[Question] ASP.net Identity MySQL custom database tables


My task at a new company is to develop a Web API for our existing Web Application. (Build with WebForms and Flash). It uses a MySQL Maria DB database first backend.

I want to build the a Identity solution so users of the Web App can register, authenticate etc. Using the ASP.net Identity Framework would be nice. Problem is our database has existing tables like tbl_user, tbl_roles, and I have to use these.

Is there a way to use the Identity Framework with custom MySQL table names? I cannot find a solution.

I've followed this how to: MySql Identity Provider But every tutorial on changing the table names need either code first or the ASP.net Identity Framework.
