Identity Core Primary Key as Int not able to use SignInManager

What I’m trying to do is the following:

Setup login/logout using Identity Core, with the Primary Key as Int. I followed the following article in the ASP.NET Core Documentation: Configure Identity primary keys data type. (They use GUID’s but the idea is the same).
The setup is quite succesfull, the ID’s are integers and the database is getting populated.

However, when I try to sign in using the built-in SignInManager<ApplicationUser> and invoking the the method

var result = await _signInManager.PasswordSignInAsync(Username,Password, RememberMe, lockoutOnFailure: false);

I get the following error:

System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: value

I’m sure the SecurityTimeStamp is filled up and the services are added in the Startup.cs

services.AddIdentity<ApplicationUser, ApplicationRole>()
            .AddEntityFrameworkStores<ApplicationDbContext, int>()
            .AddDefaultTokenProviders();

My classes:

ApplicationUser

public class ApplicationUser : IdentityUser<int>
{
}

ApplicationRole

public class ApplicationRole : IdentityRole<int>
{
}

ApplicationDbContext

public class ApplicationDbContext : IdentityDbContext<ApplicationUser, ApplicationRole, int>
        {
            public ApplicationDbContext(DbContextOptions<ApplicationDbContext> options)
                : base(options)
            {
            }
    }

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

Dropped and recreated the database … pretty obvious.

//Solved.

Solution 2

3 years later I have stubmled upon this issue. Recreating database didn’t help. I have changed as above the PK from string to int and UserManager have been creating records successfully but then the SignInManager have been failing to sign in the newly created user with the same error.

Solution:

I have found out that just assiging a role to the user upon creation solved the issue.

await userManager.AddToRoleAsync(user, UserRoles.Basic.ToString());

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
