I'm setting up a new project using asp.net 5 and MVC 6, but I want to use Entity Framework 6 due to the missing features in EF 7.
I setup EF 6.1.3 and that is working.
Identity 3.0 depends on EF 7 so I have removed that and referenced in Identity 2.2 but I'm not sure where to go from here.
I'm not sure how this will be handled in the final release of ASP.NET 5, but in the case of ASP.NET 5 RC1 we have the following:
Firstly, you should go with Identity 3.0, as there is no way to use Identity 2.x in MVC 6 as far as I know.
Secondly, to make Identity 3.0 work with EF6, you need to implementation your own "EF6-friendly" versions of all classes under Microsoft.AspNet.Identity.EntityFramework namespace (the code is available here- https://github.com/aspnet/Identity/tree/3.0.0-rc1/src/Microsoft.AspNet.Identity.EntityFramework), as original classes are meant to work with EF7 only:
Your implementations should utilize EF6 instead of EF7. The process is pretty straightforward, but if you want to save time, I have shared my implementation here:
