RoleManagerSection Class

Defines configuration settings that are used to support the role management infrastructure of Web applications. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Web.Configuration
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
public sealed class RoleManagerSection : ConfigurationSection
public final class RoleManagerSection extends ConfigurationSection
public final class RoleManagerSection extends ConfigurationSection
Not applicable.

The RoleManagerSection class provides a way to programmatically access and modify the content of the roleManager section of the configuration file.

This section provides two code examples. The first demonstrates how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the RoleManagerSection class. The second demonstrates how to use the RoleManagerSection type.

The following configuration file example shows how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the RoleManagerSection class.

<system.web>
  <roleManager 
    enabled="false" 
    cacheRolesInCookie="false" 
    cookieName=".ASPXROLES" cookieTimeout="30"
    cookiePath="/" cookieRequireSSL="false"
    cookieSlidingExpiration="true" createPersistentCookie="false"
    cookieProtection="All" 
    defaultProvider="AspNetSqlRoleProvider"
    maxCachedResults="25"  >
    <providers>
      <add 
        name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider"
        connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer" 
        applicationName="/"
        type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider, System.Web,
          Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral,
          PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
      <add 
        name="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider" 
        applicationName="/"
        type="System.Web.Security.WindowsTokenRoleProvider, System.Web, 
          Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, 
          PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
    </providers>
  </roleManager>
</system.web>

The following code example demonstrates how to use the RoleManagerSection type.
