Nauplius.ADLDS.FBA

Business Purpose

This is a SharePoint plugin that fully configures a SharePoint farm for the SharePoint Administrator to allow users with alternate account types to log into SharePoint, speeding up implementation and simplifying management and maintenance. In addition, it offers a friendly user profile for these alternate account types, bringing in details such as their full name, phone number, and other valuable information.

Technical Information

This solution automatically provisions Web Applications to support an Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) or Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) instance. An application page in Central Administration allows easy configuration and maintenance, as well as one-click deployment of all of the settings needed to leverage the instance. This solution also imports User Profile properties from the instance in order to provide a friendly profile for AD LDS/ADAM users.

Supported Platforms

SharePoint 2010 Standard or Enterprise

Application Type

SharePoint Solution (WSP)

Prior to pulling in a User Profile, AD LDS/ADAM users will display the logon identity as the display name:

If the AD LDS/ADAM user attempts to make a Profile, their Preferred Name is changed to the Claims Identity:

By importing the Profiles, the user can have a friendly Preferred Name (e.g. using the displayName attribute) instead:

As well as fixing up their Display Name, other profile attributes are pulled in:

First Name
Last Name
Office
