Adding to the user profile



I want to extend the EPiServer User in CMS 5 to hold additional properties and hold a reference to a customer account (customerID) in an eComms app, does anyone have some advice on the best way to achieve this?

In the past (cms 4) I have created a customDB to store and extend the user properties and used the EPiServer UserSid as the unique key to marry the 2 accounts together.

Thanks in advance

Hi Ian.

If I understand you correctly, maybe this a solution to your problem:

You could extend the EPiServerProfile/SqlProfile with the properties you want. You could also show/edit these properties from the "Edit/Create user" UI by using PlugInArea.SidSettingsArea. This way you can store the customerID as an own property on the user.

Take a look at this blog post by Stefan Forsberg:

Hope this helps!
