Allowing access to EpiServer CMS website to AD user

Vote:
 

We have an EpiServer site in which we unchecked read access for the Everyone group. This forces anyone going to the website to be challenged by the standard EpiServer login screen.

I can log in just fine as I am part of the Administrators Windows group.

We want to allow someone else access so they can test the site and I am having trouble giving them access to log in.

Say their AD name is domain\user, I have the following set up in the site's web.config:


     
      

Then in main authorization for the web site root, I have the following:


     
   

   
     
     
   

Regardless, domain\user cannot log in.

Any ideas on how I can set this up so the user can log in?

Thanks!

Hi Kenneth 

You can deny unauthenticated users by simply using <deny users="?" />. This ensures users must be authenticated before they are authorised. You should be able to remove the virtualRole mapping then too.
