ProfileManager.GetAllProfiles Method (ProfileAuthenticationOption)


Retrieves user profile data for profiles in the data source.

Namespace:   System.Web.Profile
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public static ProfileInfoCollection GetAllProfiles(
	ProfileAuthenticationOption authenticationOption


Type: System.Web.Profile.ProfileAuthenticationOption

One of the ProfileAuthenticationOption enumeration values, specifying whether anonymous, authenticated, or both types of profiles are returned.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Profile.ProfileInfoCollection

A ProfileInfoCollection containing user profile information for all of the profiles in the data source.

The GetAllProfiles method is used to retrieve profile information from the data source for the application specified by the applicationName attribute in the configuration file. Use the authenticationOption parameter to specify whether you want only anonymous profiles, only authenticated profiles, or all profiles to be searched.

You can retrieve pages of ProfileInfo objects for user profiles using the overload for the GetAllProfiles method that takes additional pageIndex and pageSize parameters.

The GetAllProfiles method calls the GetAllProfiles method of the default profile provider. The default profile provider is specified using the defaultProvider attribute of the configuration element. If the user profile contains properties that are managed by a profile provider other than the default provider, the data source for the other profile provider is not searched. To find profiles that are managed by a profile provider other than the default provider, obtain a reference to the profile provider using the Providers property and call the GetAllProfiles method of the provider directly.

The following code example displays profile information for all of the profiles for the configured applicationName.
