Integrating Auhtentication and Authorisation



We are developing a new site for a client in CMS 5.  We need to set up the logins for the client's customers that they have been maintaining in a separate database.  How do we go about integrating the 50,000 or so client's and their login info into the new EPiServer site?

My understanding is that CMS5 uses the MS default membership and role system which sets up a series of aspnet_XXX tables to hold the info. So, we cannot just read the data from the client's database.

Hi Sunil!

you could quite easily develop your own custom Membership/Role-providers for the customers database and plug them in to episerver by simply adding them to the web.config.
