Version 5.x has been out of support since December 13, 2022, and this corresponding section of the documentation is no longer maintained. We strongly recommend upgrading to a supported version.

Packaging and Builds


You can find the Duende IdentityServer source code on GitHub.

This repo is the source for the following main product Nuget packages:


Duende IdentityServer does not contain any UI, because this is always custom to the project. We still provide you a starting point for your modifications.


Contains templates for the dotnet CLI.

You can install the templates using the following command:

dotnet new -i Duende.IdentityServer.Templates

Dev builds

In addition we publish CI builds to our package repository. Add the following nuget.config to your project to access the CI feed:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <add key="Duende IdentityServer CI" value="" />
