Feature Requests

Feature, docs and use-case samples requests for ServiceStack. If you can, focus on the end-user benefit / use-case, rather than the technical details so we can focus on the end-goal and free us to work on how best to achieve it. Features can also include supporting content, e.g. a starter project on how to use ServiceStack with another product (e.g. SS + SharePoint).

  1. Add SAML 2.0 auth provider

    Add SAML 2.0 as built in auth provider. Really useful for Azure AD SSO.

  2. Add Emailing functionality to Verify Account, Request Password Reset

    It would be a good idea for users when using Service Stack Authentication to have functionality like Asp.net Identity to Verify their account, reset their password.

  3. Allow cookie names to be configurable

    In order to improve security it would be beneficial to change cookie names from const to a configurable option. It would help mask the presence of service stack and improve security in accordance with OWASP recommendations - https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Session_Management_Cheat_Sheet#Session_ID_Name_Fingerprinting

  5. Unions implementation for ORM Lite

    Hi

    In my application user can define multiple filters for specific type. I would like to somehow combine these queries in single one.

    SqlExpression<Notice> query1 = Db.From<Notice>(s=>s.param1 == 2);
    // ...queries are more complicated but result type is same
    SqlExpression<Notice> query2 = Db.From<Notice>(s=>s.param1 == 3 && s.param2 == 3);

    SqlExpression<Notice> unionAll = query1.UnionAll(query2);
    var result = Db.Select(unionAll);

  6. Add an LDAP Authentication Provider

    With .NET Core not initially having support for Windows Authentication using the System.Directory assemblies, I would like to request the addition of a new LDAP Authentication Provider based on the Novell.Directory.Ldap.NETStandard (https://github.com/dsbenghe/Novell.Directory.Ldap.NETStandard) project. This will allow developers to update to the latest ServiceStack while still providing a way to authenticate and authorize against a legacy/non-Azure Active Directory.

  7. Encrypted messaging javascript client

    We have message-level encryption and the corresponding .Net client library to use it. But I'd love to be able to call encrypted services from JavaScript. Ideally add to ss-utils.js, or because the encryption can get bulky, into a new ss-encrypt-utils.js.

  8. SDK Documentation

    The c# SDK is seriously lagging in documentation. By that I mean IntelliSense documentation: it would be awsome with some "in line" documentation for methods and properties in the SDK

  9. support F# data type for serialization and deserialization

    This is specially for option type and discriminated unions. Currently it is not supported by Servicestack.Text. It would be great to have support for that.

    For

    type City = Abad | Pune

    [<CLIMutableAttribute>]
    type Person = {
    FirstName:string
    LastName: string option
    City : City
    }

    let p1 = {FirstName = "Foo"; LastName = Some "Bar"; City = Pune}

    let jss = new JsonStringSerializer()
    let p1Str = jss.SerializeToString(p1)

    It is serializing
    "{"FirstName":"Foo","LastName":{"Value":"Bar"},"City":{"Tag":1,"IsAbad":false,"IsPune":true}}"

    Where is should be
    "{"FirstName":"Foo","LastName":"Bar","City":"Pune"}"

    For reference https://github.com/Microsoft/fsharplu/wiki/fsharplu.json is library by MSR.

    It would be great to have this feature so DTO can be written in F# types. Currently…

  10. Create Auto Crud

    Take a project like http://www.mattjcowan.com/funcoding/2013/05/11/restful-api-and-ui-for-typed-views-and-typed-lists/
    and lift it to the next level.
    Purpose: Point ActiveScaffold with AutoCrud to your database, and you get a half sensible CRUD web interface to maintain it. In other words, an instant backoffice.
    This is orthogonal to any other API usage of ServiceStack.

    Inspired by the Rails equivalent "https://github.com/activescaffold/active_scaffold&quot; that is very nicely designed, with both configuration and override possibilities.

    Using servicestack client in mobile development with Xamarin gives so much benefits and caching dramatically improves performance and user experience.

  12. ServiceStack GraphQL endpoint

    I've just stumbled upon Facebook's GraphQL and it's pretty slick.
    The ability to query a ServiceStack endpoint using GraphQL would be a great addition (maybe similar to AutoQuery?) If ORMLite could also populate an object graph using a GraphQL query...

  13. OpenID Connect Auth Provider

    "OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an authentication layer on top of OAuth 2.0, an authorization framework." The benefit to developers and consumers is a more simplified way to add a new Auth provider which would provide some standard user info.
    http://openid.net/connect/

  14. Improvements for batched requests

    I've started working with request batching, which is a really nice feature. Everything works, but there two improvements I'd like to see.

    Firstly, for IReturnVoid requests there is SendAllOneWay, but there is no async version of that method.

    Secondly, I'd like to be able to specify a http Verb with the SendAll methods. The implementation should select the correct method in the service, both when calling a single request method multiple times, but also for the batched method. Right now the batched service methods always need to be Any(), it would be nice to be able to have Delete(OrderID[] orders).

  16. Support oAuth2 login to Swagger API

    Swagger now support oAuth login page to create a access_token to apply to a oAuth protected API: http://developers-blog.helloreverb.com/enabling-oauth-with-swagger/

    Please could you add a similar capability to ServiceSatck.SwaggerFeature that enables SS developers to add a similar capability to their own APIS that are protected by oAuth.

  19. Add BulkInsert/Bulk Copy to the ormlite databases you can

    Being able to bulk insert/copy would be cool.

    Adding support in so I could just take a list and

    Db.BulkCopy(listOfObjects);

    would be pretty sweet.

    SqlServer has the bulkCopy object, postgres has the copy command, sqlite has import (although no idea how well that works) , and mysql...well...who cares (i don't know what they have)

    Having a single interface for bulk copying objects into different databases I think would be a nice feature for ormlite. (not sure how feasible)
