Implementing an API Gateway in ASP.NET Core with Ocelot

February 22, 2022 by Anuraj

AspNetCore ApiGateway Microservices

This post is about what is an API Gateway and how to build an API Gateway in ASP.NET Core with Ocelot. An API gateway is service that sits between an endpoint and backend APIs, transmitting client requests to an appropriate service of an application. It’s an architectural pattern, which was initially created to support microservices. In this post I am building API Gateway using Ocelot. Ocelot is aimed at people using .NET running a micro services / service orientated architecture that need a unified point of entry into their system.

Implementing Basic Authentication in ASP.NET Core Minimal API

February 13, 2022 by Anuraj

AspNetCore C# MinimalApi

This post is about how implement basic authentication in ASP.NET Core Minimal API. Few days back I got a question / comment in the blog post about Minimal APIs - about implementing Basic authentication in Minimal APIs. Since the Action Filters support is not available in Minimal API I had to find some alternative approach for the implementation. I already wrote two blog posts Basic authentication middleware for ASP.NET 5 and Basic HTTP authentication in ASP.Net Web API on implementing Basic authentication. In this post I am implementing an AuthenticationHandler and using this for implementing basic authentication. As I already explained enough about the concepts, I am not discussing them again in this post.

This implies that the appliance usually renders additional quickly, giving users an opportunity to look at the appliance layout before it becomes totally interactive.

Azure Serverless

This post is about how to follow naming conventions for Azure Function consumption plans. Unlike Azure App Services, when we create Azure Functions with consumption plan Azure will create a plan name which you can’t modify. If you’re following certain naming conventions it will be different from what you’re following. Here is an example.

December 14, 2021 by Anuraj

AspNetCore DotNet6

This post is about how to update an existing ASP.NET Core 5.0 MVC project to ASP.NET Core 6.0. I am sharing my experience while upgrading one of .NET 5.0 project to the .NET 6.0. First we need to upgrade TargetFramework element in the csproj file from net5.0 to net6.0. We can enable other .NET 6.0 framework features as well, like Nullable and ImplicitUsings.
