Defining API scope in appsettings.json

The AddInMemoryApiResource extensions method also supports adding clients from the ASP.NET Core configuration file:

"IdentityServer": {
    "IssuerUri": "urn:sso.company.com",
    "ApiScopes": [
        {
            "Name": "IdentityServerApi"
        },
        {
            "Name": "resource1.scope1"
        },
        {
            "Name": "resource2.scope1"
        },
        {
            "Name": "scope3"
        },
        {
            "Name": "shared.scope"
        },
        {
            "Name": "transaction",
            "DisplayName": "Transaction",
            "Description": "A transaction"
        }
    ]
}

Then pass the configuration section to the AddInMemoryApiScopes method:

AddInMemoryApiScopes(configuration.GetSection("IdentityServer:ApiScopes"))
