Form based authentication on current web application SharePoint 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I have question about creating form based authentication. I want to have different authentication in the same web application in the same time. For now I have windows authentication and I want to extend it to Form base authentication. I follow procedure on link http://blog.summitcloud.com/2009/11/forms-based-authentication-sharepoint-2010-fb/ step by step but it doesn't work. Also when I try to change authentication in Central administration to Forms it is not possible because that option is disable. Is there any setup for overcome this issue.

Thank in advice.

Form based authentication Sharepoint 2007 gets redirected to login page

Hi We have sharepoint 2007 site deployed on Windows server 2008, IIS 7.0.  We extended the web application to enable forms based authentication referring to link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136(office.12).aspx#MOSS2007FBAPart1_Intro, we selected Kerberos instead of NTLM, behavior is like, when user tries to login into the site using OOB login.aspx, user again gets redirected to the login page. We tried to extend the web application again but this time we selected NTLM, but this time farm account (also is application pool identity) is not able login and exhibits same behavior as above, but for other users we are able to login. Has anyone come across this behavior? can anyone please guide me in correct the behavior? Regards, RK  Radhakrishna

SharePoint 2010 Claims Based Authentication - anonymous site is prompting for CBA auth when opening

Hi, I have CBA setup successfully on my sites.  One site is setup for anonymous access and I have disabled "client integration" on that web application. I have a list of MS Office documents on a wiki.  When I click on one I am asked to either save or open or cancel.  Saving works fine but when I choose open, it launches the associated MS Office app.  I am then prompted for a login from CBA.  I can click cancel and the logon screen appears again.  After clicking cancel the 2nd time the document appears in the MS Office app, Word in this case. My question is how do I prevent my users from being prompted for a CBA login when clicking on these files and opening them in the native app on their machine?      --TR

Hello there! For the life of me, i can't figure out why SharePoint keeps putting the phrase "i:0#.w|" infront of everyones username / accounts. Both on mysite and portal sites. A quick bing search revelaed that i am not the only one: http://fangdahai.blogspot.com/2010/06/i0w-is-still-there-in-sharepoint-2010.html. Anyone have a solution to fix this annoying problem? Thanks!

Cannot Login with Forms Based Authentication to SharePoint 2010 - Issue with the SecurityTokenServic

Please be advised I have followed the steps on http://donalconlon.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/configuring-forms-base-authentication-for-sharepoint-2010-using-iis7/. I have tried to fix the following issue for a week using different farms and SharePoint 2010 installations, however I am getting the following error when trying to authenticate using Forms Based into a Claims site: Cannot get Membership Provider with name FBARoleProvider The membership provider for this process was not properly configured. You must configure the membership provider in the .config file for every SharePoint process. 1. I am certain the membership provider is configured in the SecurityTokenServiceApplication webservice as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using the SecurityTokenServiceApplication website. 2. I am certain that membership provider is configured in the both the Claims Web Application and Central Admin as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using their websites. 3. I know the issue is the SecurityTokenServiceApplication service as I had to set <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" /> to get the error above. 4. I can log into the Claims Based Application using windows authentication, however I am unable to see the users on the people picker despite that I can see them from the application's site on IIS

Forms Based Authentication in SharePoint 2010



I'm trying to figure out how to setup FBA in SharePoint 2010.  I know that FBA is now just a subset of Claims Based Authentication, but I'm confused by some of the different approaches that I've seen on some technet blogs:



Having seen the two, one doesn't setup a SQL while one does.  Both are vague in the user account that is used to manage the FBA users.  I'd like to get some clarification if that's possible.  Thanks in advance!

Is SharePoint and Access 2010 the right platform for subscription based web application?



I posted a similar question in the Access Form and the MVP's there suggested I post a follow up here, to clarify the SharePoint issue. 

My Question: is SharePoint and Access 2010 a good platform, or can it do what I need?

The Scenario:

I currently have a client/server app built in Access 2002 with many clients in a single industry. My clients are very mobile and would like to be able to do their work in the app anywhere, not just while connected to the office network. Likewise, a large percentage in that industry have Macs (I've used Windows in Parallels or Fusion for these clients but it's not a smooth process, in a lot of 'connectivity' ways). My clients are asking, and my competition already has, web based applications. I very much need to get my app on the web. Along with that, I need to set it up as a monthly subscription based application.


So I'm hoping Access and SharePoint can do this. I don't know ASP or PHP or SQL so it'd be a steep learning curve if I have to go that route. I don't know much about SharePoint but have watched videos about using it for Access Web databases as well as RichClient/SharePoint Lists. 

It's possible I could have over 1000 clients, each of which will have a few thousand records in the main few tables (SP Lists). Each client could also have several users l

SharePoint 2010 AD/Claim-based authentication URL.



I have setup my SharePoint 2010 web application to support both Windows AD and ADFS 2.0 authentication, the top site URL is: https://myserver.contoso.com

Every time I access the URL, it asks me to choose which credentials I want to use: AD or Claim, then get access to the SharePoint site - it works fine.

My question is about: can I tell which credentials to use in the URL request? i.e.: https://myserver.contoso.com&credential=Windows to use Windows AD authentication;

or https://myserver.contoso.com&credential=ADFS to use ADFS authentication?

Accessing SharePoint 2010 with WinRM on Claims-based web application


I am trying to connect to sharepoint remotely using powershell. Things work okay when connecting to a windows authentication web application. But when i try connecting to a claims based web application, i get access denied messages. I seem to get access to the SPWeb, but when i try to access properties on the web, it errors. I think CredSSP is setup correctly (as the windows web application works). The username i am using is in the format domain\username, not sure if the claims based format needs something different i:0#.w|domain\username

Logged in Username in Sharepoint 2010 Forms Based Authentication



When using forms based authentication in Sharepoint 2010, suppose user is logged in with username "admin" and our custom membership provider name is "FBAProvider"...

Form based authentication in sharepoint 2007


Hi ,

I have implemented form based authentication(LDAP) on SharePoint site. everything working fine.But we are not able to resolve the user with display name for first time.(User are stored in active directory.)

Like if i want to give an access to user over site, we need to provide usename or email address. once it will be part of site, if i want to add that particular user in any other group of the site then display name would work fine.

Issue is only with first time adding a user on site with display name.

my observation is, once the user first time added, sharepoint keeps the profile entry in content database(UserInfo Table). so that next time, that table is reffered. thats why second time, display name will be resolved with people picker.

Please provide some help.
