View Full Version : Authentication - Domain Groups

I know about getting the currently logged on user information(Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")), but can you get Domain\Group information as well?

Basically I'm wanting to allow an update to happen if the user belongs to a specific group and I want to do this in one page if possible.

This is what I use:

If InStr(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_IV_GROUPS"),"NameofGroup") <> 0 Then
in the group
not in the group
End if

What browser or server are you using that you are returning HTTP_IV_GROUPS? When I enumerate through Request.ServerVariables this isn't returned? :confused:

Sorry about that, I didnt realize it was not a part of the Request.ServerVariables collection. We use something called WebSEAL that sticks the HTTP_IV_GROUPS into the headers. I did a search on google and maybe this will do it:

Thanks for the reply and the posted link. That would've worked, but I just ended converting the page to ASP.NET since there you can just use:

If User.IsInRole("Domain\Domain Group") Then
User is in group
User is not in group
End If

Thanks again,
