    Umbraco 6.2 release and Custom Membership/Role Providers no longer work

    Just updated our dev environment from Umbraco 6.1.6 to Umbraco 6.2 and now our Custom Membership and Role providers no longer work. Please advise. We just spent about two weeks building this.

    Below is the error info:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Could someone with the Core/Admin team please elaborate on this in more detail and how we setup custom membership/role providers:

    Hi John

    Did you buy a license for your Umbraco solution? If so you should be able to get in touch with the HQ guys using ZenDesk where you're guaranteed support (according to the terms of the license you may have bought, which will probably give you a faster answer).

    However...did you have a look at the documentation for the new membership API? http://our.umbraco.org/documentation/Reference/Management-v6/Services/MemberService - When v7.1.1 was released there was made a lot of new stuff regarding members. The same changes have been made for 6.2.0...So perhaps you need to change some API calls in your code?

    If you don't have a confidence or complete license then I think the best way to make the HQ aware of this is by adding an issue to the tracker - there might be a bug and then it should of course be fixed. If there is no bug perhaps you'll get some valuable pointers.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers, Jan

    Jan - thanks for the help unfortunately, I work for a non-profit and we're not able to do the $4k license at this time. do you know if they offer per incident support?

    I'll take a look at the documentation. I also sent Niels, Shannon and Paul an email to see if they would offer up any tidbits of help but they will probably not since we're not commercial license users (I'll keep my fingers crossed though).

    I'll also submit an issue later this weekend as well.

    As always, thank you for the help and feedback.

    -JH

    Jan - was just looking through the source and I'm hoping I can just modify my existing membership provider to override the new 6.2/7.x Membership provider which I think I modeled after the 6.1.6 providers. thinking I can just override some of these methods:

    https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/blob/6.2.0/src/Umbraco.Web/Security/Providers/MembersMembershipProvider.cs

    https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/blob/61055380c5768be2e30ecb5f5760bf6b818fb153/src/Umbraco.Web/Security/Providers/UmbracoMembershipProvider.cs

    and also tie into the Membership helper as well if needed:

    https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/blob/6.2.0/src/Umbraco.Web/Security/MembershipHelper.cs

    we don't need to store member information or accounts in Umbraco since we have over 80k members or so from our external CRM... just need to override the basic Membership Provider and Roles check logic...

    Does this seem along the lines for 6.2? Also wondering if anything special needs to be done in the web.config different than 6.1.6 as well... thx again!

    Just like the exception states, it cannot find a membership provider with the name: "UmbracoMembershipProvider" which is what Umbraco requires. The name of this provider is specified in the web.config.

    You've most likely removed the default Umbraco membership provider and added your own to config with your own custom name. You have 2 options:

    • Change your membership provider name in config to be the one that Umbraco expects: UmbracoMembershipProvider
    • Duplicate your membership provider entry in config and make the name of your duplicated entry to be "UmbracoMembershipProvider"

    You're totally awesome Shannon! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    Initially, after I received the error I did try substituting the UmbracoMembershipProvider for my custom provider name but it still did not work so I was freaking and assumed I would have to completely re-do the all the providers from scratch.

    After you confirmed that's all I had to do, I went back in and changed my web.config info again. Still no go, so I went back into my membership and role provider classes and sure enough I had the Application Name also hard coded to my custom provider names. Changed those to the Umbraco defaults(UmbracoMembershipProvider and UmbracoRoleProvider) and BOOM! Back in Business!

    I can't tell you how much I appreciate the help Shannon - you rock! Below are snapshots of what I did change in case anyone is interested...

    Just a note for anyone else engaged in custom membership on v7.1.

    I've had a similarish issue but a different error message. Custom Membership Provider, added to Web.Config with a different name and set the defaultProvider to my new provider does not work (similar process worked fine in v4.7). But when I add my custom provider with the same name as the default Umbraco provider "UmbracoMembershipProvider", membership works fine. I'm guessing the default provider attribute is getting ignored.

    Not a big deal put just adding a note here as I've just spent the last hour being very confused by this :)

    The reason being is that we didn't want to interfere with a site install that requires a custom default membership provider, if someone set that to be differently from ours then Umbraco would fail whereas this way we just look for a membership provider with the correct name. This doesn't interfere with anything custom that a developer might require.
