I have a SharePoint 2013 server set up to use FBA through active directory. I've set up the claims providers following Microsoft guidelines from TechNet Blog

On a site collection using SharePoint 2013 experience, the people picker works correctly. AD accounts show up under the Active Directory category, and Forms Authentication accounts show up under forms auth.

2k13 Mode

However, on sites running Sharepoint 2010 compatibility, both accounts will show up under "organizations".

2K10 Mode

I am guessing that the configuration is a little different for 2010 compatibility, however, I have been unsuccessful in my search for any documentation, any ideas?

  • This is a major issue because the FBA Management pack isnt working on the 2010 compatibility site, among other issues. – Matt Bear May 10 '13 at 23:18
  • upon continued testing, this actually occurs whenever there is any site collection made on the web application, 2010 or 2013 – Matt Bear May 11 '13 at 0:27
  • Hi, @Matt Bear, old question, but web have exactly the same issue... Did you resolve it? – Sergei Sergeev Apr 8 '14 at 15:34
  • Yeah, I upgraded all the sites to 2013 experience... So no, not really a solution. – Matt Bear May 1 '14 at 18:42
