I have the following implementation and I'm sure there is an easy way to do what I want to do but I can't figure it out.
1. I use forms based authentication to authenticate to my site
2. I use active directory to authenticate the users
3. I use the Allow Users="xxx" tag to authorize the users limited to the list that can access my site. (e.g.. even though Mary is an AD user she can't access my site unless I put her credentials in the allow users tag in the web.config file)
All is working well but I want to move the users access list (e.g.. <allow users="john" />" from the web.config to a database table so that I can create a user maintenance page for my admins to add and delete user access. For the life of me I can't figure out how to do this and I can't seem to find an article on it either. I'm sure I'm just not looking for the right thing, so help is greatly appreciated.
Here is my web.config file..
<add name="DBConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=PRIMSRV;Initial Catalog=MAINDB;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=svc.Test;Password=password
