Adding Forms Based user as an enterprise user in FBA database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to add an Forms Based user as an enterprise user in Microsoft Project Server 2013. While using the below code for the same, an exception called AdminNTAccountNotFound is encountered. When I create a FBA user from the front end, and add it as an enterprise user, a Random Key is generated in the database. But when I want to do the same operation through code it gives the above exception and no key is generated for that user in the Database. Also, I could not find any property in the Resource.asmx web service to set the same random key. Please provide some pointers on how to set that random key.
