User Object (ADOX)

Represents a user account that has access permissions within a secured database.


The Users collection of a Catalog represents all the catalog's users. The Users collection for a Group represents only the users of the specific group.

With the properties, collections, and methods of a User object, you can:

  • Identify the user with the Name property.

  • Change the password for a user with the ChangePassword method.

  • Determine whether a user has read, write, or delete permissions with the GetPermissions and SetPermissions methods.

  • Access the groups to which a user belongs with the Groups collection.

  • Access provider-specific properties with the Properties collection.

  • Determine the ParentCatalog for a user.
