I've had a look through the forums but I couln't find a concrete answer - I found some things that point me in the right direction but I would like to just ask for some clarification.
My requirements are as follows:
I have an external system, with an API that allows me to log in a user, and returns whether or not it was successful. This can only be done through the API, it can not be done with a direct DB connection.
I want to create a site that can only be accessed by someone who has a login to this external system.
Through the site they will only be able to log-in, there will be no possibility to change password etc, this is all done in the external system by an admin.
I like the ASP membership system, and the way it works with anonymous and member views and would like to continue to use it. My question is, how do I do this? Do I create a custom membership provider that overrides all the methods of the usual membership provider? And how will the fact that all I actually want to do is allow the user to login affect things? There will be no ability to change details etc.
Thanking you in advance, and sorry if my question is a bit general or has already been covered in detail before.
