Security :: Multiple Applications Use Same Users & Roles?
Jan 10, 2011
I am using ASP.NET Membership with the default provider. I have a project where there are 3 different applications(seperated by the applicationName). Now I need every user to be able to log in to all the applications, but have a seperate role in each.Is this possible(I dont want to duplicate user details or logins for the same person)?
I'm workin with Visual studio 2010 and I'm trying to create an ASP.net Web Site, language used - C#
I have 2 different pages, for 2 different users with 2 different roles.Each page has a textbox.I have already created them.What I want to do, is to make a bind between this 2 textboxes, so that the second to get the first boxes' text.I managed to do it, but only if the textboxes are on the same page, very easy (Textbox2.Text=TextBox1.Text) . But how to do it for 2 different pages, for 2 different users with 2 different roles?
Another trouble would be....How can I connect the both users same time....after i start debugging the project, I do a sign in but when I sign in with the second user,the first is automaticly siggned out and the text it's lost.Then, how can they synchronize and the second user see what the first one wrote,using that 2 textboxes? Wich is the solution?
I am trying to implement a page for an admin to edit other users details including roles and profile. I have a custom profile provider that stores data in database. My implementation is a page that shows username and allows an admin to reset user password, unlock users and approve and disapprove the users. I wanted to add a column in the gridview to allow the admin to remove or add a user to a role with the constraint that a user should be added only to one role.
I need to create a site that is Roles based and can use AD groups and Users. I found Scott Mitchell's tutorials for setting up "role-based-authorization-cs" [URL]
I've changed to using Windows auth. instead of forms and am pointing it to a remote SQL Database. I can successfully add a user/password/email etc. (although I believe the password and email sections aren't required and would like to remove them as options).
When I create a user (usera) and login to a windows box as usera the menu displays correctly based on the Roles I've added the user to in the SQL Database.
When I add an AD Group and add it to the same Role the menu's that are displayed do not match that of usera.
I'd like to be able to add entire AD groups (They can obviously change so it needs to be dynamic in some way), as well as add individual AD users to Roles. I'd prefer to do this via a Web interface.
My questions are.
1. Am I going about this the right way?
2. If I'm not what would be a better way?
3. If I am what do I need to do to allow ADGroup lookup?
i hve 3 applications with membership providers which are wrking perfectly.. i am storing the users , roles , profiles etc in the same database as for the each application. now i want to store users roles etc in a single db n application data in separate db.. how can i shift existing users from current db to new db without re-creating them ..
I am newbie to asp.net.I want to create roles for the existing users in my database. I dont want to use the membership provider database n roles provided with it.(i don't want to use aspnet.mdf at all)
I am create roles for my existing users n assign i wanted to assign the particular roles to a particular assign.
I have a site witl forms authentication using te login control. I altered my sql server, I added a connectionstring and used the connectionstring in both, <rolemanager> and <Membership>. That part of the web.config is listed below.
The problem is that the login control goed to SQLserver to check the users and their passwords, but it goed to the SQLExpress database for the roles.....
I'm trying programatically to create a new user, that's working OK on it own, but whenever I add the following line to my code, it seems to create two new members with the same name in my aspnet_Users table?
Initially, in my solution I had one project, and had set up all that is required for asp.net security, and that includes users and roles and access rules, etc. All of that was and still is working fine.
Now I added another project to my solution, and my first project points to pages in the second project.
The problem is that it seems like the users and roles are not being transferred accross projects. Not sure if I am explaining my problem correctly...if not, feel free to ask...
Its my first time trying to manage users and roles accross projects within a solution.
I am currently working on an ASP.NET 3.5 and C# web application which deals with users private information like SSN numbers. What are some of the security measures which I need to take from an application development stand point to feel safe?
I am creating a Web Application in asp.net 2.0 and sql server 2005.I want to use an existing database.
I have created a login and a signup page. Then i replace the new SQL database (the one that is created automaticly by the visual studio) with the exiting database I have.If I create a new user, the new user goes to the database and I can login with the new user. I cannot login with the existing users.If I go to the asp.net configuration, I only can see the new users I have created, I cannot see the users that were in the database already and I can't see the roles also.
I can I make the new application to recognize the users and roles of the existing database?
I am not able to allow/deny users based on roles in the web.config (using <location path>). The following does not work even if the user is in the 'Admin' role:[Code]....
I am able successfully execute IsUserInRole() and GetRolesForUser() in the codebehind and get expected results. The same applies to the web.sitemap, adding roles in there do not seem to apply to the user even if he is a member of the role.
Here is my web.config (trimmed some sections out so it's not too long):[Code]....
I am working on an application that resides on a development server on our internal network. The application was originally written to use Membership and Roles. We got busy almost a year ago before the app was finished, and now we are trying to get it ready to use internally.
The login page works just fine, but I have lost the ability to controls users and roles. I am running Visual Studio 2010 Professional now on a Windows 7 VM. I can open the application fine but there is no Web Administration Tool available for me to manage users or roles. If I go to Website -> in Visual Studio, there is no option for ASP.NET Configuration in the drop down menu. It simply isn't there.
How can I regain access to manage users and roles for this application? We are using Forms authentication and the database resides on a SQL Server 2005 instance on a separate box from the web server and my local VM.
I'm planning to make a page that has about 10 different pages for varying use, for example, stats, data entry, reports, logistics, audit, sales, promo, etc etc. I'm anticipating there will be many combinations as to what pages a user may have access to, for each page, a user ought to be authorized to either enter new data, edit data, print and/or just view.
My questions are :
1. can membership & roles be used, once user is logged in, to display links to all the areas of the web app he is allowed access to?
2. besides having access to a particular page, a user should, as mentioned before, be authorized to either enter new, edit, print and/or just view data. 3. Is there a preferred/better method to handle this besides using membership & roles?
,Second and Third applications are accessed throught the first,So Authentication (form authentication) is happening from the first application only , all are deployed on same IIS with seperate virtual directory
, I used the same Entires in both <machineKey> and <forms> Elements in webconfig file of all applications,
Applications are working fine and Page.User.Identity are available in all applications but once loginUrl and defaultUrl entry is changed to actual name other than localhost
Eg: localhost/EmpManager/default.aspx To myserver/EmpManger/default.aspx
the authentication ticket is not available in second and third applicaiton
This is my senario. I want user to login and if "LoggedIn" User has more than one role then it displays the list of radio buttons. After selection of the role user gets further privilages according to the role that he has selected.
I've a problem setting up the role. And user can change his role when ever he wants.
For Example "john" is the user having two roles "Account Manager" and "Project Manager".
I currently have a website up and running and working correctly with godaddy.com using the out-of-the box authentication with an aspnetdb sqlserver database. I have users on this site and am very hesitant to change anything with this database or the web.config file from the working site for fear of wrecking it
So, my challenge is that I need to authenticate a separate application using the same aspnetdb.mdf file without any crossover to my 1st application. I've noticed that the ApplicationName that is currently in my aspnetdb database for the working application is just "/". I know that I'll need to have 2 separate entries in the aspnet_Applications table to define these two applications and then somehow register those names within their respective web.config files - but wanted to have step by step instructions on how to this so as to not "break" the 1st working application that is already live.
Can anyone point me to a document on what changes I will need to make?
Also, with the default create user wizards I'm using, how will it know to create the new user information with the correct application ID so that the user information from one application is not visible to managers of the second application and vice/versa?
