Membership.GetUser() issues

HI all, I've got a claims based SharePoint 2010 environment configured.  I'm able to register new users, login etc.  I'm now trying to get more detail from the current logged in user and for this, I understand, I need to use the MembershipUser, Membership and MembershipUserCollection classes. When I instantiate the MembershipUserCollection class and traverse the users, all works fine, but as soon as I try to create an object from the currently logged in users, I get an error noting "method or object not implemented". Here is my code: MembershipUser user = Membership.GetUser(strCurrentIdentity);  <!-- Exception on this line. strCurrentUser = user.UserName; ps.  Let's assume I have trim the "strCurrentIdentity" down to only have the username portion in it.  http://technicallead.wordpress.com/

error with Membership.GetUser(NewUserWizard.UserName)


on the third line of code I get message that "NewUserWizard" is not declared.  How can I remedy this?

Protected Sub CreateUserWizard1_CreatedUser(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CreateUserWizard1.CreatedUser
        ' Get the UserId of the just-added user
        Dim newUser As MembershipUser = Membership.GetUser(NewUserWizard.UserName)
        Dim newUserId As Guid = CType(newUser.ProviderUserKey, Guid)

        ' Insert a new record into UserProfiles
        Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ASPNETDBConnectionString").ConnectionString()
        Dim insertSql As String = "INSERT INTO UserProfiles(UserId, HomeTown, HomepageUrl," & _
            "Signature) VALUES(@UserId, @HomeTown, @HomepageUrl, @Signature)"

        Using myConnection As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
            Dim myCommand As New SqlCommand(insertSql, myConnection)
            myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@UserId", newUserId)
            myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@HomeTown", DBNull.Value)

            myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@HomepageUrl", DBNull.Value)
            myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Signature", DBNull.Value)

Membership.GetUser() using FireFox browser


I am finishing up my asp.net web application targeting .net 4.0. I am using VS2010.

I have deployed my application to a host server and now I am testing with multiple different browsers.

The first issue I ran into comes down to the following code:

            MembershipUser currentUser = Membership.GetUser();
            if (currentUser != null)

If I use IE, login and click something that causes the above code to execute then currentUser is NOT null. However doing the exact same steps in FireFox currentUser is null, even though I know I am logged in as my name and other indications on the webpage confirms I am.

Anyone have any ideas why this would be? 





Since originally posting this thread I have done more testing.

I placed a test button on a random page and the button click will update a label on that page indicating if the currentUser is null or not. This button works both in IE and in FireFox. Also both running locally and running on the host server.


So now I am looking at what is different about the one place it appears not to work so let me try to make this clear.

I use a component called Uploadify to upload images into a database. That componen

Membership.GetUser().UserName On Login Page



I have an Employee class in my App_Code folder.  On my login page I am trying to create an Employee using the asp.net username as a parameter in my Employee constructor.

 I have tried creating the employee in the page load event when it is a post back.  I have tried doing it in the Login1_LoggedIn event.  For some reason I cannot pull the username in either one of these places, but if I redirect after logging in and do the same thing on another page, it works.

How can I get it done on the login page?


  Dim em As Employee

        em = New Employee(CInt(Membership.GetUser().UserName))


Multiple membership providers



In my web.config I have:

        <add name="ADProvider1"
        <add name="ADProvider2"

If I just have ADProvider1 it works, when I add ADProvider2, even though for testing I only use ADProvider1 I get an error: "Unable to establish secure connection with the server"

Am I adding the second provider to the membership section incorrectly?



Replacement options for Membership


Hi everyone,
     I tried to use Microsoft's Membership option for signing up new users and authenticating them on subsequent pages, but it has not worked very well. The biggest issue has been with the REMEMBER ME function. With this checked, I am randomly logged out in the middle of some functions and some pages always show me as not authenticated, while others properly show me as authenticated. I built a site based on VB.
I was wondering what other people are using ro register users and monitor authentication and also if anyone has had better experiences with other solutions.

Pass ASP.NET membership identity object across domain?


I am trying to figure a way to SSO with ASP.NET membership and role model.

I can implement custom membership provider which consume web services hosting on a server.

With encryption of data. No problem.

But my question is, If I sign on a website with my provider, got my identity object on that application,

could I pass it to another website on another domain which use the same provider and by doing so, do not need to login again?

If this is possible, I am going to implement this solution. Please tell me what's your take on this.

Membership Search user


Is there a membership function to search a username Like this:   LIKE '%UserName%' ?

This is not working.

MembershipUser User = Membership.GetUser("%" + TextBox1.Text + "%");

Thank you.

Membership Provider Conn String


Hello. I've bee successfully using the Asp.Net Membership Provider in my VB.Net 3.5/SQL 2005 web app for a year now (Site A). However, I've added 2 new sites (B and C) (both with their own DB) and now I see a problem. It looks like users that get created for sites B and C also get created in site A. Roles that I create for B and C only get created in A. I think it is a conn string problem.

When I created A, I adde the conn string to my machine.config (not sure why I did this or if it is even needed)...


         <add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Data Source=VS689\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=SiteA;USER ID=sa;PASSWORD=123456"/>


                <add name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=blahblah" connectionStringName="LocalSqlS

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?

Membership provider for MS Access in VB


Hi all,

Over the past few weeks I've been attempting to convert the readily available C# code for the Membership Provider etc whilst working with MS Access. I'm fairly experienced with VB unlike C# and have ran AccessMembershipProvider.cs, AccessConnectionHelper.cs and so on through 3 different converters. All of which have given a varying degree of errors, all of which I've fixed, either by ever so slightly re-writing the logic or in the Cryptographic case finding a working translation.

This evening I have fixed all of the errors from all of the now converted VB files (which I was pretty pleased about as you can imagine), I then created a simple login page to test this out, added a new user to the system and tried to login to find out I'm being told the username or password is wrong.

Just to clarify, the converters all had an error or two or even more in some cases which I've bypassed but now I can't login - at all!!

Any initial suggestions?

Finally I've written reams of code over the years and am really stumped on this one, has knowone actually successfully converted these files from C# to VB and actually got it working?? I'm not looking for someone to send me there hard work but I am almost at the point of not wanting to bother with it anymore and I just can't believe that it's not out there to download

Who Goes There?: Upgrade Your Site's Authentication with the New ASP.NET 2.0 Membership API


Here Dino Esposito and Andrea Saltarello cover the plumbing of the Membership API and its inherently extensible nature, based on pluggable providers. To demonstrate the features, they take an existing ASP.NET 1.x authentication mechanism and port it to ASP.NET 2.0, exposing the legacy authentication mechanism through the new Membership API.

How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?


I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?


Extending Role/Membership


Given an organization site, here is what we need to accomplish:

  1. Administer Role/Membership completely on specific pages of the remotely hosted site instead of using a local site within Visual Studio.
  2. Create and add region group, city group or other groups in addition to the basic user group. How can the new groups be stored and administered?
  3. After users login the 1st time, their Role/Membership are saved so that they will be redirected to their own designated page upon future login. Are we going to use cookies and/or tables to store related data?

Please advise how to best implement the above with samples and/or tutorials.

Thanks much in advance.
