Custom roles with AD and windows authentication

P: n/a
TS
What are my options to implement custom roles and still authenticate with
active directory and windows authentication? I haven't seen any articles
saying how to do it, usually it uses forms authentication to do it.

Where are your roles defined

I think you can intercept the Application_Authenticate event in your global.asa

Hi TS,

As for where to store the custom roles, I think there are several means,
such as
1. store in xml configure file.
2. store in Active Directory
3. store in database

The #1 is suitable for small and simple set of users and roles or test
condition.
#2 is a good approach and commonly used because it makes use of the
existing established accounts and roles within the OS/Domain but if is not
very flexible for defining custom user roles.

#3 Database is a good solutoin for define custom users and roles, which
could be separated form the OS or Domain's account or groups.

Just some of my opinions. Hope helps. Thanks.
