Our current environment:
Our Identity and Access Management system is through another CA product call Siteminder which protects all of our existing sites. It handles both authentication/authorization/single sign on. It contains policy information which governs how sites are protected. It has its own data repository which contains our users, roles, and resource protection policy.
We are currently looking at replacing our existing CMS. We are looking at a number of possible replacements including SharePoint; but are interested in SiteFinity as well. But we have the following requirements:
The CMS must integrate with SiteMinder in respect to our data repository. We don’t want to have to maintain two separate user/roles/policy stores. My understanding is out of the box SiteFinity uses its own storage for security. Below is excerpt from your site:
Users and Roles in Sitefinity Database
The following tables are used by the default Membership and Role providers in Sitefinity:
- Telerik_Users - a table that stores Membership data for every user such as username, password, last activity date, e-mail, and so on
- Telerik_Roles - a table that stores role names
- Telerik_UsersInRoles - the table that holds the Users – Roles relation
Permissions are saved by role name in other tables.
We DO NOT want to have to duplicate the above information as Siteminder already has this storage. Ideally, we want our CMS replacement to leverage Siteminder. Our current CMS (Portal) has its own storage via sql tables and we’ve had to duplicate users/roles. Our goal is to get away from this dual maintenance.
has anyone had any experience with this?
