This template allows you to create an Azure SignalR Service. Azure SignalR Service is an Azure managed service that helps developers build web applications with real-time features. To learn more about how to deploy the template, see the quickstart article.

Good candidates for SignalR

  • Apps that require high frequency updates from the server. Examples are gaming, social networks, voting, auction, maps, and GPS apps.
  • Dashboards and monitoring apps. Examples include company dashboards, instant sales updates, or travel alerts.
  • Collaborative apps. Whiteboard apps and team meeting software are examples of collaborative apps.
  • Apps that require notifications. Social networks, email, chat, games, travel alerts, and many other apps use notifications.
  • SignalR provides an API for creating server-to-client remote procedure calls (RPC). The RPCs call JavaScript functions on clients from server-side .NET Core code.

Features of SignalR for ASP.NET Core

  • Handles connection management automatically.
  • Sends messages to all connected clients simultaneously. For example, a chat room.
  • Sends messages to specific clients or groups of clients.
  • Scales to handle increasing traffic.


SignalR also enables completely new types of web applications that require high frequency updates from the server, for example, real-time gaming.

SignalR provides a simple API for creating server-to-client remote procedure calls (RPC) that call JavaScript functions in client browsers (and other client platforms) from server-side .NET code. SignalR also includes an API for connection management such as connect and disconnect events, and grouping connections. For more information, see the Introduction to SignalR.
