomUserManager and VirtoCommerce.Platform.Web.Security.CustomRoleManager, respectively.

Override UserManager with Custom Implementation

The Virto Commerce custom User Manager is registered in the DI as the UserManager type and a factory method, which allows using UserManager within the scoped requests.

public void Initialize(IServiceCollection serviceCollection) 
  serviceCollection.AddScoped<UserManager<ApplicationUser>, MyCustomUserManager>();

Custom RoleManager is registered similarly.


You can get both user and role managers by adding the respective factory to your service constructor:

 public class MyCoolService 
        private readonly Func<UserManager<ApplicationUser>> _userManagerFactory;
        private readonly Func<RoleManager<Role>> _roleManagerFactory;

        public MyCoolService(Func<UserManager<ApplicationUser>> userManagerFactory, Func<RoleManager<Role>> roleManagerFactory)
            _userManagerFactory = userManagerFactory;
            _roleManagerFactory = roleManagerFactory;

        public void DoMyCoolWork()
            using var userManager = userManagerFactory();
            using var roleManager = roleManagerFactory();


In common cases, you do not need to get User or Role Manager directly by type. You can use factories instead.
