    Your features page states that Sitefinity supports pluggable authentication. I don't see any specific examples in the docs, and other questions on this forum don't seem to help either.

    Is there a simple example that shows how to implement this? Just reading usernames and passwords from a CSV for example.

    We need to verify logins by web-service calls to an existing legacy application, .

    Hi Gareth,

    Sitefinity is based on ASP.NET and as such, it follows the provider pattern. What this means, is that you can inherit Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Data.MembershipDataProvider (for managing users) and Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Data.RoleDataProvider (for managing roles). Implementing a provider that doesn't use OA is somewhat tedious, so I would recommend to you that you import the roles and users from the other system that you have to support. If that there are some changes in the external system, you will have to synchronize the items.

    Regards,
