Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Have there been any changes to SharePoint 2010 in terms of enabling LiveID authentication for a SharePoint site?If not, is http://spwla.codeplex.com/ still the most applicable resource for enabling this functionality?Any other links or recommendations (particularly instructions applicable to someone on the IT Pro side) would be quite welcome.Thanks all.Laura E.

Using ONLY User Certificates for SharePoint 2010 Authentication/Authorization

  Hello, I am relatively new to SharePoint, and was wondering how I can accomplish using only user certificates to authenticate (and eventually authorize) access to the SharePoint 2010 Server (not just IIS). My Environment currently looks like this:  - SharePoint is SSL-enabled - User Browser Certificates (generated using OpenSSL) successfully authenticate to the IIS Server - SharePoint uses Basic Authentication (user/password based on AD credentials) I need to: - Authenticate the user to SharePoint using the User Certificate from my browser (in other words, no password authentication to access the SharePoint website, but use the certificate that was used by iis to be able to log into SharePoint) I am assuming I must use some sort of claims-based authentication.  Ideally, I would like to use ONLY the certification itself as a source of Authorized Repository for authentication. However, I am also open to having the user certificate be linked to Active Directory users as well.  I have done some research on this but am still lost as to how to approach this problem. Is there anyone that has done this or can assist me in getting this to work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!  

Best way to implement authentication and authorization for a sharepoint 2010 website.

Hi I come across different authentication methods in Sharepoint 2010. The sharepoint website we are develpoing as of now is Intranet. Later we are planning to move it to Internet(Public) site. What will be the best way to implement authentication and authorization for our website. If windows authentication(Classic mode authentication) is default for a sharepoint website (2010) , I have a few questions ragarding windows authentication. 1) In case of windows authentication, where should we maintain  users? 2) In case of windows authentication, how are the users created? 3) In case of windows authentication, how can I perform authorization.   If we want to use FBA(Form based authentication) in sharepoint 2010, I have a few questions ragarding FBA in sharepoint 2010. 1) In case of FBA(using Claim based authentication) , if we want to use custom database(where we are storing user details and  roles) rather than bulitin SQL membership  provider, how can we achieve this? Can anyone provide some useful resources to implement authentication(Windows or FBA or dual) and authorization for a sharepoint 2010 website with sample code? Please reply ASAP. Thanks & Regards Mahendra Babu

SharePoint 2010 Claims Based Authentication - anonymous site is prompting for CBA auth when opening

Hi, I have CBA setup successfully on my sites.  One site is setup for anonymous access and I have disabled "client integration" on that web application. I have a list of MS Office documents on a wiki.  When I click on one I am asked to either save or open or cancel.  Saving works fine but when I choose open, it launches the associated MS Office app.  I am then prompted for a login from CBA.  I can click cancel and the logon screen appears again.  After clicking cancel the 2nd time the document appears in the MS Office app, Word in this case. My question is how do I prevent my users from being prompted for a CBA login when clicking on these files and opening them in the native app on their machine?      --TR

Cannot Login with Forms Based Authentication to SharePoint 2010 - Issue with the SecurityTokenServic

Please be advised I have followed the steps on http://donalconlon.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/configuring-forms-base-authentication-for-sharepoint-2010-using-iis7/. I have tried to fix the following issue for a week using different farms and SharePoint 2010 installations, however I am getting the following error when trying to authenticate using Forms Based into a Claims site: Cannot get Membership Provider with name FBARoleProvider The membership provider for this process was not properly configured. You must configure the membership provider in the .config file for every SharePoint process. 1. I am certain the membership provider is configured in the SecurityTokenServiceApplication webservice as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using the SecurityTokenServiceApplication website. 2. I am certain that membership provider is configured in the both the Claims Web Application and Central Admin as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using their websites. 3. I know the issue is the SecurityTokenServiceApplication service as I had to set <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" /> to get the error above. 4. I can log into the Claims Based Application using windows authentication, however I am unable to see the users on the people picker despite that I can see them from the application's site on IIS

Forms Based Authentication in SharePoint 2010



I'm trying to figure out how to setup FBA in SharePoint 2010.  I know that FBA is now just a subset of Claims Based Authentication, but I'm confused by some of the different approaches that I've seen on some technet blogs:



Having seen the two, one doesn't setup a SQL while one does.  Both are vague in the user account that is used to manage the FBA users.  I'd like to get some clarification if that's possible.  Thanks in advance!

Yahoo - Google Apps Email Authentication in SharePoint 2010


There is idea about the use of the Form Based Authentication by the Google Apps Email ID.

Like I am employee of the ABC company which has Google Apps and Member of the Developer Team

so My ID is kashyap@abc.com in Google Apps.

So Is it possible to authenticate coming user to site with the ABC's Employee via Google Apps?

We can also think about oAuth Authentication.

How can we configure the authentication?

I need Ideas and suggetions

Thank You

SharePoint 2010 AD/Claim-based authentication URL.



I have setup my SharePoint 2010 web application to support both Windows AD and ADFS 2.0 authentication, the top site URL is: https://myserver.contoso.com

Every time I access the URL, it asks me to choose which credentials I want to use: AD or Claim, then get access to the SharePoint site - it works fine.

My question is about: can I tell which credentials to use in the URL request? i.e.: https://myserver.contoso.com&credential=Windows to use Windows AD authentication;

or https://myserver.contoso.com&credential=ADFS to use ADFS authentication?

SharePoint 2010 & Client Certificate Authentication



we have upgraded our WSS 3.2 installation to Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and have trouble with authentication over client certificates (works perfect with WSS 3.2).

You can reproduce this with a fresh install of SharePoint Foundation 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2. Create an application and set in IIS authentication to Client Certificates. Then create a site with one document library and upload at least two documents. Then check all items in list view and try to delete this documents over delete-button in ribbon (not over context menu). At this point i get a javascript error:

Message: Object expected
Line: 2
Char: 20732
Code: 0
URI: https://XXXX/_layouts/inplview.js?rev=AohvE9XEf%2FI78tuaw1TGAA%3D%3D

I found following HTTP 500 error in IIS-Log:

2010-05-21 13:20:01 POST /_vti_bin/client.svc/ProcessQuery - 443 XXXX\XXX 192.168.XXX.XXX Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+8.0;+Windows+NT+6.1;+WOW64;+Trident/4.0;+SLCC2;+.NET+CLR+2.0.50727;+.NET+CLR+3.5.30729;+.NET+CLR+3.0.30729;+InfoPath.2;+.NET4.0C;+.NET4.0E) 500 0 0 188

If i switch authentication in IIS to Windows Authentication i get no error (HTTP Status Code = 200).

Form based authentication on current web application SharePoint 2010



I have question about creating form based authentication. I want to have different authentication in the same web application in the same time. For now I have windows authentication and I want to extend it to Form base authentication. I follow procedure on link http://blog.summitcloud.com/2009/11/forms-based-authentication-sharepoint-2010-fb/ step by step but it doesn't work. Also when I try to change authentication in Central administration to Forms it is not possible because that option is disable. Is there any setup for overcome this issue.

Thank in advice.


SharePoint 2010 & SQL Authentication

I'm trying to build a SharePoint 2010 farm in DMZ with SQL in the main network and no trust (so I can't use windows authentication to access the database).  I'm trying to configure the farm with SQL authentication using PowerShell.  The command creates the database and then fails with a null reference:

Logged in Username in Sharepoint 2010 Forms Based Authentication



When using forms based authentication in Sharepoint 2010, suppose user is logged in with username "admin" and our custom membership provider name is "FBAProvider"... After logging in with this account, logged in user name is displayed like "i:0#.|FBAProvider|admin". How can make it display as it should be like just "admin"?

Thanks in advance,


Question about SharePoint Designer 2010 and Basic Authentication


I am trying to connect to an Office SharePoint Server 2010 on an external domain that is using Basic Authentication ... it won't prompt me for a username/password and doesn't do anything when I try to connect (even if I have a browser already logged in). If I switch it back to NTLM is opens fine and I can access the site.

Locally on our domain, if I try to access a server using Basic Authentication I get an error on the URL telling me 'The folder name is not valid'.

Any ideas on how to get around this would be greatly appreciated.
