ASPNETDB as Additional Profile Provider Configuration Guide


Use this guide along with the Data Tab Configuration guide to configure a SecureAuth IdP realm that uses ASPNETDB as an additional Profile Provider.


1. Have an on-premises ASPNETDB data store (refer to ASPNETDB Configuration Guide for configuration steps to create the database)

2. Designate a service account with read access (and optional write access) for SecureAuth IdP

ASPNETDB Configuration Steps


1. In the Profile Provider Settings section, select True from the Same as Above dropdown to copy the data store integration from the Membership Connection Settings section for use in profile connection; or select False if that directory is only used for the membership connection.

2. Select ASPNETDB from the Default Profile Provider dropdown if ASPNETDB is to be used as the default profile provider


  • If another ASPNETDB data store is configured in the Membership Connection Settings section, and True is selected from the Same as Above dropdown, then those settings appear in the Profile Connection Settings (below) and must be modified to reflect the settings of the new ASPNETDB data store

  • Only one ASPNETDB can be utilized for profile connection

  • If another directory is selected from the Default Profile Provider dropdown, then ASPNETDB must be selected from Source dropdown in the Profile Fields section for the SecureAuth IdP Properties that are mapped to ASPNETDB fields
