Multiple applications and users

We have multiple applications (100+) and lots of users.

Some users need access to multiple applications.

We have a central administration application, that handles all user management.

We use membership, role and profile providers.


Should I create an record in the aspnet_Applications for each application, or is it better to use a central single "domain" name in the aspnet_applications table and use the aspnet_Roles table to store the applications, the user has access to?

Are you using the default schema provided by Microsoft?  If so, I don't think it supports allowing users from one application to log in to another.  Each user record is associated with a specific application.  So if you need your users to be able to use the same account in multiple applications, you may have to use a single application name to accomplish that goal.

User Application security model
Hello everybody, I'm trying to reach a better understanding of the UA security model. By this I mean the various levels and layers that define wheter a user can or cannot read/write an attribute through specific portlets of the UA. This is important for me to properly configure the UA to do behave in a specific way, outlined lower in this message. 1. UA Security Model ==================== Consider for instance the "detail" portlet used for modifying one's own first name. 1. The logged on user has to be allowed to execute the portlet. 2. The logged on user ...

User control for multiple applications
I am trying to build a user control which I can use across multiple applications - All the applications I am developing will have the same header, so naturally I have created a user control for this. As far as I understand, you need to create a strong key for the user control and add the dll to the GAC, and add a reference to the machine.config file. I have read an article on this but have not been able to get it to work:( The error occurs when I try to register the usercontrol on the .aspx page, eg. <%@ Regis...

Using .net AJAX enabled application in non .net Web Application
Hi,Does anyone have similar experience in development?  I want to check if it's possible to run .net ajax object (from one standalone .net framework platform in company) with non .net application (i.e. J2EE web application)?  It is because we want to add certain feature (i.e. office communicator chat) to our exist application (oracle J2ee). Please give me some advice :) Thanks! Hi, .Net AJAX is based on .Net Framework architecture. Thus .Net Framework currently lacks support for other platforms, such as Java. Please check this link:

User Application load-balancing + fault tolerance ; User Application scaleability
Hello all, Please bare with these rather naive questions regarding the U.A. I'm trying to confirm/infirm some possibilities for a customer and I cannot find all the information I'd need in the Novell documentation. Is there any other way to do load balancing + fault tolerance with U.A. beyond using JBoss clustering ? I suppose one way would be to have two completely distinct U.A. installs (each with its own DB) and do load-balancing through a dedicated device (web gateway/proxy). Any other idea ? I highly suspect running two separate instances of the U.A. using the same...

Mapping a single user to multiple applications
I want to implement a single user sign on system for several web applications using the membership provider in 2.0 but having examined the schema of the generated schema for the database I have found a problem. The primary key in the aspnet_users table is user_id as it is in the aspnet_membership table. This makes it difficult for a user to use the same login for several applications. I know it is possible to apply the same application name to the web.config file in several sites so that the user list applies across applications. The only problem with this is that&nb...

Single user with access to multiple applications
Hi There I am implimenting the .NET 2.0 Membership system within a set of applications I am working on.  I am using the SqlMembershipProvider. I want to know if it is possible to give 1 user account access to multiple applications.  Looking at the DB schema, there seems to be a 1 to 1 membership between a User and an Application. Ideally I want a 1 to Many relationship.  This would affectively allow us to grant an existing user access to new applications as they are developed.  It would also allow a user to log in, and be presented with a list of Applications they...
