public bool InheritSecurity { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
Booleantrue if the area inherits security; otherwise, false.

Never set the InheritSecurity property to false to force inheritance breakage.

Set InheritSecurity to true when reestablishing the security inheritance to the parent area.
