SHarepoint Integration with AD RRS feed

  • Question

  • When we install sharepoint server, it automatically integrated with  active directly and everyone in 

    same domain can access it?

    or do we need to configure manually?  

    Thanks,

  • You would have to build your own provider via Visual Studio.

  • You could do a BCS connection to a data source and have that integrate with your user profile. Like Trevor mentioned you will have to develop a custom provider. Don't know if you want to enrich the claims set apart from what is provided by SP STS.

  • By default, SharePoint will integrate with Active Directory and you will be able to grant AD users access to your SharePoint site without any extra configuration. If you want to grant everyone in your domain access to the site, you can add "NT Authority\All Authenticated Users" to SharePoint (either with direct permissions or into a SharePoint group).

  • Yes. You can either use something called 'Forms Based Authentication' where users log in with a username and password that exists soley in SharePoint, or if you have at least a one way trust between domains (2 way is ideal) then you can use Active directory accounts from the second domain.

  • Here is a good article I've used several times for configuring Forms Based Authentication. The user accounts will exist in a new database that you create in SQL.

  • Is there anyway we can store user in sharepoint?

  • No, you have to use an external data store (AD, AD LDS, other LDAP, SQL database, XML file, etc).
