EPiServer 7.5 Community/RelateHi - this is what im trying to do:
Update the EPiServer user (EpiserverProfile object) and the community user (IUser) email in code.
All users in my sulotion have an Episerver user (EpiserverProfile) AND a community user (IUser) that is connected - which means that if you update the EPiserver user email via the CMS-Admin UI the correspondent Community user will also be updated.
Now - i can easily update just the Community object (IUser) by cloning the IUser object i wat to update and simply update it by using EPiServer.Common.Security.SecurityHandler -> update. The problem is that i also want the change to be made to the correspondent Episerver user (EpiserverProfile).
Since the community user email gets automaticly updated when i update the Episerver user email in the Admin UI - i thought that the same thing would happen if i programmatically just updated the EpiserverProfile. So thats what i did:I collected the user i wanted to update (var profile = new EPiServerProfile(ProfileBase.Create(user.UserName, true))). Then i set a new email to the Email propery on the profile and call Save().
This is what happens:
- I search for the user in the Admin UI.- In the list of search result - the OLD email still shows.- If i click on the profile - the NEW email shows.- The correspondent community user did not get automaticly updated as it would if i updated the EpiserverProfile from the UI.- If i now press "Save" in the UI however - everything will get updated as i want it.Why doesnt the EpiserverProfile.Save() method execute in the same way as the "save" button in the UI for a EpiserverUser?
I would use the Get method to grab the users profile and the save method to update it instead of creating a new?
