How to remove domain name from login credentials? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

         I have a window based WSS site. It is accessed by external users also. Actually, when users try to access it from inside or outsite, they have to give the username with domain also ( for e.g domain\user1). we need to remove the domain name from the login.  Is there anyway that user can login using only his/her loginname and password ?

         I would really appreciate the reply.

    Thanks,
    Sam.

  • Hello Srpatel,

     

    Which type of authentication method is used in your environment for the intranet and extranet authentication?

     

    If you’re using Windows Integrated authentication, as Andre said:

     

    ·          For intranet access, the Windows credential will be automatically sent for authentication, provided the following two options are checked in the Web browser:

    Internet Options – Advanced – Settings – Enable Integrated Windows Authentication (Checked)

    Security – (The Zone where the SharePoint site belongs) – Custom level – Settings – Automatic logon with current user name and password (Checked)  Alternatively, use Automatically logon only in Intranet zone checked for the intranet SharePoint site.

    ·          For extranet access, if the computer is not using VPN or keep the domain login session, the Basic Authentication will be used as the backup of Windows Integrated authentication. In such a case, a credential prompt will appear for the user to authenticate against the domain account.

    If you’re using Form-based authentication, please provide more details to us. Thanks.

     

    Best Regards,

  • Using Windows Autentication, no  "need the Domain where user are on AD".
    Using Forms Base Authentication yes.

  • "Is there anyway that user can login using only his/her loginname and password"
    When i say "Using Forms Base Authentication yes", want to say recreate users on form authentication with same password, not the same but since you ask "his/her loginname and password" this could work.

  • Hi Lionel,

                     I appreciate your reply. Actually it's a wss site which is accessed internally as well as externally using windows Authentication. On our test server, I created a site with same settings as the production one. I changed the Authentication from Windows to Basic under IIS and it solves my issue. I can login without the domain name. If I apply this change to my production site then will it create any problem? 

    Thanks,
    Sam,
