.Net Application with MySqlMemebershipProvider and Okta


#1

Hi ,

My .Net ASP web application currently works using MySqlMembershipProvider (which inherits System.Web.Security.MembershipProvider) and EntityFramework to handle session and authorisation. I have seen some tutorials and read articles provided as well and manged to get the Mvc4MusicStore example project working. I noticed that the OktaMembershipProvider in the example inherits from WebMatrix.WebData.SimpleMembershipProvider.

In my scenario to have the option for the application to authorise from okta (while retaining the current permissions and roles I already have to the users) do I need to implement my own OktaMembershipProvider which inhertis from System.Web.Security.MembershipProvider in order to achieve both functionality or is there a provider which already exists?

Thanks in advance for you help

Hi.
To speed up your development you might want to look at the libraries provided bij Anders Abel .
We use it for SAML2 and Membership Provider implementation. see here
