DirectoryEntry.Password Property

Sets the password to use when authenticating the client.

Namespace:  System.DirectoryServices
Assembly:  System.DirectoryServices (in System.DirectoryServices.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
[DSDescriptionAttribute("DSPassword")]
public string Password { set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The password to use when authenticating the client.

You can set the Username and Password properties to specify alternate credentials with which to access the information in Active Directory Domain Services. Any other DirectoryEntry objects retrieved from this instance (for example, through Children) are automatically created with the same alternate credentials.

The following example demonstrates the Username and Password properties of the DirectoryEntry class. This example gets the user-specified DirectoryEntry and the Path of all its Children.

String myADSPath = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,
         DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com";
 
// Create an Instance of DirectoryEntry.
DirectoryEntry myDirectoryEntry = new DirectoryEntry(myADSPath);
myDirectoryEntry.Username = UserName;
myDirectoryEntry.Password = SecurelyStoredPassword;

// Get the Child ADS objects.
Console.WriteLine("The Child ADS objects are:");
foreach(DirectoryEntry myChildDirectoryEntry in myDirectoryEntry.Children)
   Console.WriteLine(myChildDirectoryEntry.Path);
