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

[AspNetHostingPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Level = AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
public sealed class RoleManagerModule : IHttpModule

The RoleManagerModule class is used to assign a RolePrincipal to the User property of the Current HttpContext.

When a request completes, the RoleManagerModule refreshes the roles cookie that contains cached role information. If the User property is of type RolePrincipal, and that RolePrincipal indicates that its cached role list has been modified by setting the CachedListChanged property to true, the RoleManagerModule will update the roles cookie that contains cached role information.

This class is not intended to be used directly from your code.
