I have watched the how to video on Creating a Custom Membership provider. So far it works great. My login control interacts well with it etc. Now i've created a Custom Role Provider. I've created a class that inherits the RoleProvider base class and i've added code to each Sub. My question is, what is the best way to implement the role provider, considering I get the Roles etc from the database?
We are trying to implement Custom Role membership provider for our web app. For authorization we want to check for one more field like Facilityid for the logged on user along with role he has. eg. my User1 having Role1 with Facility1 can access some option and same user role for Facility2 have different option. So is there a way we can extend the existing role/profile provider to authorize user with this additional field along with role assigned.
I am trying to create a Forms Authenticated site and have already used the aspnet_regsql tool to create the necessary logic in my SQL Server DB to hold my data. Now, I am looking to create a custom Membership, User and Role provider for my DB model. I was looking at the following video: [URL]
Now, I get the concept on how to go about it but I notice that this guy uses custom DB Procedures as to the ones that are generated by the aspnet_regsql tool. Can anyone direct me on where I can find info on how to go about building the Membership, User and Role provider class using the DB structure that aspnet_regsql generates? So much junk on google that I am having a hard time finding good guidance.
i'm building an application and i need to manage roles, users and more things so i tought to use the membership provider but i have some questions about it: can i full extend it and can i override the functions to use a database table to store infos about config or i need to build my own provider?
how to implement a custom role provider which has support for parent and child roles?
I have a requirement to have high level Role permissions as per the usual Role provider functionality. However, I also have a requirement to further breakdown permissions into sub roles. I toyed with the idea of having further role instances for sub permissions but I'd prefer to have a native solution which allows for sub roles.
In this scenario, the "Admin" role is actually 2 distinct roles, one for IT and one for Extranet scenarios. Ideally, there is no association between the 2 "Admin" roles because they are unique sub roles.
[Edit]: Following Igor's comment I feel I should clarify. The aspnetdb is already hosting multiple applications and therefore the use of the Application Name is not possible to segregate the sub roles as it is already being used to seperate the roles by application.
I created a custom forms authentication and membership provider and it seems to work fine opening up in WAT, creating roles and adding users. Also when I in my mvc app use it to log users in, it works fine. However it seems to fail to determine a user's role (no errors, but just jump over User.IsInRole(...) lines and Roles.GetRolesForUser(); comes up empty. I got a gut feeling I did something wrong with my configuration, so for now I'll post just that:
I'm building an application that will be used by a number of different schools who want completely separate databases so I've decided to have multiple connection strings and membership/role providers in my web.config file. In my code, I'm trying to set which connection string and provider to use at runtime for the correct database according to the logged in user.
I'm coming into a lot of bits in my code that previously worked fine, that now don't. For example, I used to use:
But now that I've changed it to this, it doesn't work anymore:
The compiler tells me that AddUserToRole is not a member of 'r'. I've had similar problems not just with Roles but Membership too, like with calling CreateUser.
I'd still like to be able to use all these methods that I was using before which are extremely handy. I just want to be able to set the membership/role provider at runtime rather than use the default one. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a simpler way to go about this?
So i would like that the page "pag1.aspx" is reached bypassing the "main.aspx" so If I try to digit directly on the server http://localhost/forms/pag1.aspx?C=159 ......correctly appears the login page....and the URL became..
http://localhost/Forms/LogIn.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fForms%2fpag1.aspx%3fC%3d151&C=159 and after login I can see correctly the page1.aspx . when I try to reach the page from my browser..I digit
http://myserver/forms/pag1.aspx?C=159 .... the login page appears...but the url became..
and after login I cannot see the page1.aspx....but main.aspx
I have created custome Membership Role and Profile provider using INGRES db. Now I can see my IngresMembership and IngresRole provider in the Provider tab(Select a different provider for each feature (advanced) ) of WSAT but when I clik on security tab I get this error:
"There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.
The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
What am I missing? Do I need to add code for all override methods for Role provider? I have just written code for the Initialize and GetRolesForUser functions.
I have a custom role provider class that is currently being used by a web application. We are now in the process of migrating several windows applications from VB6 to VB.Net. From preliminary research, I understand that I can use the custom role provider in win forms as well and came across Client Application Services. I understand how the Client Application Services is setup, but can't seem to find how the custom role provider code will be shared between the web apps and the windows apps.
I am creating a interface for User Role Management based on built in membership provider.I want to display all the roles as check boxes for a selected user. I am able to display all the roles in the database, but not able to load the specific user roles. For example, I am able to publish role 1 role 2 role3 role 4 as check boxes. But if the user is already flagged as role 1 and role 3, I am not able to show that data (role1 and 3 should be checked when form loads, but right now, they are not checked)...How do I get the roles as checked boxes display on a page.I am using a repeater control to display roles as check boxes on the page..
I've just started a small ASP.NET web application. In this project, I need to authenticate the users with Active Driectory. I managed to authenticate the users successfully with Active Directory. But with Authorization with Custom Role Provider, I'm so confused.You see, the user name and password are stored in AD. So, my approach is that after the LoggedIn event of the Login Control, I check if UserName is not yet stored in the Users table yet, then I will store the UserName there. Eventually, I have all the UserName of the AD users store in the Users table so I can assign Roles to the users.
Let's say I assigned UserA to RoleOne. After he logs in successfully, I do some query to look for his Roles.
Where do I keep the Role ticket? In the Cookie or in the session? How does the authorization of ASP.NET role provider work? I want to store the authentication ticket like ASP.NET role prover does too.
I have a custom oledb role provider that pretty much a cust and past of:
except I've used oledb instead of odbc. I'm connecting to an oracle database and the tables have been created with out any issues. now if I go into the Website Administration Tool and try to create a new role I get the error
"Specified cast is not valid."
I can create a role directly in the database (through TOAD) and the role will show up in the .NET WAT, so I know it can make the connection and read the info just fine. I just can't create or delete or modify a role without the above error.
i'm new to the mvc framework but i used forms authentification in an asp.net webapplication. Because im forced to use Sybase SQL Anywhere server i use membership / profile / role provider from sybase.Why i can't login in the MVC Application? When i create a user via mvc web control i'm logged in. But when i logout and try to login i get a error that username or password is not correct.Maybe someone has an idea? Could it be a problem with the application name? Both have the applicationname " / " ?Both applications has these web.config entries:
My question relates to membership providers. I have two websites that run on two different servers. One website is a community website that uses Telligent community server 2007. The other is a website that contains information. I have a form where users can request more information. What I would like to do is when a user requests more information, automatically create a user account in my community website. I was told that I can create a custom asp.net membership provider that will create a new user account in my community website. I have read some info at msdn and asp.net websites, but I am still unclear as to how I can create a custom membership provider that will work across different websites running on different servers.
I've implemented my custom membership provider. I use third server for authentication (call web method that validates user/password). I need this user/password for retrieve some additional data from this server. Asp.net MVC uses FormsAuthentication and cookie for keep 'login state' by default. It works well when I login on site first time. But when I close and open site again sometime after, cookie keeps it 'login'but I don't have credential for access to server data. I can change cookieless attribute (to 'UseUri' for example) in configure file but in this case I should login again if I open second tab with this app in same browser.My questions:
Is way to call SingOut of FormsAuthentication (remove authentication ticket from browser) when user closes asp.net mvc app?Is secure way to pass user/password data through session? Because server is unstable and interrupt connection often and app should have possibility for silent reconnect.
For three days now I have been going from one tutorial/video/sourcecode to the other about how to create the membership-part of my website, but I am still none the wiser :S
I have been looking through this video and these tutorials on the subject, but either they are not what I am looking for or they are too advanced, that I would just write my own user-procedures like I would in classic ASP..
The standard sql membership provider is nice and all, but I really favor using my own database-logic and not drown the website/database with tables, views, stores procedures and highly custimizable features that I'll never use.. That's why I'm trying to build my own custom membership provider
I think I'm on the right track with building a class that inherits from System.Web.Security.MembershipProvider, but when I tell VS to "Implement abstract class" I already have a problem with what I'm seeing: public override string ApplicationName
I know what the applicationname is for, but I am fairly certain that I will never be using the same database for several websites for this project, so why do I need to implement that functionality?
I guess what my problem is, is that although a method like Create-/DeleteUser is handy, I would like to determine whether or notI want to implement that.. Of course the CreateUser is of need to the CreateUserWizard control, but is the ApplicationName really neccesary?
Maybe I just need a little adwise from people that have had a need of custom database-structure - that's actually all I need, I don't think I will see a need for extra functionality codewise..
