Examples

The following example shows the roleManager element in the system.web section of the Web.config file for an ASP.NET application. It specifies that the application uses a SqlRoleProvider instance and sets the cookieName attribute to .ASPROLES.

<roleManager defaultProvider="SqlProvider"   
  enabled="true"  
  cacheRolesInCookie="true"  
  cookieName=".ASPROLES"  
  cookieTimeout="30"  
  cookiePath="/"  
  cookieRequireSSL="false"  
  cookieSlidingExpiration="true"  
  cookieProtection="All" >  
  <providers>  
    <add  
      name="SqlProvider"  
      type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider"  
      connectionStringName="SqlServices"  
      applicationName="MyApplication" />  
  </providers>  
</roleManager>  

Remarks

You can specify the name of the cookie where roles are cached for your application by setting the cookieName attribute in the Web.config file for your ASP.NET application. This is useful when you want to uniquely identify a cookie for your application or when a cookie is shared across multiple applications, such as a domain cookie.
