I have a solution of Episerver CMS 7.5.446 with Commerce 188.8.131.52.
By default we had separate users in the databases (CMS and Commerce) and used in Web.Config roleManager = SqlServerRoleProvider and = membership = SqlServerMembershipProvider.
Now we need the users and roles created in Manager to be available also in CMS and restricted by the roles like is detailed here http://webhelp.episerver.com/
I changed the roleManager = CMSRoleProvider and membership = CMSMembershipProvider where the provider is the connection string name for Manager database in CMS web.config and expected this to be working like on other application we made (with same settings).
Unfortunately, this is not working and I am not sure why I do wrong of incomplete. If anyone has ideea ?
Thanks a lot in advance !!
Have you tried the multiplexprovider?
To an "user" to appear in CMS site, you must create the account for them. Creating contact is not enough.
here's my settings from web.config (which is default), and it works for me:
