Overview

The Membership PowerShell Provider provides a dynamic and flexible front-end to ASP.NET Membership user credentials and identity management.

The canned Membership management tools do not provide a rich level of functionality. Specifically, they have several severe limitations:
  • they allow you to work with only one user at a time;
  • they allow you to locate users by username or email address only.

In order to overcome these limitations, developers typically add special-purpose pages to their web sites. The primary purpose of the Membership PowerShell Provider is to provide a stable, useful, and reusable platform to manage ASP.NET Membership. The provider leverages the innate capabilities of PowerShell to perform near-Herculean feats on your user store.

Current Limitations

At present, the Membership PowerShell Provider supports only SQL Server-based membership stores. Support for Active Directory and custom membership stores is on the roadmap; if you have a particular need, please let us know.
