View a List of User Providers (IIS 7)

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

To manage user providers easily, you can view a list that contains all membership user providers for a particular configuration level.

You can also group providers by scope to see quickly which user providers apply at the current configuration level and which user providers are inherited from a parent level.
