This topic describes new functionality in ADO.NET Data Services that is available as an update to the .NET Framework version 3.5 Service Pack 1. You can download and install the update from the Microsoft Download Center.

When you specify a value of an asterisk (*) for the name parameter, permissions are set for all entity sets that do not have the permissions explicitly set.

This example shows the code-behind page for a Northwind-based data service, with access granted to selected entity sets.

using System.Data.Services;
using System.Linq;
using System.ServiceModel.Web;

namespace NorthwindService
    public class Northwind : DataService<NorthwindEntities>
        // This method is called only once to initialize service-wide policies. 
        public static void InitializeService(DataServiceConfiguration config)
            // Make certain entity sets writable.
            config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("Customers", EntitySetRights.All); 
            config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("Employees", EntitySetRights.All);
            config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("Orders", EntitySetRights.All);
            config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("Order_Details", EntitySetRights.All);
            config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("Products", EntitySetRights.All);

            // Make the remaining entity sets read-only.
            config.SetEntitySetAccessRule("*", EntitySetRights.AllRead);
