Thanks for the Reply.
Can you connect the dots a little more for me?
I went through the EntLib's Security Quickstart and I didn't see any mention of how to connect a Username/Password database to the Security block. I went through the P&P article and it didn't talk anything about Entlib's Seciurity block or how to make
use of it. I understand for the Entlib prsentations that I should not use Active Directory for my authentication.
How can Entlib's Security block do Authentication without a username/password database? How does it get access to the information needed to do authentication?
Is there any complete end-to-end sample of using Entlib's Security block to do authentication of username/passwords that includes setting up the database and adding usernames and passwords to this database?
You're really using ASP.NET's authentication features there; EntLib's security block only does authorization and caching of security information. Look at EntLib's Security Quickstart or this how-to
article from P&P for examples.
Hope this helps,
I have a ASP .Net Web application in VB using VSTS 2008. I have added the Enterprise library and configured it. Now I want to add some new Users and Passwords to the database to test out the authentication. I do see any methods in the Enterprise Library to
How do I add new users with passwrords for the EnterpriseLibrary.Security function to authenticate?
Can this be done programmatically?
Are ther any examples of this?
