'Declaration
Public Shared Sub AddUsersToRole ( _
	usernames As String(), _
	roleName As String _
)

Parameters

usernames
Type: System.String()

A string array of user names to add to the specified role.

roleName
Type: System.String

The role to add the specified user names to.

ExceptionCondition
System.ArgumentNullException

roleName is Nothing.

One of the elements in usernames is Nothing.

System.ArgumentException

roleName is an empty string or contains a comma (,).

-or-

One of the elements in usernames is an empty string or contains a comma (,).

System.Configuration.Provider.ProviderException

Role management is not enabled.

The AddUsersToRole method calls the default role provider to associate the specified users with the specified role at the data source.

If your application uses the SqlRoleProvider class, the database updates that are performed during the call to the AddUsersToRoles method are made within a transaction. If an error is encountered, such as a user name that is already in a specified role, the transaction is rolled back and no updates are performed.

NoteNote

User names and role names cannot contain commas.

The following code example adds one or more users to a role or removes a user from a role based on user input. For an example of a Web.config file that enables role management, see Roles.
