Security :: Lock Down Certain Sitemap Menu Items Based On The Users Role ?
My web app has 3roles, I need to lock down certain sitemap menu items based on the users role and what I'm using isn't working.

my roles are Supervisor, manager, and User.


I only want those roles to see those menu options, I do not want someone with a user role to see those options at all. Currently if I log into my site with a user role, I'm seeing everything on the menu (via the sitemap).

Security :: Enable User To Edit / Delete Based On User's Role Permission
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="SELECTUSERNAMEFROMUsersLEFTJOINUserListONUserList.GM_UserName=Users.UserNameWHEREUserList.Department='Dept XYZ'"

I'm able to do this.

IfSession("Userid")="TestUser1"OrSession("UserID")="TestUser2"ThenDo thisElse Do thatEndIf
BUT unable to do this...
If user's Department = 'Department XYZ' Then
Do This
Do that
End IF

MVC :: Strongly Typed User Control On All Pages Based On Login Status And User Role
I want to display a menu (which will be strongly typed with it's own unique model) across all pages only if a user is logged in.What menu items are available depend on the user's role and also I'll need to hit the repository to get numbers like "x Messages", etc

Been scratching my head for a simple solution here. Don't want to create something that need changes all over the place.All my controllers derive from a BaseController, all my Models from BaseViewModel....probably where I'll be implementing functionality for this.

Security :: How To Redirect Logged In User Based On Role
I want to know how can i redirect a user to a different page when he tries to accessa page restricted to another role?

The scenario is as follows:

I have a folder "Gestao" that only allows users in role "Administrator"


If ananonymoususer 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 canI 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?

Authentication - How To Limit .net Control Actions Based On User Role
I have several pages or views in my application which are essentially the same for both authenticated users and anonymous users. I'd like to limit the insert/update/delete actions in formviews and gridviews to authenticated users only, and allow read access for both authed and anon users.

I'm using the configuration system for handling authentication and roles. This system limits access based on path so I've been creating duplicate pages for authed and anon paths.The solution that comes to mind immediately is to check roles in the appropriate event handlers, limiting what possible actions are displayed (insert/update/delete buttons) and also limiting what actions are performed (for users that may know how to perform an action in the absence of a button.) However, this solution doesn't eliminate duplication - I'd be duplicating security code on a series of pages rather than duplicating pages and limiting access based on path; the latter would be significantly less complicated.I could always build some controls that offered role-based configuration, but I don't think I have time for that kind of commitment right now.Is there a relatively easy way to do this (do such controls exist?) or should I just stick to path-based access and duplicate pages?

Does it even make sense to use two methods of authorization? There are still some pages which are strictly for either role so I'll be making use of path-based authorization anyway.Finally, would using something other than path-based authorization be contrary to typical design practices, at least in the context of using the configuration system?

For example:

Filtering Repeater Items Based On User Status / Role?
I have a tricky requirement where I need to categorise documents attached to a product, available for download, based on the status of the user viewing the product. I.e. my site displays a list of products, clicking on one displays a product details page, and this page includes a list a documents related to the product, such as data sheets, user manuals, etc.

I have been asked to group documents into three classes of availability, v.i.z. those available freely to all users, including anonymous; those available to logged on users; and those available to anonymous users that provide contact information before downloading the document, presumably to boost sales leads.

The anonymous and logged on availabilities are quite easy, but the third seems a bit tricky to me. My first question is, is there a way I can filter documents for only logged on users without hooking into ItemDataBound or something, and my second question is, what is recommended for the case where a user must supply contact information to download a document?

In the second question, it has crossed my mind to actually register the user, but without them having to visit the new user registration page, and then I have role based filtering of documents. Currently the new user registration process automatically adds the Member role to all new users. Users I register 'quietly', just so they can download a document, wont be assigned the Member role, distinguishing them from normally logged on members.

Security :: How To Find Out If The Current User Is Elligible To View An URL Based On Role Provider
Iwant toexecute some logicif 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.

Security :: Adding User Role Selection To Create New User Wizard?
Im pretty much a newb when it comes to developing throuh I was wondering if there is a way to allow users who create new accounts using the "Create New User Wizard" through VWD to select the type of role they belong to, or do I have to build a custom extender to do that?

The reason for this is I want the end user to select what "Type" (Role) of user they are and then have their user role page load and store their personal information in that role's section of the back end sql database.

Security :: Creating A Interface For User Role Management Based On Built In Membership Provider?
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..

<asp:Repeater ID="UsersRoleList" runat="server">
<asp:CheckBox runat="server" ID="RoleCheckBox" AutoPostBack="true" Text='<%# Container.DataItem %>'

MVC :: Dynamically Create The Route Based On The Users Selection?
I need to createa web page where the user can select from a variety of categories via a dropdown list, then enter a search term into a textbox to provide a search term. The category is going to dictate which controller to use, and the search term will be a query parameter for the List action of each controller.

What I can't figure out is how to dynamically create the route based on the users selection. How do I get the values selected from the dropdownlist and textbox into Url.RouteUrl?

MVC :: Dynamically Render The Usercontrols Based On The Logged In User?
We have an application where the controls are dynamically added to the form based on the logged in user,

This user controls related data is stored in the database.There is lot of logic in the code behind in the webforms which is so messy to maintain it, we are planning to re-writeit using the MVC framework.

I would say there would be rougly 50 different forms based on the user logged in, is it good idea to create so many views and redirect to the appropriate view based on the logged in user, in some of the forms there might be minor difference like the order of the Control might change.

To Create A Name For The Cell/user Control Dynamically?
I have 5 cells on a page, and five references to a user control on a page, each one individually numbered, such as:

Chart1Cell.Visible = false;
Chart2Cell.Visible = false;
Chart3Cell.Visible = false;
Chart4Cell.Visible = false;
Chart5Cell.Visible = false;


Chart1.Visible = false;
Chart2.Visible = false;
Chart3.Visible = false;
Chart4.Visible = false;
Chart5.Visible = false;

What I would prefer to do is this: for (int i = 1; i <= 5; i++)
Chart(i)Cell.Visible = false;
Chart(i).Visible = false;

But I am not sure how I can create a name for the cell/user control dynamically. I am pretty sure I would need to create a name within the loop that equates to what I already have, just not sure how to or if it's even possible.

Web Forms :: Create Web User Control Dynamically?
I want to know how can we create web user control dynamically.

Scenario: Basically i am developing registration user control. I have a web page(say,SelectInputs.aspx)that lists different types of fields along with checkbox attached to each of them for selection. Once i select desired input controls (which should appear inuser control) and click submit button then the file (.ascx) should be created from code behind.

eg: Lets say on SelectInputs.aspx i select fieldsviz. Firstname(textbox), Lastname(textbox), DateOfBirth(3 dropdowns) etc and click on submit button then from code behind the .ascx file should be generated that will include Firstname(textbox), Lastname(textbox), DateOfBirth(3 dropdowns) etc.
