Add users using FBA to an Extended Web Application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We have an existing SharePoint 2007 site which has an extended Web Application, the Extended web Application uses FBA, we have already added a few FBA users to the Extended web app, but now we want to add a few more FBA users to the site. Can anyone please help how we can do this? I am not aware how these users were added the first time.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks,

    Bokes


    Thanks, Bokes

  • Hi,

    Does these uses already exist and you want to grant them permission to the extended web application? If so, you can go to site collection and choose Site Settings> Permissions>Add user. Then you can search and add the user.

    For more information about configure FBA in SharePoint 2007, please refer to this site:

  • Hi Bokes,

    The above link also provide the steps about add new user to database. When configuring form based authentication, you need to create a ASP.Net Web Site with a web.config file. After saving the web configuration file, you can run the ASP.Net Configuration Wizard to create new users. You can get the detailed screen shoots in this site, just search with ‘Create a User’ on this site:

    Form Authentication for MOSS 2007 Site: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/19055/Form-Authentication-for-MOSS-2007-Site .

    You can also use the URL to open the configuration, change the URL to your web site URL. If you don’t know the URL, you need to get help from the people who configured FBA.

    Thanks,
