Custom security trimming for FAST search with Claims RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have an external system integration point for SharePoint, in which, the external system sends an xml file to a common file location. BCS was developed to crawl the xml files using FAST 2010 so the data is available in SharePoint.

    The problem is SharePoint uses Site Minder authentication with custom claims provider. external content has to be secured using the custom claims. I tried populating the windowssecuritydescriptorfield in BCS model and this works perfectly for AD accounts. However this does not work for custom claims as I cannot generate the sid for the claim. Also we do not have 1:1 match for the claims with AD groups.

    Any idea how to implement the common security Descriptor using a custom claim? Or how to secure the external contents using custom claims.
