    Issue what I an facing when ever User Clicks on the My Site link it is asking for credentials again.

    How can we skip this pop ,please suggest any realistic approach for resolving this.

  • I think you're missing the point of the post Martin. Anytime you go from one web application to another web application in SharePoint, for the first time during that session, credentials will be passed to the new web application. This is simply how it works. There is no need to install fiddler, nothing is wrong. Raghu is simply trying to find a way to easily configure the environment so that the users aren't getting prompted.

  • Try some of these and see if they help at all. Despite what they say, claims can be a pain to get working and sometimes its easier to just deal with the prompts.

    Configuring claims

    Configure claims using SQL

    SharePoint and ADFS

  • Just as with the Company URL, the MySite URL also needs to be added to the local intranet zone on the client systems. Whenever you cross-over a web application boundary for the first time during a browser session, the user is re-authenticated because you are going to a different IIS web site. Each of the URLs in question need to be in the local intranet zone so that automatic pass through of the user credentials can take place. (You could also modify the settings of the Trusted Zone to allow for pass through authentication and place the web addresses in the trusted zone if you prefer.)

  • Hi Daniel 

    Thanks for reply...

    what you suggested is exactly correct.but doing that in each and every client machine is not going to be easy task.

    this solution will work only for IE but not for Other browsers.

    so please suggest any other way which will work in all browsers without any client machine configuration

    Thanks

  • Well, if the client machines are part of your domain, you can configure those using Group Policy, which as you say, will at least work for the folks who are using IE. Are your users accessing from machines that are not part of the domain? You might need to look at implementing claims authentication and present them with a sign-in page when they first connect then.

  • Hi Daniel ,

    thanks for response.

    In that case I have to enable  claims authentication in both http://Company/ and http://MySite/

    so in future if I  provide link to another site(http://newsite) for that also do we have to enable claims authentication?

    correct me if my understanding is wrong

    Thanks

  • Yes, you would need to have both web applications setup for claims authentication.

  • Hi Daniel,

    Today I have tried this scenario in our test environment but no luck.

    I have created two web application in below process

    CA -  manage web Application -> New ->Selected Claims Based Authentication ->Claims Authentication Types  as Integrated Windows Authentication

    http://webapplication1/

    http://webapplication2/

    then uploaded fews image to webapplication2 and referred those images in Webapplication1 .

    when i try to log in instead of asking forms based login it was asking for windows pop .......when I enter credentials it was again asking for credentials again for every image which is loading from other webapplication.

    does I am doing any thing wrong ? please suggest.

  • hi all,

    Is there any alternate way to achieve this?

  • Sorry, been caught up in work. When setting up claims authentication, you need more than just creating a claims aware web application. You need to setup the claim source. Creating a claims based web app, and using Windows auth is just like using a classic mode web application (basically). So, yes, there is more to it.
