Remarks

In general, applications should override CheckAccessCore instead of this method.

Override CheckAccess if the application associates or introduces a different set of policies for the resulting ServiceSecurityContext or provide a different policy evaluation (chaining) model.

This method is responsible for calling CheckAccessCore.

CheckAccess(OperationContext, Message) CheckAccess(OperationContext, Message) CheckAccess(OperationContext, Message)

Checks authorization for the given operation context when access to a message is required.

public:
 virtual bool CheckAccess(System::ServiceModel::OperationContext ^ operationContext, System::ServiceModel::Channels::Message ^ % message);
public virtual bool CheckAccess (System.ServiceModel.OperationContext operationContext, ref System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message message);
abstract member CheckAccess : System.ServiceModel.OperationContext *  -> bool
override this.CheckAccess : System.ServiceModel.OperationContext *  -> bool

Parameters

message
Message Message Message

The Message to be examined to determine authorization.

Returns

true if access is granted; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Examples

The following code shows how to override this method to enforce custom access control requirements that require access to the message body.

public class myService_M_AuthorizationManager : ServiceAuthorizationManager 
{
    // set max size for message
    int someMaxSize = 16000;
    protected override bool CheckAccessCore(OperationContext operationContext, ref Message message)
    {
        bool accessAllowed = false;
        MessageBuffer requestBuffer = message.CreateBufferedCopy(someMaxSize);

        // do access checks using the message parameter value and set accessAllowed appropriately
        if (accessAllowed)
        {
            // replace incoming message with fresh copy since accessing the message consumes it
            message = requestBuffer.CreateMessage();
        }
        return accessAllowed;
    }
}
Public Class myService_M_AuthorizationManager
    Inherits ServiceAuthorizationManager

    ' set max size for message
    Private someMaxSize As Integer = 16000

    Public Overrides Function CheckAccess(ByVal operationContext As OperationContext, _
                                          ByRef message As Message) As Boolean
        Dim accessAllowed = False
        Dim requestBuffer = Message.CreateBufferedCopy(someMaxSize)

        ' do access checks using the message parameter value and set accessAllowed appropriately
        If accessAllowed Then
            ' replace incoming message with fresh copy since accessing the message consumes it
            Message = requestBuffer.CreateMessage()
        End If
        Return accessAllowed
    End Function
End Class

Remarks

In general, applications should override CheckAccessCore instead of this method, which should only be used if the authorization decision depends on the message body. Because of performance issues, if possible you should redesign your application so that the authorization decision does not require access to the message body.

Override this method if the application associates or introduces a different set of policies for the resulting ServiceSecurityContext and Message or provide a different policy evaluation (chaining) model.

This method is responsible for calling CheckAccessCore.
