Commerce with AD user


Hi Everyone,

How to manage commerce with AD user? when log in with AD user and add cart with this method


public static void Add(string entryCode, decimal quantity)
var cart = new CartHelper("name");
Entry entry = CatalogContext.Current.GetCatalogEntry(entryCode);
cart.AddEntry(entry, quantity, false); // here i check cart has right item and GetTotalItemCount() is right

but when i count item in cart with this code in another page GetTotalItemCount() is 0

var cart = new CartHelper("name"); 
return cart.GetTotalItemCount();


Any idea why? i have episerver 7.5 and have AD user in CMS as read only

The cart is identifed by the current contact id. It looks like when you using AD account, the current user is not set correctly all the time, causing the CurrentContactId to be mapped to "anonymous", then causing your problem.

I would suggest you to check if SecurityContext.Current.CurrentUser to see if it returns correct value all the time.

We have an ongoing US to handle this situation more correctly.

Current user is correct all the time but problem is  Episerver creat new cart to AD user evertime when AD user add item to cart. When i log in to Commerce and check order cart. Same AD user many cart created and every cart have just one item.

That's strange. Can you make sure that those carts have same name and same market?

I am sure that cart have the same name because  vi config cart name property in start page (multi-site, share database)and all of them have default market.

I guess i know now what the problem is.  I dont have AD membership provider in Commerce.
Do you know how to make Active Directory Membership Provider for EPiCommerce ?

To my knowledge there's no out-of-box support for ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider for Commerce Manager at the moment.

But we're working on one - should be released in a couple of weeks.
