Setting Web Permissions

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Using the Web permissions facilities of Visual Studio, you can control who can gain access to your Web project files and what level of access individuals have to the application. The permissions you set in Visual Studio are applied to Windows entities (folders, users, groups, and so on.) They are similar to equivalent permissions you can set in Internet Information Services (IIS). You can choose to set individual rights or simply inherit the rights of the Web folder that the application is stored in. For more information, see the topics on permissions in the IIS documentation (http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/en/server/iis/).

To inherit the rights for a Web project

  1. From the Project menu, click Web Projects, and then select Web Permissions to open the Web Permissions dialog box.
    Note   You can use the Web permissions facility of Visual Studio only if the Web access method of your project is FrontPage Server Extensions. For more information, see Web Access Methods.
  2. In the Settings tab, select Use same permissions as the root Web server.

To set individual rights for a Web project

  1. From the Project menu, click Web Projects, and then select Web Permissions to open the Web Permissions dialog box.
    Note   You can use the Web permissions facility of Visual Studio only if the Web access method of your project is FrontPage Server Extensions. For more information, see Web Access Methods.
  2. Add and set your user's access by doing the following:
    1. In the Users tab, click the Add button to add new users to the list.
    2. Select the user you added and click the Edit button to open the Edit Users dialog box.
    3. Select the appropriate user access rights, and then click OK.
    4. In the Groups tab, click Add to add a user group to the list.
    5. Repeat for each user you want to add.
  3. Set the computer rights necessary as follows:
  4. In the Computers tab, click Add to add a new computer.
    1. In the Add Computer dialog box, type in the IP address for the desired computer, select the required access level, and then click OK.
