A customer had a unique need of verifying authorized users against a website that runs on IIS. The code is short and simple if you know what component and method(s) to invoke.


using System;


using System.Collections.Generic;


using System.Linq;


using System.Text;


using System.Threading.Tasks;


using Microsoft.Web.Management.Server;


namespace ConsoleApp1


{


class Program


{


static void Main(string[] args)


{


string message = null;


string isUserFound = "No";


string sprovider = null;


string userName = "john.doe";


ManagementAuthorizationInfoCollection authorizedCollection = ManagementAuthorization.GetAuthorizedUsers("Default Web Site", true, 0, 10);


sprovider = "Provider: " + ManagementAuthorization.Provider;


Console.WriteLine("{0}", sprovider);


// Search the returned collection.


foreach (ManagementAuthorizationInfo authorizedInfo in authorizedCollection)


{


// Check to see if the user is already in the allowed users collection.


if (userName.Equals(authorizedInfo.Name))


{


isUserFound = "yes";


}


}


Console.WriteLine("Does John.doe exist? {0}",isUserFound);


Console.WriteLine("done calling Microsoft.Web.Management.dll. Hit any key");


Console.ReadLine();


}


}


}
