Keeping User Logged in...Checked - but reopen later and not automatically authenticated

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

I don't know if I'm having this issue because I'm still developing my website application on my localhost, but when I go to log in with my testing account into my website application, and I check the checkbox on the Login control to remember this user for next login, it doesn't always work.  For instance, if I log in that way, the next 30 minutes or so of just sitting there and testing, when I view it in the browser it does keep me logged in.  But if I shut down VWD or step away from the computer for an extended amount of time, and then I go to view in browser it doesn't remember me as a logged in user and reverts to anonymous actions.

Is this normal in the localhost development, or do I need to make some sort of configuration change so that when a user logs in and checks the "remember me" check box, it ALWAYS automatically logs them in regardless of time, unless they explicitly "log out".

Thanks in advance! :)

How to automatically Authenticate User on External Site once Authenticated on SharePoint Site

  

We analyzing the implementations approach, for a scenario.

  1. External Site: To log-in to external site which has its own user store and is hosted on different domain. So user has to provide his user id and password for logging in to external site like e.g.  DOMAIN1\UserName & Password

  1. SharePoint Site: This site is hosted on different domain other than DOMAIN1 and has got windows/forms authentication. So the user to login to SharePoint site has to provide SharePoint site Credentials DOMAIN2\UserName & Password.
  2. SharePoint Web Part which shows external site in IFrame and allows user to perform CURD operation once the user is authenticated in external site.


What we want is once user login to SharePoint site using (Forms/Windows) authentication, he should be automatically authenticated in External Site (using some mechanism) the logged in user credentials are picked up from some store based on his sharepoint username and system authenticates the user on external site.

Any pointers to code/blogs/articles would be really helpful.

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--%>


How to make "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user" in vb code behind

  


I need to insert a declaration in the codebehind function below that will make the variable "UserId" equal to the "logged-in user". In what way do I need to change the code below (elsewhere in the project, I successfully make reference to basically the same code and make the UserId equal to logged-in user by using this handler expression inside an image control: ImageUrl ='<%# Eval("UserId","Image.aspx?UserId={0}")%>'...But in the case below, the function is not fired by this expression, but rather by CustomValidator). Thanks very much.

 

Sub ValidateImage(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs)

        If Request.QueryString("UserId") IsNot Nothing Then

WCF Service stops after throwing a unhandled exception :no user is logged on.

  
Hi All,       I have written a WCF service which is hosted as a Managed windows service. I consume this service in a web application. The service is built using a httpBasicBinding and security Mode ="none". I'm now getting the following exception, after which the service stops  "An unhandled exception ('System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception') occurred in CMMonitorService.exe [1812]. Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error: Debugger could not be started because no user is logged on." I had tried changing the security mode to Transport/Message. with windows credential then I get a access to the path denied error. Can anyone provide hint on what am I missing and what would be the appropriate security mode and client credential to use along with basichttpBinding?

FBA users (ldap provider) don't have any user profile info when logged in.... what am I doing wrong

  
Sharepoint 2010, Claims authentication, FBA using ldap membership provider and role provider against Active Directory.  User profiles all imported just fine -- used the LDAP FBA provider hitting Active Directory to do so too.  whenever an FBA user logs in, it doesn't seem like sharepoint is picking up any user attributes.  targeted audiences don't work and MY SETTINGS is blank other than account and name.  If the same user logs in but through Active Directory, everything works just fine... targeted audiences, etc. Am I doing something wrong or can I not use the LDAP provider to authenticate to AD and also use the user profiles from Sharepoint?  GRRRRR.  All this to get around the Windows Authentication popup so I can customize a better looking logon experience.  Help?

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
