Configures a role for an application or component. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: System.EnterpriseServices (in System.EnterpriseServices.dll)
You can use the to add roles to an application, and to associate them with components. When is applied to an assembly as a whole, it ensures that the role exists in the application configuration (COM+ catalog). You can add members of the role using the COM+ Explorer.
When applied to a component, the ensures that the role exists in the application configuration, and associates the target component with the role.
By default, created roles have no members. If the SetEveryoneAccess property is set to true, the Everyone user group is automatically added to the role. This is best for all-access type roles that are given minimal control over the system.
Security roles can be specified at the component level, per interface and per method. As with other method attributes, security configuration is not currently shared between interface definition and method implementation.
The following code example demonstrates the use of this attribute to associate a role with an assembly that contains ServicedComponent classes.
