Membership provider changes after successful login (multiple membership providers)
Posted on 2010-11-08
I have a site in which I'm intending to use multiple membership providers. I'm using my own custom membership provider to provide access to several data stores depending on the section in which the user's information resides.
The actual login functions correctly using the built-in ASP.NET Login component in which I've manually specified the membership provider it should validate against. When I run a trace on it's actions, I can see that it attempts the 'validateuser' against the correct data store and continues to redirect the user to their applicable section.
The problem is that once they are logged in and the site (or I) call 'GetUser' to get the users information or permissions, the membership provider reverts to the site's default provider.
In my custom membership provider I'm only overriding the methods for GetUser and Validate user which is working perfectly fine for a singular membership provider, but not when using a different provider.
How can I ensure that the correct membership provider is retained with the user's membership details? Is there a method that I need to override/append in order to achieve what I'm looking for?
