Cannot get audiences to work with LdapRoleProvider

  • Cannot get audiences to work with LdapRoleProvider shannon.stewart

    I have a publishing SharePoint site set up that allows self-provisioning accounts. I'm using ADMembershipProvider, along with the LdapRoleProvider. When user's create an account, they are automatically added to a default AD group, which is already added to the built in Visitors SharePoint group. So once the user creates an account and logs in, he/she has access to the landing page.

    We have some web parts that we set up to display only to certain user's in AD groups. With this, we chose to use audiences. After entering the AD group in the audience for the web part, it does not display even if the current user is assigned to that AD group. I found a blog post that explains exactly what is happening, but even after trying his suggestion, it still is not working.

    LdapRoleProvider and Audience Targeting Bug

    Has anyone had any success with this?

  • I can think of is to have another timerjob that polls some kind of queue (for example a sharepoint list in my site collection) for new timerjobs to create, and creates it if an item has been added... but I keep running into security related obstacles. Since timerjobs are child objects of SPWebApplication, they are stored in the config database. If you have set up your farm properly in such a way that the App pool user for your content web application does not have write access to the Config database, you can't create new TimerJobDefinitions from code that runs in your content web app. A bad

  • I have a web part which I am trying to target to a specific audience (the 'Staff' audience.) I have the web part in the home page of a site that has anonymous access enabled. I have set the Target Audience of the webpart to 'Staff'. The idea is that anonymous viewers can't see the web part, but logged-in members of staff can see the webpart. This works fine, as long as I am browsing the site from the server on which SharePoint is running, using the internal domain name (e.g. http://localhost:5050/site). If I view the site home page while not logged in, I can't see the webpart

  • I am newbie in SharePoint 2010. Here is what I'm trying to do... I have portal users (active directory integrated). A user from x department will fill an employee request form which includes 4-5 textboxes and possibly a combobox. After he/she fills the form the related department's manager approves or rejects it. That's all. I have a SQL table which includes the user's department, email and department manager info so that I can map user from AD account name. User's manager is not found on AD in our structure. So how can I achieve this? Thanks for any help.

  • One of the users has updated his photo/picture on his My Site and it is showing the updated photo (on his My Site) as well as the picture property (user profile property) in SSP is updated with the new url (http://...). However, the new picture is not displaying in the other sharepoint web-applications. I have verified that the user has already contribute/uploaded a document into the document library in the site-collection. I even removed the user from the sharepoint member group and re-added the user using people picker window however still the result is same. I run the "stsadm -o sync

  • I have a standard website (one Web Application and one Site Collection) with some custom pages and webparts. The issue I'm having is that when I try to switch users, using the "Sign In As a Different User" and entering new credentials (even for another Site Collection admin account), IE tries the account three times, and then it presents a 401 Access Denied screen. After that, if I erase all the stuff of access denied page from the browser's url, I'm logged as the new account I just had entered and was not accepted.

  • I have created a simple survey with SharePoint Server 2010 with the intent of allowing all our domain users to access and complete it. I added some basic branching logic to this survey as well and set Domain Users as Site Collection Members. When one of these users tries to take the survey, the see a list of questions up to the question with branching. After selecting their answers... they try to submit their answers they still received the Access Denied error. I have tried sending an access request from a test user (as prompted by the error page), but I still received the same error

  • We are facing an issue with Audience and the senario follows. We have two Domains namely Domain_One and Domain_Two in the same forest. Both are Trusting each other. Both the domain has its own set... users + 20domaintwousers). SharePoint Applications are hosted in Domain_one. SSP is hosted in Domain_one. We have an audience in SSP & it is controlled by the rule "Memberof -> 'Dev-X'" Audience pulls only Domain_one user details (30domainone users) and it ignores Domain_two users (20domaintwousers) though they are member of 'Dev-X' group.
