    Greetings,

    Is it possible to have Sitefinity's BackOffice running as a different website?

    Basically we need to have our own form authentication tables and forms authentication mechanism to allow users to access our website. And we need to have Sitefinity's BackOffice running as a separate website using your own authentication system.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    This would be optimally implemented through an additional Sitefinity membership provider for the system you use for authentication. Sitefinity 4.0 uses its own objects like Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Model.User which inherits from ASP.NET MembershipUser. This means that you need to ensure that your provider will work with the same types. It would be possible to separate FrontEnd and BackEnd websites in Sitefinity 4.0, but this would require many changes in  IIS settings  and web.config. This could cause many issues for which we are not aware of and we have not tested this scenario.


    All the best,

    Thank you very much Ivan,

    Are there any tutorials available showing how to implement a second Membership Provider on Sitefinity? Mainly keeping the current one for Administrators for Sitefinity's BackOffice access and create a new one in order to create and authenticate users and check which roles they are in?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Daniel,

    We are working on samples and documentation. Currently I cannot provide you with sample of custom provider. The API of the providers is going to be changed in some aspects and there are not implemented methods for some of the wrappers that can be used with Role, Membership an Profile providers.

    Kind regards,
