Windows Authentication and Single Sign-On come to Sitefinity

by Radoslav Georgiev

Today we have released a preview build for the Sitefinity Windows Authentication (WA) and Single Sign-On (SSO) feature. You can download the preview build and test drive the WA & SSO between multiple Sitefinity instances feature. This preview build is already available in your Client.NET accounts.

The download package contains a Sitefinity Project Manager that can be used for creating test projects, documentaion on how to set up WA & SSO and a web application that hosts the Security Token Service (SitefinityStsWebApp.zip). Below is a short video going through the setup process. Before the video was recorded, I have created a blank Sitefinity website and connected it to our corporate Active Directory so that I can set up WA with my domain credentials.


Imporatant! This build is for testing purposes only. It should not be used to upgrade existing Sitefinity projects or to create new project which will be later on deployed in a live environment.

    Will you support the claims from ADFS 2.0?

    Not in the first iteration. ADSF 2.0 and OAuth 2.0 will probably be available in Sitefinity 5.1.

    I did the setup in the video and supporting article. When trying to login to the dashboard I'm getting the message:

    You do not have a permission to access "/sitefinity".Contact your administrator for more information.

    How do i configure access for my windows group to login to the dashboard.

    Looks like the video was removed.  Would you please update the video link?  Otherwise, this topic should be removed.
