    How to login a member via API that is passing login and password ( hashed ) via code and not input from user?

    Hi Biagio

    If your code is in a macro partial view or controller or class inheriting from one of the special Umbraco base controllers / classes eg SurfaceController

    Then you will have access to the MembershipHelper helpers via the Members instance.

    https://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Reference/Querying/MemberShipHelper/

    and therefore:

    Members.Login("username", "password");
    

    should do it!

    If you are in a custom class you can create a reference to the MembershipHelper using:

    var memberShipHelper = new Umbraco.Web.Security.MembershipHelper(Umbraco.Web.UmbracoContext.Current);
    

    regards

    Marc

    Hi, Marc,

    Thank you. The problem is if the password is hashed.

    Ahh Biagio I see;

    So do you need to know, given that you have the hash, how to compare this hash to the entry in the database table ?

    or are you pretty much at the stage where you just want to log the person in ?

    If so I have a feeling:

    FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage("username", false);
    

    or

    FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie("username", false);
    

    will create the authentication cookie for the user, and it will be as if they just logged in.

    Marc was bang on the money, you need to set the AuthCookie session wih:

    System.Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie('Username', true);
    

    Once I've tidied my code I'll post a full example
