The abstract base class from which workflow roles are derived.

Namespace:  System.Workflow.Activities
Assembly:  System.Workflow.Activities (in System.Workflow.Activities.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("The System.Workflow.* types are deprecated.  Instead, please use the new types from System.Activities.*")]
public abstract class WorkflowRole

The WorkflowRole type exposes the following members.

Protected methodWorkflowRoleWhen implemented in a derived class, initializes a new instance of the WorkflowRole class.

Public propertyNameWhen implemented in a derived class, gets or sets the name of this WorkflowRole.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetIdentitiesWhen implemented in a derived class gets the identities contained by this WorkflowRole.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIncludesIdentityWhen implemented in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this role contains the specified identity.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)


This material discusses types and namespaces that are obsolete. For more information, see Deprecated Types in Windows Workflow Foundation 4.5.

You can derive classes from the WorkflowRole class in order to implement role-based access to your workflows and their activities. The WebWorkflowRole class and the ActiveDirectoryRole class derive from the WorkflowRole class.
