FBA with library

  Asked By: Nilay    Date: Jun 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 815

I just changed to Form based authentication.
But I found strange things in library.

When I push 'new' in document library, MS-Word2007 opens with login
prompt "image" in new word file not real login prompt.

So I changed to Window Authentication again.
Then it is ok.

Anybody knows?

For FBA to work with anything other than the browser it requires using
persistent cookies, which is enabled via the checkbox on the login
screen. That said, this is generally considered to be a "bad idea" from
a security standpoint, since the cookie is persisted for anyone else who
then uses the same machine with the same login. This means if you do
this on a public kiosk or other shared machine you'd be leaving access
via your credentials for other users behind...
