I want to add a user authentication process to an existing VB.NET-based ASP.NET Web Application that uses Web Forms and an SQL Server database. Everything I read suggested that using ASP.NET Identity was the way to go, so my first step was to use the NuGet Package Manager in VS 2019 to add the following:
I then dragged both a CreateUserWizard and a Login control on to a new aspx Web Form, but it wasn't clear what to do next. Can anyone suggest any useful sources of VB.NET-based guidance? My searches so far have not been successful.
In addition to some sample VB.NET code, I also like to know how to create a dedicated connection string in my Web.config file that tells the authentication process to use my own SQL Server database. I had assumed that a default connection string would be inserted when I installed the packages listed above, but this didn't happen.
