I'm trying to extend existing User Profile Template with some project specific fields. I thought it will be handy to do it by template inheritance. But seems like only fields directly declared in Profile Template are visible in User Manager. Please take a look on the screens below.

  • We have _UserProfile which holds base set of fields,
  • I created interface template _Test_UserProfile with project specific fields.
    • I created Test_UserProfile template that inherits from _UserProfile and _Test_UserProfile _ I added one field directly in Test_UserProfile
    • then I created Profile Item that inherits from Test_UserProfile
    • when I create user that uses my new Profile only directly declared fields are visible

Do you guys know if there is any way to make this work?


Profile template builder contains one directly declared field

Profile inherits from 2 other Profile Templates

In User Editor, profile tab, you can see only directly declated field

Can you try bellow solution :

1)Copy the attached Sitecore.Support.350672 file to the bin folder

2)Open the Website\sitecore\shell\Applications\Security\EditUser\EditUser.xaml.xml file and implement the below change:


<Sitecore.Shell.Applications.Security.EditUser Application="Security/Edit User" x:inherits="Sitecore.Shell.Applications.Security.EditUser.EditUserPage,Sitecore.Client">-->

and add next line of code:

<Sitecore.Shell.Applications.Security.EditUser Application="Security/Edit User" x:inherits="Sitecore.Support.Shell.Applications.Security.EditUser.EditUserPage, Sitecore.Support.350672">
  • Thanks @SitecoreClimber, this looked promising but unfortunatelly Im getting error: The class includes the field 'TabStrip', but its type (ComponentArt.Web.UI.TabStrip) is not compatible with the type of control (Sitecore.Web.UI.HtmlControls.Tabstrip). (method: Sitecore.Web.UI.XamlSharp.Xaml.ControlCompilers.ControlCompiler.Bind(CompilerOptions options, Type controlType)). Any idea what it might be? My sitecore version is Sitecore.NET 8.2 (rev. 160729) if thats any help

  • I compared EditUserPage.cs that you sent me to the one in my sitecore version and looks like yours is using ComponentArt.Web.UI library. Does this fix come from public Support ticket?
