Using LDAPCP_Custom, the configuration page under Security doesn't work.

Happy New Year!

Thank you for a great tool.

After I configured a little bit in code, it can solve my problem that I cannot search in multiple AD by adding more LDAP connection string, but there is still having only one problem is that I cannot search group in any LDAP/AD.

I was just wondering after I installed LDAPCP_custom for my SharePoint Central Admin, I haven't see the LDAPCP Configuration section under the Security tab. Until I installed LDAPCP,which is not for development, then the LDAPCP Configuration section is showed.

However, due to I need to use LDAPCP_Custom so that I can add more LDAP connection string, it shows an error message in red above the page:

LDAPCP is currently not associated with any TrustedLoginProvider. It is mandatory because it cannot create permission for a trust if it is not associated to it.
Visit http://ldapcp.codeplex.com/ to see how to associate it.
Settings on this page will not be available as long as LDAPCP will not associated to a trut.

Actually when I use normal LDAPCP, I can search group in AD by editing claim type (I'm using "http://schemas.microsoft.com/ws/2008/06/identity/claims/roles"). But in LDAPCP_Custom, I cannot edit claim type due to the configuration page doesn't work. And I cannot find the way to edit claim type in code.

So I have 2 questions which need your help,
  1. How to associate with "LCAPCP Configuration" page when I use LDAPCP_Custom?
  2. If No.1 is not possible, how to configure claim type as I mentioned in code?,
Can you please guide me an example because I'm not developer and don't know much in SharePoint.

Hi,

Now I can solve this problem in code.

Reference from this page : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.security.claims.claimtypes(v=vs.110).aspx
I just edit the code by changing from claimType=nsmsclaims.ClaimTypes.WindowsAccountName to claimType=nsmsclaims.ClaimTypes,Role in LDAPCP_Custom.cs
And it's already meet my result.

Thank you :D

But another problem, I cannot give permission to the Domain Users group of another domain.
i.e. I can call Domain Users group only the domain that SharePoint installed.
I just want to search with prefix such as domain_name\group_name because I have many domains federated in this farm.

How can I solve this issue?
