    Users and members: best practices

    Hi.

    Are there any best practices or things to know when it comes to using and extending Umbraco's membership systems, and choosing which one to use?

    I'm looking at using Umbraco's user/member auth system for an application that involves a bunch of portals/intranet type things that are managed by a customer.

    • The customer is an administrator of their portal.
    • Generally they'll view and maybe edit a bit of content
    • They can also administer some data thats actually on a remote system that I have Umbraco talking to

    Should these customers be "Users" in Umbraco (but have their CMS access disabled), or is it more accepted to use the "Members" system instead, for all cases that don't involve the backoffice?

    Yes, generally you would use Members system if those members don't require any access to editing content in back-office. But if editing content via Umbraco interface is a requirement, then they'd have to be a User.

    Just a word of caution - I had an application once that created around 2K Umbraco backend users, and it performed terribly. Members, however, performs much better.
