Security :: How To Find Out If The Current User Is Elligible To View An URL Based On Role Provider
Aug 17, 2010
I want to execute some logic if the Logged in User can view a page "~/MyPage.aspx". IF the logged in user should be elligible to view the page is determined by the role based security I configured in the web.config file. There are many methods to find out if the user is in role XXX or not. But I did not find any method to find out if the user can view a page or not ahead of transferring the user to that page. Maybe I will hide a link to a specific page to the logged in user if the user is not elligible to view that page if I know the technique i am asking here to know.
I am creating a interface for User Role Management based on built in membership provider.I want to display all the roles as check boxes for a selected user. I am able to display all the roles in the database, but not able to load the specific user roles. For example, I am able to publish role 1 role 2 role3 role 4 as check boxes. But if the user is already flagged as role 1 and role 3, I am not able to show that data (role1 and 3 should be checked when form loads, but right now, they are not checked)...How do I get the roles as checked boxes display on a page.I am using a repeater control to display roles as check boxes on the page..
I am trying to create a Forms Authenticated site and have already used the aspnet_regsql tool to create the necessary logic in my SQL Server DB to hold my data. Now, I am looking to create a custom Membership, User and Role provider for my DB model. I was looking at the following video: [URL]
Now, I get the concept on how to go about it but I notice that this guy uses custom DB Procedures as to the ones that are generated by the aspnet_regsql tool. Can anyone direct me on where I can find info on how to go about building the Membership, User and Role provider class using the DB structure that aspnet_regsql generates? So much junk on google that I am having a hard time finding good guidance.
I'm trying to allow logged user who are in department XYZ to perform some task for my third party App. I have two SQL tables named Users & UserList. The third party app (GoldMine) graps the USERNAME from the Users table and store it as UserID which I then referecnce SessionID. The UserList table has two columns (GM_UserName & Department) which I'm interested in. When a user login into the 3rd party app (GoldMine), i then compare the USERNAME (from Users table) to GM_UserName (from UserList table) and see whether GM_UserName is in = 'Dept XYZ'. Take a look at the SQL query below.
sqlDept = "SELECT USERNAME FROM Users LEFT JOIN UserList ON UserList.GM_UserName=Users.UserName WHERE UserList.Department ='Dept XYZ'"
I'm able to do this.
If Session("Userid") = "TestUser1" Or Session("UserID") = "TestUser2" Then Do this Else Do that End If BUT unable to do this... If user's Department = 'Department XYZ' Then Do This Else Do that End IF
I want to know how can i redirect a user to a different page when he tries to access a page restricted to another role?
The scenario is as follows:
I have a folder "Gestao" that only allows users in role "Administrator"
If an anonymous user tries to access that folder he is redirected to the login page, but if a logged in user whose role is "friend" tries to access this folder he is also redirected to the login page. I want to redirect him to a page showing a message that he has no permission to access that page/area.
How can I do that? Should i have code on the Page_load event of the login page checking the user role and then redirect him to the correct page? Or is there some otherway to do this?
I'm not sure if this is possible or not, I'm using Roles to limit what pages a user can access based on there assigned Role. My question, is there anyway to redirect the user to a specific web page based on thier role after they login.
If Bob logs in with Role="Automotive", I want him to be redirected to Auto.aspx.If sue logs in with Role="Clothing", i want her to be redirected to cloths.aspx.
i currently develop an asp.net mvc 2 web app using asp.net membership and role management for authenticating and authorizing my users. I get complaints though that when adding a role to some user, he is not able to see new role assigned functionality, unless he re-enters (logout and login again) the application.
This is probably a lame question, but I know little of web development. I inherited a web project that I'm trying to get running locally. I get the mentioned error on line 46.
Line 44: </authentication> Line 45: <membership defaultProvider="AD_MyCompanyName" /> Line 46: <roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="ADRP_MyCompanyName_Readonly" cacheRolesInCookie="true" cookieName="MyCompanyName.ROLES" createPersistentCookie="true" cookieSlidingExpiration="true" cookieTimeout="240" /> Line 47: <profile enabled="false"/> Line 48: <customErrors mode="Off"/>
This code works on the old developer's box, but not on mine. I've been working through some TFS checkout issues on his box, assuming it was simply files left checked out. I can't figure out where the providers are added. I don't see them being added in the config file above. In fact, if I search for "AD_MyCompanyName" and "ADRP_MyCompanyName_Readonly", I get no hits in the entire solution. I can't figure out what they are. Not sure why it works on that box if I can't even find the providers being added.
We are trying to implement Custom Role membership provider for our web app. For authorization we want to check for one more field like Facilityid for the logged on user along with role he has. eg. my User1 having Role1 with Facility1 can access some option and same user role for Facility2 have different option. So is there a way we can extend the existing role/profile provider to authorize user with this additional field along with role assigned.
I have created custome Membership Role and Profile provider using INGRES db. Now I can see my IngresMembership and IngresRole provider in the Provider tab(Select a different provider for each feature (advanced) ) of WSAT but when I clik on security tab I get this error:
"There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.
The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
What am I missing? Do I need to add code for all override methods for Role provider? I have just written code for the Initialize and GetRolesForUser functions.
I have a custom role provider class that is currently being used by a web application. We are now in the process of migrating several windows applications from VB6 to VB.Net. From preliminary research, I understand that I can use the custom role provider in win forms as well and came across Client Application Services. I understand how the Client Application Services is setup, but can't seem to find how the custom role provider code will be shared between the web apps and the windows apps.
I'm building an application that will be used by a number of different schools who want completely separate databases so I've decided to have multiple connection strings and membership/role providers in my web.config file. In my code, I'm trying to set which connection string and provider to use at runtime for the correct database according to the logged in user.
I'm coming into a lot of bits in my code that previously worked fine, that now don't. For example, I used to use:
But now that I've changed it to this, it doesn't work anymore:
The compiler tells me that AddUserToRole is not a member of 'r'. I've had similar problems not just with Roles but Membership too, like with calling CreateUser.
I'd still like to be able to use all these methods that I was using before which are extremely handy. I just want to be able to set the membership/role provider at runtime rather than use the default one. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a simpler way to go about this?
I was hoping some of you would entertain my XmlSiteMapProvider question. I have a portal site that has multiple ASP.NET Role Providers. One for each child web application. I need to basically change the role provider on the fly. Does anyone know if this is possible? My approach is to maybe override the XmlSiteMapProvider and add an attribute indicating which Role Provider to use. Then, in the IsAccessibleToUser method, I was planning on dynamically change the role provider some how based off the new attribute.
Again, is this approach seem reasonable/doable or am I in the weeds here? I'm open to alternatives if anyone has one.
I've just started a small ASP.NET web application. In this project, I need to authenticate the users with Active Driectory. I managed to authenticate the users successfully with Active Directory. But with Authorization with Custom Role Provider, I'm so confused.You see, the user name and password are stored in AD. So, my approach is that after the LoggedIn event of the Login Control, I check if UserName is not yet stored in the Users table yet, then I will store the UserName there. Eventually, I have all the UserName of the AD users store in the Users table so I can assign Roles to the users.
Let's say I assigned UserA to RoleOne. After he logs in successfully, I do some query to look for his Roles.
Where do I keep the Role ticket? In the Cookie or in the session? How does the authorization of ASP.NET role provider work? I want to store the authentication ticket like ASP.NET role prover does too.
