HttpContext.SkipAuthorization Property


Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the UrlAuthorizationModule object should skip the authorization check for the current request.

 property bool SkipAuthorization { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool SkipAuthorization { get; set; }
member this.SkipAuthorization : bool with get, set
Public Property SkipAuthorization As Boolean

Property Value

true if UrlAuthorizationModule should skip the authorization check; otherwise, false. The default is false.


The SkipAuthorization property is intended for advanced use by authentication modules that need to redirect to a page that allows anonymous connections. The Forms authentication module and Passport authentication module both set SkipAuthorization when redirecting to a configured logon page. Setting SkipAuthorization requires the ControlPrincipal flag to be set. For information about the ControlPrincipal flag, see SecurityPermissionFlag.
