Manage Account Information for an Enterprise Application Definition

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hello, in this section (title of the post) are defined the users that will be able to log-in into the application. Though, it requires the user password when completing the registration. Maybe I haven't got this concept very clear, but:

Isn't the purpose of single sign-on to use sharepoint user/passwords data to log in automatically into the application?

Lets put it this way: I have a thousand users and I want them to access this 3rd party application through Sharepoint. According to what I've seen, I should enter those thousand users, one by one, through that interface? and know his/her password as well?

Help me,

Single Sign on - Manage settings for enterprise application definitions - Individual / Group



I am using Microsoft Single Sign On service in context to Sharepoint server 2007.

I want the external applications to use the single sign on service for authentication within a secure Enterprise portal environment.

Here the external application should be authenticated via single sign-on. But while configuring SSO in Share point central admin, it offers two methods of "Manage settings for enterprise application definitions" which is Individual and Group .

According to my requirements,

1. I need some set of users (may be a group of users) to make use of credential1 to authenticate the external application. so Group should be mapped to one common external credential1 .

2. I need rest of the users who does not belong to the above said user group should use individual external credentials mapped to Individual user .

I need both of these scenarios to be handles using a single Application definition created for my external application.

So suggest me an ideal way to achieve this mixed Individual and Group credential mapping in SSO

MVC + Frames in an enterprise web application


Hi people

I'm designing an enterprise web application interface based on an old system, and i planned to migrate the old frames layout to master page, but i noticed that if i use masterpages, the application users will be able to see the querystring or route path, and it could be a security issue.

What is the best way to avoid this? Using frames? Masterpages with iframes as content? Masterpages with all PartialViews loaded by jquery?




SqlServer - Windows Account to install Application from Gallery


Referring to this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/download-and-install-an-asp-net-application

I selected umbraco cms and got this wizard:

I already have Standard Sql Server 2005 on my machine which I wanted to us for above DB and not SqlExpress.

I did not remember "sa" account pwd nor I use explicitly any account to connect to my Sqlserver. I use Windows Authentication account i.e implicit authentication. So I created new account and gave all rights and used it in the above wizard and was able to install the database after some struggle.

My question is: What if I want to use my Windows Account to install the database above? Why the wizard don't have any option to use Windows Integrated Authentication?

Note: I can create the DB with external user I created, just looking specifics for using Windows Authentication for above installation.

Enterprise Library: Take Exception To Critical Errors With Custom Application Blocks


Enterprise Library is a collection of application functionality blocks that you can re-use in your application for common functionality you'd otherwise have to write again and again. Here Jay Hilyard explains how to use them.

Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 3


E nterprise applications can have a wide variety of data update requirements. Sometimes you need to save multiple rows of changes at once within a single transaction. Other times, the user must be allowed to enter multiple rows of data, send them to the database in a batch; and if a row or two fails, only the rows that succeeded should be committed and remain committed.

Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 2


Last month I explored the foundation of the Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block (DAAB) including how it all fits into an architecture (see Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 1).

Data Points: The Enterprise Library Data Access Application Block, Part 1


A solid data access later (DAL) can benefit an application by hiding redundant tasks, helping handle exceptions more gracefully, helping clean up resources more efficiently, and providing a layer of abstraction from the database.

Security: Unify the Role-Based Security Models for Enterprise and Application Domains with .NET


Role-based security allows administrators to assign access permissions to users based on the roles they play rather than on their individual identities. These privileges can be used to control access to objects and methods, and are easier to identify and maintain than user-based security. The .NET Framework provides two role-based security models, which are exposed as two namespaces: System.Enterprise-Services and System.Security.Permissions. Presented here is a comparison of the two options and a discussion of when each is the right choice. The author also demonstrates the process involved in setting up access security and discusses role memberships.

Book review: Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture

   Lately I finished reading the famous patterns book by Martin Fowler - Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. This book introduces and describes design patterns you will usually see when building enterprise applications. There are also examples for patterns and although they are simple and primitive they give you the idea how to implement or use specific patterns. If you are working on enterprise applications every day you will find this book very useful and I'm sure you will use it as manual. Yes, you can read this book as any other book and you can also use it as manual. In the end of this review you can find table of patterns with links to short introduction for each pattern. Are these patterns platform specific somehow? No, they are not. It doesn't matter what platform or language you are using. Of course, you must know your platform well because some of problems solved in this book maybe also already solved on platform you are working on. Don't try to push all available patterns to your application - use patterns of this book when you face problems that your tools doesn't solve or that your tools solve poorly. Of course, you can consult with this book if you are not sure how to implement one or another pattern in your application. My suggestion is to read this book with two other books (of course, there are more recommended books but le

BDC to BCS Application Definition Upgrade

I'm trying to perform an upgrade of a SharePoint 2007 environment to 2010. Our plan is to move to entirely new hardware and do a content database migration. In such a scenario, it seems that BDC application definitions are not upgraded as part of the process. Also, it seems that the 2007 app definition file format is not compatible with BCS. In an in-place upgrade I understand that these settings get migrated as part of the upgrade process. Is there any way to access the upgrade facility, either through a utility or even via the API to perform the conversion?   Thanks, DanDaniel Segan

Cannot find Manage services under Service Application of Central admin

We have Intranet solution based on SharePoint 2010 small farm. Somehow we don't see Manage services on server under the Service Applications in the central admin. Portal seem to work otherwise fine. When we opened the page to browser http://servername:14082/_admin/Server.aspx we received error: Access denied. We have tried to login with Admin, SP_Farm and SP_Admin user, but access denied every time. I checked who have Full user rights in the Central admin. It is SP_Admin Admins of the Sitecollection is SP_admin and Administrator. Why this happens?Kenny_I

Search Server Express 2010 - Access Denied when attempting to manage Search Service Application or P

I first noticed this error with the Search Service Application when I was no longer able to use the search portal, but have since noticed the issue with the PowerPoint Service Application.  When I navigate in Central Administration to either the "Farm Search Administration" or the "Manage service applications" pages and attempt to manage the "Search Service Application", I get this error: Error: Access Denied  Current User You are currently signed in as:  WHEELERS\MyUserName   Sign in as a different user    I have tried removing the service application and re-adding it, changing the application pool to running under an existing application pool as the farm administrator, as another application pool with the same identity as the primary web application, and as another application pool running under the SP-SearchService identity. The big recent change with SharePoint, aside from fixing the previous issue where I was incorrectly using CNAMEs with Kerberos, was to switch the main web application to claims authentication. That site correctly works with claims based authentication and Kerberos.

SSIS 2008 generates Registration information for this application needs to be updated - VSTA.exe

I am getting the following error in SQL Server 2008 R2 (build 10.50.1734) x86 platform BI Development Studio (BIDS) 9.0.30729.4462 with .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 in a Integration Services project. I have a package with a Data Flow task that contains a Script Component. I edit it and attempt to edit script and I get the following error: Registration information for this application needs to be updated. To update, log on as an administrator and run this command: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\VSTA.exe /HostID SSIS_ScriptComponent /setup About a minute later, another box displays with the following message Cannot show Visual Studio Tools for Applications editor. Additional information: The VSTA designer failed to load. “System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMExeption (0x80004005) Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component at VSTADTAProvider.Interop.VSTADTEProiderClass.GetDTE(String bysHostID, Uint32 dwTimeout). I execute the command above running as an administrator (there are no output results). BIDS displays the same symptoms. This happens on a Windows 7 Enterprise (I said Professional in an earlier but un-related post) workstation x86 platform. I get the error even if I create a new script component in a new data flow task in a new package. I also have VS 2010 Premium Edition (build 10.0.30319.1 RTMRel) i
