In particular, we created a page that listed the contents of the current directory.
Anyone could visit this page, but only authenticated users could view the files' contents and only Tito could delete the files.
Technically, I didn't need to specify values for these attributes since I just assigned them to their default values, but I put them here to make it explicitly clear that I am not using persistent cookies and that the cookie is both encrypted and validated. Henceforth, the Roles framework will cache the users' roles in cookies.
If the user's browser does not support cookies, or if their cookies are deleted or lost, somehow, it's no big deal – the Note Microsoft's Patterns & Practices group discourages using persistent role cache cookies.
The Login View control, which renders different output for authenticated and anonymous users, can be configured to display different content based on the logged in user's roles.
And the Roles API includes methods for determining the logged in user's roles.
For more information on cookies, how they work, and their various properties, read this Cookies tutorial. The path attribute enables a developer to limit the scope of a cookie to a particular directory hierarchy.
Let's create a page that lists all of the user accounts in the system in a Grid View.As soon as a match is found, the user is granted or denied access, depending on if the match was found in an URL authorization makes it easy to specify coarse authorization rules that state what identities are permitted and which ones are denied from viewing a particular page (or all pages in a folder and its subfolders).However, in certain cases we may want to allow all users to visit a page, but limit the page's functionality based on the visiting user's roles.If the Roles framework is configured to cache the user's roles in a cookie, the class to determine the user's roles. Figure 2: The User's Role Information Can Be Stored in a Cookie to Improve Performance (Click to view full-size image) By default, the role cache cookie mechanism is disabled.It can be enabled through the Note The configuration settings listed in Table 1 specify the properties of the resulting role cache cookie.
