Centralizing Federated Services configuration with SO-Aware

Posted By: cibrax     Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 
Configuring a WCF service to use federated authentication in an organization is not something trivial as it requires some good knowledge of the available security settings, and more precisely, how to talk to the existing security token services with the right WCF bindings. This is something that usually only a few people in the organization knows how to do it right, so having a way to centralize all this configuration in a central location and have the rest of the developers to use becomes really important.     SO-Aware plays an important role in that sense, allowing the security experts to configure and store the bindings and behaviors that the organization will use to secure the services in the service repository. Developers can later reference, reuse and configure their services and client applications with those bindings from the repository using a simple OData API, or the WCF specific classes that SO-Aware also provides for configuring services and proxies. A WCF binding for configuring a service with federated authentication usually looks as follow, <customBinding><binding name="echoClaimsBinding"> <security authenticationMode="IssuedToken" messageSecurityVersion="WSSecurity11WSTrust13WSSecureConversation13WSSecurityPolicy12BasicSecurityProfile10" requireSecurityContextCancellation="false"> <issuedTokenPa

SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 - The configuration system has already been initialized

  
After correcting issues related to .NET 4.0, I am now encountering the error below. It occurs when I attempt to access one of the two web sites.

Performancepoint Services Configuration

  

Hi,

I have configured PerformancePoint Services(PPS) creating Secure Store Service and Unattended account.Generated key.Still while connecting to Analysis Services Server from Dashboard designer I am getting the following error: "This data source cannot be used because PerformancePoint Services is not configured correctly.Additional details have been logged for your administrator".

When I saw an event viewer it says:"The following data source cannot be used because PerformancePoint Services is not configured correctly" AND "PerformancePoint Services has not been configured with a valid Unattended Service Account.The setting is located in Manage service applications in Sharepoint Central Administration under the PerformancePoint Services management page".

I checked kerberos is configured correctly and working fine.

Any kind of help will be helpful.

Analysis Services Project under VS2008 not honoring Configuration Settings ?

  
I have a solution with SSRS and SSAS projects in it. Since we have 3 different environments I use VS Configurations for the individual settings. In each of these environments different groups have access to these cubes. However if I deploy the project the roles on the instances are always overwritten by the settings defined in the project. And it seems it is not possible to have different role settings that for each VS configuration. Am I missing something, it should somehow be possible to use the VS configurations to have different permissions per deployment environment?!

Installing and Uninstalling Services

  
Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

  
Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

  
I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

  
Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

  
Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:

.NET Web Services Tutorial

  
Visual Studio .NET makes .NET programming simple and accelerates the development process. It hides a lot of repetitive and configuration details from the user and improves productivity. However, sometimes you would like to program for .NET without using VS .NET; for example, you want to learn .NET framework programming and do not have access to VS .NET or you want to know what is actually going on under the hood.

Writing a Web Service in .NET using VS .NET very is easy. However, it is possible to write Web Services using the plain .NET SDK. I struggled a lot to write Web Services without VS .NET and tried to find help on the Net. There are a lot of examples available for writing Web Services using VS.NET, but you will rarely find any examples of writing Web Services using only the .NET SDK. This article is exactly for this purpose. It looks at Web Services development using the .NET SDK alone.

Why use Web services ?

  
Before the arrival of Web services, other technologies and architectures existed that met the functionality of today´s web service. Microsoft's version of these technologies, are called Component Object Model (COM), and subsequently Distributed COM (DCOM). WinDNA is a comprehensive term for implementing the above two distributed software development technologies. These technologies typically use the TCP/IP protocol.

CORBA - Common Object Request Broker is a competitor of COM, developed by a consortium of vendors called the Object Management Group. Although these technologies were a breakthrough in distributed computing and served such ends well for at least five years, there were many limitations. Concerning

Integrate Reporting Services with Silverlight and RIA Services

  
One of the most wanted future features in Silverlight is the possibility to create business reports using Reporting Services. In this article, I will show how to use the existing Reporting Services technology with Silverlight and RIA Services combination.

ASP.NET Configuration not opening

  

I recently upgraded to VS 2010 and downgraded to SQL Server 2005. Now when I go Website > ASP.NET Configuration nothing happens.

It's likely this has to do with the fact that when I was installing SQL Server I got the 'ASP.net Version Registration requirement' warning, as well as the 'Failed to find the ASP.net Version Registration requirement with MS IIS'.

Anyone know what I need to get ASP.NET Configuration working?

An endpoint configuration section for contract 'xxx' could not be loaded because more than one end

  

Hello,

I'm trying to test calling a webservice, I've found several free ones on http://webserviceshare.com, but none of them work for me.  Some of them give example calling code in C# which I've translated to VB.NET, they're typically just two to four lines, I don't think I've translated them incorrectly.

On that I've tried is US Zip Validator.  I added a Service Reference to http://www.webservicemart.com/uszip.asmx?WSDL, called ZipService.

I then call it like so:



            Dim myZipService As ZipService.USZipSoapClient = New ZipService.USZipSoapClient()
            Dim myCity As String = myZipService.ValidateZip("27707")


I get the following error on the first line of code:

"An endpoint configuration section for contract 'ZipService.USZipSoap' could not be loaded because more than one endpoint configuration for that contract was found. Please indicate the preferred endpoint configuration section by name."


A page with information on this web service (including C# source code) is at:

Reporting Services SQL 2005 .Net 4 compatibility?

  

I've been working on my first asp.net application and for the most part it's been pretty smooth.  Right now I'm having trouble getting reporting services working under SQL Server 2005.  I developed the site with Visual Studio 2010 and didn't think about any of the .Net 4.0 compatibility issues that have arisen.  I'm having no problems with the site communicating with SQL Server 2005 for the regular database stuff.  The only problem I'm having is with setting up Reporting Services.  I have the .Net 4.0 framework installed on the server, however Reporting Services is still using 2.x.  I'm not sure if this is a problem with SSRS or with IIS.  When i go to localhost/Reports it's reading my web.config for my application and throwing an error: "Parser Error Message: Unrecognized attribute 'targetFramework'."  This is referring to a line in my web.config where targetFramework is set to 4.0.


Software that I'm using:

  • Visual Studio 2010
  • SQL Server 2005 Standard
  • IIS 7.0
  • .Net 4.0

Any suggestions?
