    Hi Dhaval,

    Thank you for using our services.

    From the stack trace it seems that  the problem comes from the new Claims authentication mode that we have introduced. Please add the following property to your Security configuration file ( the top declaration line ):

    <securityConfig xmlns:config="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration" xmlns:type="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration:type" .... >
    the property is authenticationMode ="Forms".

    Hope this helps.

    Having the same issue.
    It's occurring after upgrading and merging the web.config settings. The settings to merge come from the posted upgrade docs.
    I reviewed the security.config and the setting recommended here is already set to forms in our case.
    Few other notes: We Installed the Windows Identity Foundation on our server and also have the Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll in the bin.

    I think I found the issue:
    I was using the wrong settings which were suggested in the upgrade docs. You need to keep the 4.4 settings for forms authentication. This is in the web.config under system.webserver.
