I have a custom claims provider which adds some claims from an external system (eg. Email, Fullname, etc.). This works fine, but i want to display the value from the fullname-claim on the top-right corner and not the name from the AD. Is there a way to set this name in the Provider or elsewhere?

Also i want to view the claims on the user information page if its possible.

Well, i sort of figured it out. There are two ways:

  1. Write a HttpModule which gets the data from the claims or the external system and updates the current user (ugly)

  2. Create an external content type with a GetItem-Operation and configure a new User Profile Synchronization Connection which uses this BDC. (See References)
