Role base authorization - deny ? vs. allow role

I am developing a web app and I need to set the security setting on a role base.

I tried to set as follow:

<allow roles="Admin, Users"></allow>
<deny users="?" />
Even though I only want to allow roles as Admin or Users, I found whoever has correct username and password would be permitted access. If I changed to

<allow roles="Admin, Users"></allow>
<deny users="*" />
It would behave correctly. Does this make sense?

Roles, roles, roles
Hey is it posible o have a role for a user to only update the content? I don't want that user to change skins or to make other admin changes... up I think if you allow a role to edit contents on a module level he wont be able to change anything else. Did you try that? cheers, erikErik van Ballegoij, The Netherlands if you allow a role to edit contents in a module lets say discussions module, then that role will be able to edit, delete the threads. so for a role to be able to add new thread only, do we need to write our own code?-keeara g------------------ keeara, see...

Authorization Manager (AzMan) -v- .NET role based security
Comparing Windows Authorization Manager (AzMan) with .NET role based security, consider an application with these requirements: The roles which will exist at run time are completely user-definable. Role/operation assignments are completely user-definable. Need hierarchical role support (create roles from other roles). Users may be assigned different roles for different things. Windows Authorization Manager seems to provide all the above, with user definable roles, operations, role/task/operation assignments, hierarchical roles, "scopes" to give users different roles for differe...

No roles found... but roles-based security works anyway!!!????
Hello, I wrote a ASP.NET 2.0 application using the Membership framework for security (roles and users). For debugging purposes I wrote some code in the index.aspx page to simply write out a list of all the roles that exist, using the good old Response.Write() method. I then published the site to my domain. However, the behavior of the index page is dependent on the running environment as follows: IN VS 2005 ACCESSING LOCAL SQLSERVER: Runs great, all roles listed. IN VS 2005 ACCESSING REMOTE (i.e. "LIVE") SQLSERVER: Runs great, all roles listed. IN A WEB BROWSER VIEWING THE PUBLI...

role-based authorization -- user role part is not working
Hi, I followed this link to setup role based authorization. However the 'isinrole' part didn't work. 'user.Identity.Name' works correctly. I set a few breakpoints and started debug. In the 'locals' window, under 'Me-User-..-ticket', there is nothing for 'UserData'. What did I do wrong? here is how I created the ticket. During the debug, I can see value for roles is correct ("0"). i used numbers for the roles not words. authTicket = New FormsAuthenticationTicket(1, username, DateTime.Now, DateT...

Setting Role cookie in Role Based Authorization
Hi, When using Role Based Authorization, we can set the Roles of a user at the application level by specifying it in the Global.asax's Application_AuthenticateRequest method. As soon as a user is authenticated, it will fetch his roles from the database and assign it to him so that we can use the User.IsInRole("RoleName") to check his role and perform actions based on the same. You can find many resources on the above topic on how to set the roles. However, one disadvantage is that on every page you check the Role, the DB call is made which might affect the performance of ...

Role based authorization (Based on Location)
I have worked with .net 2.0 Personalization and Authorization but I am wondering if it is possible to customize it (custom provider) to Match a Role to a Location when assigning to a User.  Here is an example....  //*****************************  User ID : 19 (Bob) Bob is an administrator for store 19 but... Bob is a view only user for store 20 and 24. When Bob searches products, he can only search stores 19, 20, 24 (an easy way to return Role and Location associated) (Think a lot of locations (100+) so it does not make sense to create a Role for each Location AdminStore...

Role based security based on Windows authentication
Hello there, A newbie question here.. I am trying to build an application using  role-based security (ie. it would let in only selected users) and I am using Wingdows Authentication as a security model. The problem is that no matter what I do I cannot restrict usage only to specific users. It works on the all or none basis. Ie no matter what I set in the web.config file, it does not effect the security, except setting <deny users="*"/> blocks access altogether..Currently I have the following settings set in the web.config file with no other settings/code set anywhere &nb...

Roles.AddUserToRole vs. Roles.IsUserInRole
Hello, I'm fairly new to this all so excuse me if my question may be stupid or asked before (at least I did'nt find it in the search). The problem I have: I created several roles, e.g. administrator and editor. I've made a little user management section that only an administrator can access, and other sections, that may be accessed by editors and admins. I do the access restriction by putting an if clause with Roles.IsUserInRole(rolename) in the Page_Load that redirects to "Access denied" page if the user is not in the role. Works fine so far. In the user management sectio...
