Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[TypeConverterAttribute(typeof(InfiniteTimeSpanConverter))]
[TimeSpanValidatorAttribute(MinValueString = "00:00:00", MaxValueString = "10675199.02:48:05.4775807")]
[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("urlMetadataSlidingExpiration", DefaultValue = "00:01:00")]
public TimeSpan UrlMetadataSlidingExpiration { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan
A value that determines how ASP.NET caches URL metadata. The default value is 1 minute.

An example of URL metadata is information in the Web.config file about security restrictions that apply to a particular URL.

The following values have special meanings:

  • "Infinite". URL metadata is cached without a sliding expiration. This means caching continues until the server uses the maximum allotted amount of memory. This is the default behavior in ASP.NET 3.5 and earlier versions.

  • "00:00:00". URL metadata is not cached. The metadata is regenerated with every request. This is more efficient for scenarios where the same URL is rarely requested.
