I have just installed SharePoint 2013 on my system. And at the time of login it shows me login screen like below.
enter image description here

Requirement is- I do not want to implement Form Based Authentication. I just want to turn above dialog into a Form where user can login using AD account.


This is the default Integrated Windows Authentication dialog. You see this dialog on non-IE browsers (or IE browsers if the SharePoint site is not set in the Intranet zone or if the SharePoint site is not allowed to pass through Windows credentials). To use Windows Authentication, you will have to utilize this login dialog. If you would like to use a form for authentication, you can utilize forms based authentication as UserSP has suggested. You can still utilize Windows Authentication as a provider for Forms based authentication, this seems like the route that would best suit your needs.

  • Isn't there a way so that we can create form which authenticates a user using AD credentials?

  • The hyperlink in my post describes how to create a form that authenticates against AD credentials. Jul 12 '16 at 17:58
  • But how can we modify Global.asax file in a SharePoint Project? Since we only have Application Pages there.

You have to create a new .aspx page which inherits from Microsoft.SharePoint.IdentityModel.Pages.FormsSignInPage class.

I believe this is something with respect to how browser behave(authentication). Here is stackoverflow link, this might give you an insight and some odd approaches


This dialog is part of Browser. When you enabled windows authentication on web application, application will allow to authenticate user with windows credentials through following link:


The physical location of file is:

"Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\IDENTITYMODEL\WINDOWS\default.aspx"

The page inherits from Microsoft.SharePoint.IdentityModel.Pages.WindowsSignInPage. You can disassemble the dll "Microsoft.SharePoint.IdentityModel" and see how it is processing the request.
