SkipAuthorization Property

HttpContext.SkipAuthorization Property


Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the UrlAuthorizationModule object should skip the authorization check for the current request.

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

public bool SkipAuthorization {
	[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand, ControlPrincipal = true)]

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if UrlAuthorizationModule should skip the authorization check; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The SkipAuthorization property is intended for advanced use by authentication modules that need to redirect to a page that allows anonymous connections. The Forms authentication module and Passport authentication module both set SkipAuthorization when redirecting to a configured logon page. Setting SkipAuthorization requires the ControlPrincipal flag to be set. For information about the ControlPrincipal flag, see SecurityPermissionFlag.
