Can´t get AD groups to authenticate via web.config

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by John Boghossian, Nov 12, 2003.

  1. We are trying to limit access for an intranet application to certain people
    based on AD groups they belong to.

    When we add a key to <allow roles="domain\group" /> it doesn´t work but it
    works with explicit users as <allow user="domain\loginid" />

    Extract from our web.config
    <identity impersonate="true" />
    <authentication mode="Windows" />
    <authorization>
    <allow users="domain\user" roles="domain\group" />
    <deny users="*" />
    </authorization>

    Anyone that knows what could be wrong?

    Regards
    John Boghossian

    Hi John,

    In web.config, The machine name or domain name AND the group name are case
    sensitive. The group name MUST match case EXACTLY as it is in Windows. You
    may double check if it is the problem.
