    Create member then login programmatically

    Hi all,

    As the topic title says, I'm trying to create a member and then login programmatically.It would seem that when I call the ValidateUser function it can't login the newly created member and always returns false. The reason I'm trying to do this is because we currently authenticate via an external service - I then create a one time member login that get's deleted once the session ends.

    Any help is greatly appreciated - code snippet below.

    var memberService = Services.MemberService;
    //create umbraco member and set the password as a random Guid
    var member = CreateUmbracoMember();
    if(memberService.Exists(member.Id))
    {
      if (Membership.ValidateUser(member.Username, member.RawPasswordValue))
      {
       //Always returns false
      }
    }

    Hello,

    You can login a member programmatically by doing the following:

    System.Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(email, true);

    On a SurfaceController there is also the property Members which represents an instance of Umbraco.Web.Security.MembershipHelper

    if(this.Members.Login(model.Username, model.Password)){
    
        // Do what you want.
    }
