Integrating Windows live ID with SharePoint 2010

Jan 21, 2010 at 6:21 PM

I am trying to integrate Windows live ID with SharePoint 2010 .

I was facing issue when i was trying to add a user as administrator to FBA web application .

The people picker doesn't pick the user with LiveID:UserName .

I have made necessary web.config entries in central administration web application.

    <PeoplePickerWildcards>
      <clear />
      <add key="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" value="%" />
      <add key="LiveID" value="%" />
    </PeoplePickerWildcards>

    <membership>
      <providers>
        <add name="LiveID" type="SPCS.WindowsLiveAuth.LiveMembershipProvider, SPCS.WindowsLiveAuth, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4b37e1a71dac8e81" />
      </providers>
    </membership>
    <roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider">
      <providers>
        <add name="LiveRoles" type="SPCS.WindowsLiveAuth.LiveRoleProvider, SPCS.WindowsLiveAuth, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4b37e1a71dac8e81" />
      </providers>
    </roleManager>

There is no need for any commercial solutions - SharePoint 2010 out-of-the-box supports Windows Live ID. Please do not post any commercials here.
