ProfileManager.GetAllInactiveProfiles Method (ProfileAuthenticationOption, DateTime)


Retrieves all user profile data for profiles in which the last activity date occurred on or before the specified date and time.

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

Public Shared Function GetAllInactiveProfiles (
	authenticationOption As ProfileAuthenticationOption,
	userInactiveSinceDate As Date
) As ProfileInfoCollection


Type: System.Web.Profile.ProfileAuthenticationOption

One of the ProfileAuthenticationOption enumeration values, specifying whether anonymous, authenticated, or both types of profiles are returned.

Type: System.DateTime

A DateTime that identifies which user profiles are considered inactive. If the LastActivityDate of a user profile occurs on or before this date and time, the profile is considered inactive.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.Profile.ProfileInfoCollection

A ProfileInfoCollection containing user profile information about the inactive profiles.

The GetAllInactiveProfiles method is used to retrieve profile information from the data source for all unused user profiles for the application specified by the applicationName attribute in the configuration file. Use the authenticationOption parameter to specify whether you want only anonymous profiles, only authenticated profiles, or all profiles to be searched. Of the searched profiles, any profile is returned that has a LastActivityDate that occurs on or before the specified userInactiveSinceDate parameter value.

You can retrieve profile information for inactive user profiles in pages of data using the overload for the GetAllInactiveProfiles method that takes additional pageIndex and pageSize parameters.

The GetAllInactiveProfiles method calls the GetAllInactiveProfiles method of the default profile provider. The default profile provider is specified using the defaultProvider attribute of the configuration element. If the user profile contains properties that are managed by a profile provider other than the default provider, the data source for the other profile provider is not searched. To find unused profiles that are managed by a profile provider other than the default provider, obtain a reference to the profile provider using the Providers property and call the GetAllInactiveProfiles method of the provider directly.

The following code example shows an ASP.NET page that manages inactive profiles. A button is provided to delete all inactive profiles. Whether a profile is considered inactive is based on the date specified for the userInactiveSinceDate parameter.
