public static void AddUserToRoles(
	string username,
	string[] roleNames
)

Parameters

username

The user name to add to the specified roles.

roleNames
Type: System.String[]

A string array of roles to add the specified user name to.

ExceptionCondition
System.ArgumentNullException

One of the roles in roleNames is null.

System.ArgumentException

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

-or-

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

System.Configuration.Provider.ProviderException

Role management is not enabled.

The AddUserToRoles method calls the default role provider to associate the specified user with the specified roles at the data source.

If your application uses the SqlRoleProvider class, the database updates that are performed during the call to the AddUserToRoles 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 a user to one or more roles. For an example of a Web.config file that enables role management, see Roles.
