/** @property */

Property Value

true if authenticated users can be redirected to URLs in other applications; otherwise false. The default is false.

The EnableCrossAppRedirects property value sets the enableCrossAppRedirects attribute of the forms section in the authentication section of a configuration.

The EnableCrossAppRedirects property is checked by the EnableCrossAppRedirects method when the redirection is to a URL that is not in the current application. If EnableCrossAppRedirects is true, then the redirect is performed; otherwise the browser is redirected to the page defined in the DefaultUrl property.


When performing redirects across applications, you must ensure that several of the attributes in the form configuration section are duplicated across the authenticated applications. For more information and an example, see Forms Authentication Across Applications.

The following code example shows how to access the EnableCrossAppRedirects property. Refer to the code example in the FormsAuthenticationConfiguration class topic to learn how to get the section.

// Get the current EnableCrossAppRedirects.
bool currentEnableCrossAppRedirects = 

// Set the EnableCrossAppRedirects.
formsAuthentication.EnableCrossAppRedirects = false;
