Multiple membership providers



In my web.config I have:

        <add name="ADProvider1"
        <add name="ADProvider2"

If I just have ADProvider1 it works, when I add ADProvider2, even though for testing I only use ADProvider1 I get an error: "Unable to establish secure connection with the server"

Am I adding the second provider to the membership section incorrectly?



FileUpload Control with membership and roles


Hi Everyone!

I'm pretty new to development using Microsoft technologies.

I'm trying to build a portal kind of an application in asp.net, in which one of the functionality is letting people log in and upload their documents. The upload page is only accessible to registered users of the portal.


I would like to track the user uploaded files according to their userIds.

Is it possible to use the FileUpload Control and C# to fetch the current user id, create a directory with the same name(as that of userID) in the file system and upload the files( multiple file upload, if necessary) into it?

Also another admin page would have to be able to see the list of files uploaded by the specific user and download it if necessary.

Could anyone help me with this?

I'm also expecting alternate solutions to the problem.

Awaiting a response.

Thanks in advance 


ASP.NET 5.0: Multiple logins and login types in default ASP.NET membership provider

What do you think about an ability of having multiple logins and login types to be attached to the same user? Let me explain this by showing how database schema can be re-factored to support this model:Remove [Password], [PasswordSalt] columns from [Users] database tableAdd [Logins] table with one-to-many relationship between [Users] and [Logins] tablesThis will allow one user to have multiple credentials attached to his or her account of different types such as Username&Password, Windows Live ID, Open ID from different providersYou will be able to restrict allowed login types and OpenID providers in web.config So.. do you think it is a good idea to add support of this model into ASP.NET 4.5/5.0 membership service?http://aspnet.codeplex.com/workitem/7149

Check membership roles

Hello All, I have the following, for an webapplication I user membership roles. Users are added or removed from a role. I have two things i am wondering how to accomplish.   The first: New or exisiting users have assigned roles for their accounts. This roles can be selected or deselected from a checkbox (when the users is created or edited) . I want to build some routine or function to see if a users is part of a role or if he is assigned a new role. When, in edit mode, a users is part of a role the particular checkbox has to be checked, or if he isn't unchecked. Of course I want to call a function to do that so I don;t have to write the if then statement for all roles, but just one time. I think this should be a public function to call from all pages within the appication, but whatever i try, it doesnt work.  I have written a function in a apart classfile called functions.vb. But the roles syntax isn't recognized. Herby the function{Public Function CheckMembership(ByVal GroupName As Boolean, ByVal User As String, ByVal Group As String) As Integer If GroupName = True Then If Not Roles.IsUserInRole(User, Group) Then Roles.AddUserToRole(User, Group) ElseIf GroupName = False Then If Roles.IsUserInRole(User, Group) Then Roles.RemoveUserFromRole(User, Group)

Entities Data Models with multiple Categories using a membership table

(Using SQL Server 2008 and ASP.NET MVC2) I have a simple business table and a category table. I have a 3rd table to map business to category, a many-to-many relationship. the Map table contains a BusinessID and CategoryID. I'm lost as to how I can load the categories into my Business View Model using the entities model.Without incorporating categories, my code looks like this: var businessList = from b in entitiesDB.Businesses select new Models.BusinessViewModel { BusinessID = b.BusinessID, Name = b.Name } with Business View Model defined as: public class BusinessViewModel { [ScaffoldColumn(false)] public Guid BusinessID { get; set; } public string Name { get; set; } public List<Models.CategoryViewModel> Categories { get; set; } } but if i want to populate the Categories with the mapped categories, how would one do that?Thanks in advance for any help!

how to customize asp.net membership roles to create separate member area ?


I am using asp.net membership for all the users and roles, right now i have a website on which i have created 2 roles "admin" and "member"

in this website i create accounts, so all the accounts are separated/distinguished by account name

now i was to add one more role "accountholders" and i want to add this role in such a way that an account holder will be able to see his / her account's stuff ...

i as admin will be creating username and password for accountholders and i will provide them their login credentials so that they can login and see what's in their account.

My idea of creating account is that, the accounts that i have in my database will be the key, so when i will create username for particular account , in the create user wizard i should have a drop downmenu will all the accounts name. so the user that i am creating will be linked on that account only ..

how to accoplish this ? please guide me in a right direction...

profiles, membership and roles


Dear All,

Can someone help me with creating a custom profile, membership and role page something like this:


I'm trying to edit this as my requirment but I can't make it work. I will just need to add detailview to view the entire profile since it's to long for the gridview to handle.

Getting multiple counts ordered by Groups with a TOP X thrown in as well!


Hi, I have a result set (it's from multiple tables), that outputs the following values thus:

Department Statement Rating

IT Factor X 5

IT Factor Y 4

IT Factor X 3

SALES Factor Y 5

IT Factor X 4


Now, what I want to get out of this is a dataset detailing per department which had the highest number of records for a given statement (e.g. factor x) with the avergage.  However I don;t want to output all of them, just the highest.


So, the output would be something like:

Department Top Statement TotalCount  AvgRating

IT Factor X 3 4

SALES Factor Y

Multiple Role Membership



I need to populate a dropdown list with users who match certain role criteria. For example, if I have the following roles: Manager, Employee, Supervisor I would like to populate the list with only the Manager and Employee roles. Some individuals have multiple roles and they should be excluded if they also have the Supervisor role as illustrated below:

Name: A , Role(s): Manager, Employee, Supervisor

Name: B, Role(s): Employee

Name: C, Role(s): Manager, Employee

The final list should only contain names B & C.

I can use Roles.GetUsersInRole("Employee") but I am not sure if this is efficient or not.

thanks in advance,

How to use ASP.NET's Membership, Roles etc. in asp.net 4.0?


Good morning everybody.

I want to practise ASP.NET Authentication, and Authorization features in Visual Studio 2010.

I wanted to store user account information NOT IN THE aspnet db, but in a SEPARATE database. Hence, I have tried to use aspnet_regiis tool at visual studio command prompt. I am not presenting with wizard type window. Without wizard, I don't know how to store user information in a separate database otherthan aspnet db.

Can anybody please suggest any solution for this.

Also, one more thing:

It looks like lot of features have been changed in Visual Studio 2010 to work with Forms Authentication. If it is really changed, can anybody please suggest me the better resources to learn on the web?

Thansk in advance,
Ashok kumar.

C# ListView groups and subItems. Multiple rows? SubItems as 2d array?


I am attempting to have multiple rows in one column associated with 1 ListViewItem.

I am pulling the data from an XML file with XQuery.  I am able to iterate over the multiple elements using:

listItem.Group = listView1.Groups["phone"];

var g = q.Elements("phone");//data pulled from query

 foreach( var p in g )


string phone_num = p.Value;




I have also tried:

 listItem.SubItems.Add(new ListViewItem.ListViewSubItem(listItem, phone_num));


I am attempting output similar to:

                        234-5677         -

Jane Smith        345-6787      blahN

Thanks in advance for any help.
