Authorization.ProtectionRealm Property

Definition

Gets or sets the prefix for Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) that can be authenticated with the Message property.

public:
 property cli::array <System::String ^> ^ ProtectionRealm { cli::array <System::String ^> ^ get(); void set(cli::array <System::String ^> ^ value); };
public string[] ProtectionRealm { get; set; }
member this.ProtectionRealm : string[] with get, set
Public Property ProtectionRealm As String()

Property Value

String[]

An array of strings that contains URI prefixes.

Examples

The following code example gets or sets the prefix for URIs that can be authenticated with the Message property.

Remarks

The ProtectionRealm property contains a list of URI prefixes that the Message property can be used to authenticate. WebRequest and its descendants compare a URI to this list to determine if the Authorization is valid for a particular URI.
