How to get information of the authenticated user

  
Hello all,You cannot vote on your own post

I have a web application on IIS that will authenticate using windows authentication (Active Directory). So when they access the application http://iisserver/webappname/ it ask for username pwd and domain. (currently working)

How can I get information of the authenticated user in the web app through c#?
I use "Page.User.Identity.Name" but it helps me only with the name. Is there anyway to get more properties of the user(like organizational unit for example) or group ?

Thank you


Advanced Basics: Remembering User Information in Visual Basic .NET

  

Many applications need to store user-specific settings to be persisted between sessions. But how do you go about saving and restoring these settings in your Microsoft® . NET Framework-based application? It's not all that easy to find the correct answer.

dynamically change html code when user is authenticated

  

So I have a fairly simple web site which allows an Administrator to edit some data in a database which is displayed on some web pages.


The main navigation on the site is shown in the code snippet below. The Admin link goes to a Login.aspx which allows the Administrator to log in - once authenticated they get sent to the data edit page.

So my question is, how could I dynamically add a link to the data edit page in the <ul> list below once the user is authenticated ?

This would allow the authenticated user to see links to the secure pages in the main navigation bar.


<%--Top Navigation Menu --%>
<div id="topMenu">
<ul>
<li><a href="default.aspx">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="introduction.aspx">Introduction</a></li>
<li><a href="curriculum.aspx">Curriculum</a></li>
<li><a href="times.aspx">Times & Fees</a></li>
<li><a href="staff.aspx">Staff</a></li>
<li><a href="login.aspx">Admin</a></li>
</ul>
</div><%--End of topMenu Container--%>
<div id="clear"></div><%--Floats items cleared End of Master Page--%>


Collecting extra information using Create User Wizard

  
 I am trying to collect extra information about a user when the user account is created using the Create User Wizard. This info will be stored in a new table in the standard ASP membership SQL database. I have read several books and loads of online tutorials on the subject and they all take different approaches and seem to make the process hard work. Is there any reason why I can't add an SQL datasource and a number of textboxes  to the wizard step, 'connect' the values from the textboxes to the Insert Parameters and then put an Insert Statement in a suitable event handler to cause the insert? If this is possible what would be the best (ie simplest) way to 'connect' the textboxes to the insert parameters?   Regards Andy

AutoLogin for authenticated user via LiveID in Sharepoint 2010 (Claims Based Authentication)

  
Hi,     Im working in integrating LiveID authentication in my Sharepoint site. Live id gives back a token of the user with which i created a dummy profile using MembershipProvider.CreateUser. Now i have to auto login the user with the profile i created, i mean i have to force login to my sharepoint site using the created dummy user details without asking the user to give username n password.Any suggestion will be a great help for me to proceed.   Thanks Saravanan Michael

How do I allow some .net pages to be used from a login page before the user is authenticated?

  
Ok, I have a .net homepage (viewable and useable to everyone) which is "login.aspx".  There is a header with a menu and three columns under that.  The header has a "home" button which will display a page (standings.aspx) with data from a gridview control which gets its data from an access db in a directory called Access_DB from the root level of the site. The next menu in the header is "Schedules", which uses the same db and a set of .aspx files (i.g. MondaySched.aspx, ThursdaySched.aspx, etc) to populate NFL schedules in various formats, and the last column "About" is just some html files.  All of this data is placed in an IFRAME in the middle column of the page.  The left column is where the login textboxes/submit button reside, the last column is just some html.I am using form level authentication as follows:<authentication mode="forms"><forms name="BTGAppSec" loginUrl="login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="30" path="/" /></authentication><authorization><deny users="?" /></authorization>The problem is when you go to the site and it tries to load the "standings.aspx" into the IFRAME on page load, it sees that as an unauthorized user and sends the IFRAME back to login.aspx.  So what you get is a &qu

User information list properties SP Foundation 2010

  
When trying to view properties of user information list in SPD 2010, I get the following error "SharePoint designer cannot display the content of this view (...)" I am logged in as administrator for both farm and site. I can view content of the list in a browser, but I cannot access the list as a lookup column. It works with WSS 3/SPD 2007 on another server.

claims authenticated (FBA) user cannot open a connection to our custom application database

  
We have designed a custom sharepoint site. This site uses a membership provider that I implemented, and the users are stored in our custom application database. These are the steps I follow to reproduce the error: 1. Browse to our site. Select Forms Authentication from the default.aspx selection. 2. Enter in a username from our DB table. This user I have configured as a site collection administrator. 3. Login to the site. The user is authenticated by our membership provider and allowed access (ValidateUser returns true) 4. Browse to a page that attempts to connect to the custom app DB. 5. I get the following error when the page attempts to open a connection to our DB: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server NOTES: The code that opens the DB connection is running with SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges. Our application pool account has access to the database. My user can connect to the database fine as well as the user that our  application pool is running as. I have validated the connection string that is being used in the debugger, and that is correct.

Can an authenticated user add items to a list anonymously?

  
I have a requirement to allow authenticated users to post items to a list anonymously. The SharePoint site is not enabled to allow anonymous access, so all users will be authenticated. Given that every item that is created in a list will have a Creator, is it possible therefore to impersonate another user? e.g. create an "Anonymous" account and somehow force all new items in a particular list to be created by this account. Perhaps the best way would be to write a WebPart whose UI contains the fields required and then programatically creates the list item as another user (using SPUserToken to get an SPSite object)? If there's a way to do it without code, I'd definitely be interested... Thanks, Alex

What is the best way to store user specific information

  

Hello All,

What is the best way to keep track of user specific information?

I want to show information in querys etc based upon specific properties, for instance a users belongs to a dealer, and that dealer has an ID.

So is it a good way to store that dealer ID in a session variable or should I consider a other option to use this on multiple pages.

 

Does anyone have good thoughts about this?

thanks,

 

Peter

Update all Properties in the User Information List after restoring a site collection to a new domain

  

hi All

I moved a site collection (content db) from one domain to another. After the site collection was restored i ran the stsadm -o migrateuser -oldlogin -newlogin. The result was that the login id of the user in the source domain was replaced with the login in the destination domain.

However the rest of the properties in the User Information List (paricularly interested in the Email) was not updated.

How can i get all the properties in the User Information List with values in the new domain

Thanks in Advance

Regarding Editing the user profile Information in MOSS

  

Hi All,

            I have very interesting situation over here and unable to understand what is going on behind the scene. There are two senarios as follows

1) Production server that host the site restored from old WSS on the MOSS---- when i go to the Peoples and Group and click on the user name and then click on the edit profile I am presented with the from where i can edit the profile information but according to the theory this should not happen if MY Site is Enabled

2) Production server that host the fresh site on MOSS--- when i go to the Peoples and Group and click on the user name and then on the edit profile I am presented with the page that contains the domain name and user name means i cannot edit the profile as expected according to theory.

Both the server are two different WFE but has the same databse server. Please help me to solve this mistry.
