SharePoint 2010 FBA Pack Released
I’ve just released the SharePoint 2010 FBA Pack on CodePlex:
The FBA Pack is a collection of web parts and tools for managing forms based authentication in SharePoint 2010. It is a port of the SharePoint 2007 CKS Forms Based Authentication Solution to SharePoint 2010. It has been changed extensively to work with SharePoint 2010’s claims based authentication and has been restructured to use Visual Studio 2010’s new SharePoint project type.
SharePoint 2010 can be configured out of the box to authenticate against an ASP.NET Membership database, but strangely it does not include any tools for managing membership users and roles, or any web parts to allow new users to register or to change/reset their password. That’s where the FBA Pack comes in – it contains:
Users can be created, deleted and edited, as well as assigned to Roles or SharePoint groups.
Roles can be created and deleted.
Change Password Web Part and Page
This highly configurable web part will allow a user to change their password. Additionally a built in Change Password page has been included, with a link to it on the users menu.
Membership Request Web Part
This highly configurable web part will allow new users to register to site. An email will be sent to the user with their temporary password and instructions to login to the site. As well there is the option to review membership requests.
Password Recovery Web Part
This highly configurable web part will allow a user to reset their password. An email will be sent to he user with their temporary password and instructions on changing it.
Membership Review List
The FBA Pack can be configured to allow new user requests to be moderated. The membership review list displays all new membership requests, which can either be accepted or rejected.
