SettingsAllowAnonymousAttribute Class

Identifies whether a profile property can be set or accessed for an anonymous user.

Namespace:  System.Web.Profile
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public sealed class SettingsAllowAnonymousAttribute : Attribute

The SettingsAllowAnonymousAttribute class is used to identify whether a property of a custom profile implementation can be accessed if the user is an anonymous user. For information about enabling anonymous identification, see the documentation provided for the anonymousIdentification configuration element.

If no SettingsAllowAnonymousAttribute is specified for a profile property, anonymous access of the profile property is not allowed.

A custom profile implementation is a class that inherits from the ProfileBase abstract class and defines properties for the user profile that are not specified in the profile configuration element. You can specify a custom user-profile type in the application's Web.config file with the inherits attribute of the profile configuration element as shown in the following example.





connectionString="Data Source=localhost;Integrated Security=SSPI;Initial Catalog=aspnetdb;" />



<authentication mode="Forms" >






<deny users="?" />


<profile inherits="Samples.AspNet.Profile.EmployeeProfile"



<clear />





description="SQL Profile Provider for Sample"/>





description="SQL Profile Provider for Employee Info"/>



<add name="GarmentSize" />





The following code example defines a class that inherits from the ProfileBase to create a custom profile. The type of the custom profile is specified in the inherits attribute of the profile configuration element in the Web.config file for an application.

using System;
using System.Web.Profile;

namespace Samples.AspNet.Profile
  public class EmployeeProfile : ProfileBase
    public string Department
      get { return base["EmployeeDepartment"].ToString(); }
      set { base["EmployeeDepartment"] = value; }

    public EmployeeInfo Details
      get { return (EmployeeInfo)base["EmployeeInfo"]; }
      set { base["EmployeeInfo"] = value; }


  public class EmployeeInfo
    public string Name;
    public string Address;
    public string Phone;
    public string EmergencyContactName;
    public string EmergencyContactAddress;
    public string EmergencyContactPhone;
