Sharing user authentication information outside of light switch (i.e. MVC App)


  • A have a scenario where light switch will work for most all of what I need out of the box but I have one situation that I hope can work as well.

    I intend to use light switch internally (to populate products and customer data) and  but I still will have an external facing MVC app for some clients of the business to use to update order information.   I know I can expose the data I need (products) via OData but I was hoping that there might be a way to authenticate the clients using information in the light switch database.

    Essentially the user name and password would be a part of the light switch DB and i would like to use that to authenticate them from the MVC app.

    Any thoughts/solutions around this general idea or if not some other method that might work?
