You must call the assert method on the same tier, usually the server tier, that the corresponding CodeAccessPermission.demand method is called on before the protected API is executed. Call a method on the server tier from one of the following:

The RunAsPermission class is designed to check permissions for the runAs function. For a list of all APIs protected by permissions, see Secured APIs.

  • A server static method

    –or–

  • A class instance method that is set to run on the server by using the RunOn class property

The following code example shows a new instance of the RunAsPermission class.

The assert method is called to declare that the code can then call the runAs function to run the EventJobDueDate.:runDueDateEventsForUser method in the security context of another user.

server static void main(Args args) 
{ 
    RunAsPermission _perm; 
    UserId          _runAsUser; 
    SysUserInfo     _userInfo; 
 
    _userInfo = SysUserInfo::find(); 
    _runAsUser = _userInfo.Id; 
    _perm = new RunAsPermission(_runAsUser); 
    _perm.assert(); 
 
    // Invoke the protected API. 
    RunAs(_runAsUser, classnum(EventJobDueDate), "runDueDateEventsForUser"); 
 
    // Optionally, call revertAssert() to limit the scope of assert. 
    CodeAccessPermission::revertAssert(); 
}
