After a comprehensive review of the prototype and some additional discussions with gkronber, we decided not to implement custom membership and role providers but to use SqlMembershipProvider and SqlRoleProvider instead.

This has several benefits:

  • SqlMembershipProvider and SqlRoleProvider are provided by the .NET framework and are therefore well tested.
  • We do not have to implement custom authentication services as such services are also already provided by the .NET framework.
  • Clients for these services are also included in the .NET framework which have additional functionality (e.g. support for offline authentication).

but also some drawbacks:

  • A specific database according to the ASP.NET data model has to be used to store users and roles.
  • Roles cannot be structured hierarchically.

However, in gkronber's and my opinion the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

I wrote a small Howto? which describes how to set up an environment for local development of HeuristicLab services.
