TMG Login with email address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I have TMG setup in our environment proxying access to sharepoint 2010 farm.  Our users are largely external to the environment.  Currently we are setting up AD accounts for the users on registration and giving them usernames to use (samAccountName) and the UPN is domain based (not custom).  We have a need to allow users to login using their email address rather than the username.  I see some forums on updating the UPN to be the email address of the user, but this will not work since the email addresses could be any number of external domains.  While I could manually specify, this would cause other problems with internal applications that rely on the UPN.  I was wondering if there is a way (SDK or other) that I can update the built-in FBA form to use either the mail attribute or the username of the user?  If anyone has done this, any help would be appreciated.

  • With TMG, you would probably need to look at a third party authentication provider from someone like Collective Software.

    Alternatively, you could move to UAG and design your own custom login process...

    The customer I mentioned in the other thread has LOTS of custom UPNs for all their different customers who access a large SharePoint environment; apart from initially managing new identities, I don't believe they have any other problems. YMMV though...
