Represents an abstraction of an access control entry (ACE) that defines an access rule for a pipe.

public sealed class PipeAccessRule : AccessRule

System_CAPS_pubmethodPipeAccessRule(IdentityReference, PipeAccessRights, AccessControlType)

Initializes a new instance of the PipeAccessRule class with the specified identity, pipe access rights, and access control type.

System_CAPS_pubmethodPipeAccessRule(String, PipeAccessRights, AccessControlType)

Initializes a new instance of the PipeAccessRule class with the specified identity, pipe access rights, and access control type.


Gets the AccessControlType value associated with this AccessRule object.(Inherited from AccessRule.)


Gets the access mask for this rule.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)


Gets the IdentityReference to which this rule applies.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)


Gets the value of flags that determine how this rule is inherited by child objects.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)


Gets a value indicating whether this rule is explicitly set or is inherited from a parent container object.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)


Gets the PipeAccessRights flags that are associated with the current PipeAccessRule object.


Gets the value of the propagation flags, which determine how inheritance of this rule is propagated to child objects. This property is significant only when the value of the InheritanceFlags enumeration is not None.(Inherited from AuthorizationRule.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

Access control rules define user account rights that determine which actions are allowed or disallowed on computers that are running Microsoft Windows.

The PipeAccessRule class represents an abstraction of an underlying access control entry (ACE) that specifies a user account, the type of access to provide (read, write, and so on), and whether to allow or deny that right. This class can also specify how access rules are propagated to child objects.

Use the PipeAccessRule class to create a new access rule. You can persist the rule using the PipeSecurity class.
