ASP.NET MVC 4 Bulk Add New Users

I recently developed a website to replace the built in ASP.NET Configuration Website Administration Tool provided by Microsoft and Visual Studio.

Source available here: https://github.com/StoneFinch/SmpMaintenance

Direct link to download source code: https://github.com/StoneFinch/SmpMaintenance/archive/master.zip


This tool has the ability to add new users to a ASP.NET MVC 4 website in bulk.  For example, if you have a list of usernames and passwords that you want to set up new accounts for, you can use the "Bulk Add New Users" functionality.



Users can also be added to Roles via this page.  Multiple Roles are separated by spaces.


Hope this helps,
Aaron

The built in ASP.NET Configuration Website Administration Tool provided by Microsoft and Visual Studio left something to be desired. I have developed an alternative that can be used with ASP.NET MVC 4 SimpleMembershipProvider.

Code available here: https://github.com/StoneFinch/SmpMaintenance

Current functionality at the time of this writing:
  - Add New Users
  - Bulk Add New Users
  - Search Users
  - Add New Roles
  - Edit Existing Users
  - Reset User Password (on Edit User page)
  - Add Users to Roles
  - Remove Users from Roles


Hope this helps,

ASP.NET MVC 4 SimpleMembershipProvider, Web Security Roles Add User To Role SQL, Remove User From Role SQL

Using SQL Profiler, below is the SQL that is executed when the ASP.NET MVC 4 SimpleMembershipProvider's System.Web.Security.Roles.AddUserToRole() method and RemoveUserFromRole() method are called:

Text below in bold is dynamic and represents the UserName and RoleName property passed into the AddUserToRole()  method (or the UserId,RoleId associated with the UserName,RoleName).


Roles.AddUserToRole("UserName", "RoleName");
exec sp_executesql N'SELECT [UserId] FROM [UserProfile] WHERE (UPPER([UserName]) = @0)',N'@0 nvarchar(25)',@0=N'USERNAME'


exec sp_executesql N'SELECT RoleId FROM webpages_Roles WHERE (RoleName = @0)',N'@0 nvarchar(5)',@0=N'RoleName'
