Claims anthentication? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to grant a subcontractor, which don't have an AD account, read access to its PWA project site. Can you tell me if Claims are able to do that?

    I was seeking a step by step guide to use Claims but didn't find one...

    Thanks

    You need to seek assistance of your network administrator/specialist, he has to publish the PWA through ISA. let me know if its works.

  • Hi,

    Forms / Claims based authentication will allow you to provide access to your PWA instance for the user who doesn't have an AD account. Details of setting it up are at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee922608.aspx. I understand it's easier in 2010 than in 2007, but haven't actually tried it myself yet.

    Let us know how you go.

  • Hi WLID1966,

    I have another work around option for you to do this but only applicable if OK with your organization policies.

    Since the contractor is not part of the AD group, create his account on the local machine and create his user based on this login details in the PWA. make him part of the respective group and let him access his projects. Once the contractor work will be done, simply mark the user as In-Active to stop his access to the PWA. Later, if the same contractor works for again, you may can mark him Active if required to allow the access.

    Not sure if your contract has to access the PWA from within the domain, because if not then you have to publish your PWA to internet so that contractor or other users can also have access to the PWA from outside the domain.

    Let me know if it helps.
