LS Authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,


    Is there a way to use an external authentication mechanism (ADFS, ...) to access a LS application?

    Best regards, Eric.

  • We don't support any other authN schemes in V1.

    That said, if you are doing a web-only application, and you can put a custom login.aspx page out infront of your LS app, and have that page set the ASP.NET auth cookie to a valid LightSwitch user, yes, you can integrate other types of authN.  Also, you can write a custom membership provider for users to get even more flexibility.

    So, there are possible ways, but nothing supported, and not something the team has really focused on internally.
