Do you use this Windows Live ID Authentication for SharePoint solution on your site or do you know of any site? Please leave a comment this thread.

I plan to use this solution on my extranet - which is located on the internet.  Many of my employee/users do not have Active Directory accounts - so this would be a great solution for them - if I can get it to work :-)

Great!
What parts doesn't work for you?

I can't figure out how to get it to add a Live user to the site.  I added it to the LiveProfiles list - not sure what to do next?

The Live users are automatically added to the LiveProfiles list once they log in. You should not add them manually.

Hi,

if you have any good suggestions or features, then I'll gladly consider including them into SPWLA.

Hi,

we have decided we probably won't be using WLA - the main reason is that when someone new requests access, it only sends the admin their UUID - which looks like some kind of GUID - no way to identify who they are - if there were a feature that would reconcile this with their actual Live ID, it would make a world of difference. Thanks. Hope all is well.

Nick,

I'm sad to hear that you abandon SPWLA :-)

Windows Live ID only provides the application with a UUID (unique to the user and application) and that's the way it works.

No problem - I appreciate your help - and you have great tips on Twitter!

Hi all,

The Identification parts will be enhanced in upcoming versions and will be an option for the administrator to set up. This first release will always ask for the identification until the user filled out the form whenever he or she logs in.

I guess I don't understand how it works now - when a new user requests access using WLA - all the administrator gets is a request from some huge string of characters - how do they know who this person is?

ok - now I get it.

Hi
Did you read How to identify Windows Live ID users and give permission to them?
wictor not currently implement this in SPWLA but you can use Shetab WLA in mead while.
>>When a new user requests access using WLA - all the administrator gets is a request from some huge string of characters - how do they know who this person is
It so simple, administrator just need to open ProfileList and search that ID, they will find valid what this id belong to. You just didn’t its name and email via "SharePoint request address email system", maybe wictor implement it in feature but please attention that SharePoint just don’t tell the email in "request access email" and you can find it from ProfileList by simple search.
I recommend you try Shetab WLA trial version until wicotr implement it in SPWLA and see how it work.
Please feel free to ask me which part you don’t understand?
