Property Value

Type: System.String
A string that authorizes a Web Part to be added to a Web page. The default value is String.Empty.

The Web Part infrastructure does not implement any default behavior for the AuthorizationFilter property. However, the property is provided so that you can assign an arbitrary string value to a custom Web Part. This property can be checked by SPWebPartManager during its AuthorizeWebPart event to determine whether the control can be added to the page.
