On-Premise CRM with Live Id Authentication for Customer Self Service Portal RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I am in the middle of an XRM type project for a large client.  One of the requirements for the project is to have a self service portal.  I have been attempting to configure the portal for a couple of days, but am not able to find clear answers to the following questions:

    1. Is it possible to configure a self service portal against CRM 2011 (which uses IFD) to authenticate using Windows Live Id?

    2.  If so, is the only mechanism to go through Azure CS?

    3. Do I need a subscription to Azure Cloud Services to make this happen?  If we are only planning on using ACS for authentication (on premise deployment), what is the cost associated with this?

    I am very confused and will greatly appreciate any help I can get.
