Once successfully authenticated using OID authenticator, the return username values which goes into the user variable is different for XMLPSERVER url compared to ANALYTICS URL.

In the xmlpserver URL the authenticated username is always in lowercase irrespective of how entered during the logon. screen.
What this means is during the SQLGroupProvider authorization to get the group details it is not finding an entry in the table.
When adding an entry with all lower case username the XMLPSERVER url shows the correct groups.

For example: If entering everything uppercase then it passes that value to the groups table to get the group info.
