How to integrate in .Net Core Web ?

Estimated reading: 3 minutes 131 views

To integrate Visual Guard in your web application for .net core, you must:

  • Add the assemblies of Visual Guard as references of your project.
  • Insert the code to enable the security in your application.
  • Create a Visual Guard repository and declare your application. This repository
    will contain all security items (users, roles, permissions …) of your
    application.
  • Generate the Visual Guard configuration files
    by using the Visual Guard console. These configuration files will be needed to
    connect your application to the repository.


Referencing Visual Guard assemblies

  • Open the solution of your project in Visual Studio.
  • In the solution explorer, expands the project node.
  • Right-click the Project node for the project and select Add Reference
    from the shortcut menu.
  • In .Net tab, select the 4 assemblies
    1. Novalys.VisualGuard.Security
    2. Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.Core.dll
    3. Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.<RepositoryType> (Files, SQLServer or Oracle)
    4. Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.WebForm.Core.dll

    And, then click the Select button, and then click the OK button

Add References Web Core

  • Novalys.VisualGuard.Security contains the main Visual Guard classes.
  • Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.Files contains the classes needed to access
    to a file based repository.
  • Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.SQLServer contains the classes needed
    to access to a repository stored in a Microsoft SQLServer database (SQLServer 2005
    or higher). Available only in Visual Guard Enterprise Edition
  • Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.Oracle
    contains the classes needed to access to a repository stored in an Oracle database
    (8i or higher). Available only in Visual Guard Enterprise Edition
  • Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.Core contains all classes required to support .Net Core applications.
    This assembly is needed only if you want to integrate Visual Guard in .net core applications.
  • Novalys.VisualGuard.Security.WebForm.Core.dll contains all classes required to support Web applications for .net core.
    This assembly is needed only if you want to integrate Visual Guard in .net core web applications.

Note Note
In the list of assemblies, Visual Studio can display different versions of the
Visual Guard assemblies. You must select the assembly corresponding to the version
of the framework and target (x64, x32, or Any CPU) used in your project.

Note Note
Please make sure Visual Guard configuration files are properly generated

  • VisualGuardConfiguration.config
  • VisualGuardConfiguration.exe.config

Note Note
Once the Visual Guard assemblies are referenced into project, you need to mark “Copy Local” property to “true” for each assembly.


Install packages using Nuget Packages Manager

  • Microsoft.AspNetCore.App 2.2.0
  • System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager 4.5.0
  • System.Drawing.Common 4.5.1
  • System.DirectoryServices 4.5.0


Apply changes in your code

  • In Method – ConfigureServices()
    services.AddVGConfig(this.Configuration);

    web Core startup 2
  • In Method – Configure()
    C#
    app.UseVGAuthentication();

    Web Core startup


Common issue while integrating VisualGuard in .net core web applications.

  • InvalidOperationException: Unable to resolve service for type ‘Microsoft.AspNetCore.Http.IHttpContextAccessor’.
    Solution:
    Please check if you have added following code in Method ConfigureServices() of Statup.cs file.

    public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    {
        services.AddVGConfig(this.Configuration);
    }
