    Hi... I have finally gotten Sitefinity to use Active Directory login. I'm having a problem assigning role permissions however. I do have AD group assigned as Unrestricted in the web.config file, and that user can login and has full access. Other users in other groups that I have assigned Allow access in Sitefinity, can not access what they need to.

    For example, I have a user called TESTUSER. In Active Directory he is a member of GROUP1 and GROUP2. He can login to Sitefinity okay.

    In the admin console, I have tried to grant Allow to CMS Access for both of those groups. In addition, I have even granted Everyone CMS Access for testing. The user still can not get into the CMS admin section. When trying to get to the dashboard, the error page about "This type of page is not served." comes up.

    Any ideas?

    I thought I found my solution in this KB article:


    but adding that CustomRoleProvider did not do the trick. Still, the only user group that has CMSAccess is the group listed as Unrestricted in web.config.

    Hello Michael Buchsbaum,

    Please remove the custom role provider - it's not needed for that version. 

    I am a little bit lost in the explanations though - first you say that the users are able to login with the web.config settings only, then you set CMSAccess on their roles and they cannot login anymore. Why do you need to set the permissions on both places? Perhaps I am missing something, for which I apologize. 

    If it is possible, please provide us with a login link (in a private thread) - we will try to login and check all permissions. 

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
