.NET 6 - Async scopes

Services in .NET Core can be registered using the built-in dependency injection functionality with different lifetimes:

  • Transient
  • Scoped
  • Singleton

Scoped services are created for a specific period of time linked to a scope. For example when using ASP.NET Core a scoped service lifetime is coupled to a client request.

An important feature of scoped services is that they are disposed when the scope is closed.

It is possible to create a scope yourself using the CreateScope method on the IServiceProvider:

If you run the example above you’ll see that the Foo instance is correctly disposed after leaving the scope.

So far, so good. But what about when your service implements the IAsyncDisposable interface instead?

To support this scenario in a non-breaking way, a new CreateAsyncScope method is introduced on the IServiceProviderinterface in .NET 6.

Here is an updated example using this feature:

Remark: ASP.NET Core was updated as well and implementations of IDisposable and IAsyncDisposable are properly disposed at the end of a request when registering them with a scoped service lifetime.

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

I ran into an issue after accidently enabling HSTS for a website on localhost. This was not an issue for the original website that was running in IIS and had a certificate configured. But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
