Authentication Only for Lightswitch HTML RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been doing a lot of reading about LS users, roles, permissions, authentication and authorization.

    My simple question is: Can we not use Windows authentication only? I would simply like to set up a table of users that can access the LS HTML application if their Windows credentials are present in the Users table.

    So far I have:

    • Added a Desktop Client to my solution and named it 'Administration'.
    • Set Access Control to 'Allow only users and AD groups specified in the Users screen...'
    • Granted access for Debug
    • Started the application which brings me to the Administration page
    • Browsed to 'Users' under Administration
    • Added a user, which is my user account in AD
    • Administration page found my user account and added it to the Users table as domainname\useraccount
    • It also pulled my Full Name, so I know the AD account was found
    • Published the project

    Now, when I try to browse to my HTML client in a browser, it asks for credentials. However, using my AD account credentials does not work.

    No further permissions or authorization are required at this time. I simply need to add Users to the list in my Administration client and allow them to log in.

    Is this not possible? 

    Thank you!
