Forms Based Authentication in SharePoint 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


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!

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

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,

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

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?

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this?
