I created one script library named

 Name : Check_Role

And the code is
Dim roles As Variant
Dim found As Integer
Dim session As  notessession

Sub stat_role
     Set session =New  notessession
Dim user As New NotesName(session.EffectiveUserName)
        roles=Evaluate("@UserRoles")
     found=False
     Forall r In roles
          If r="[Static_Role]" Then
               found=True
               Exit Forall
          End If
     End Forall
     
     If Not found Then
Print "Sorry, " + user.Common + ".[<BR>]You are not  authorized."
     Exit Sub
     End If
     
End Sub

And  script library I am calling in agent like this

and the agent i made as "run agent as web user"  

Use "Check_Role"

        Dim  session As New notessession
     Dim db As notesdatabase
     Dim view As notesview
     Dim doc As notesdocument
     
     Set db = session.currentdatabase
     Set view = db.getview("Qstatic")
     Set doc=view.Getlastdocument


Call stat_role    
Exit Sub

And I have some html code like this
        Print"<html>"
        Print"<head>"
     Print "<title>Dialup MTD</title>"
     Print "<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">"
     Print "<div align='center'>"
     Print "<b>Date:"
     Print"<font color='blue'>"&Format(Today, "Medium Date")&"</font></b><br>"
Print “</html>”

Now the problem is if the user is not having role permission its giving proper output like

U r not authorized.

If the user logs who is having the role permission its giving agent done.i don’t know where I am wrong .

    If Not found Then
Print "Sorry, " + user.Common + ".[<BR>]You are not  authorized."
    Exit Sub
    End If

change it into:


    If Not found Then
Print "Sorry, " + user.Common + ".[<BR>]You are not  authorized."
    Exit Sub
ELSE
Print "Welcome " + user.common
    End If

to jvanhalderen: Are you relative to JM?

to saleemkhan: your Sub stat_role can not abort the processing of calling agent.
Better way would be to make a function.
Like this:
Function stat_role As Integer
  Dim roles As Variant
  Dim found As Integer
  found=False
  roles=Evaluate("@UserRoles")
  Forall r In roles
    If r="[Static_Role]" Then found=True
  End Forall
  If Not found Then
    Dim session As New NotesSession
    Dim user As New NotesName(session.EffectiveUserName)
    Print "Sorry, " + user.Common + ".[<BR>]You are not  authorized."
    stat_role = False
  Else
    stat_role = True  
  End If
End Function

Than you can call it from your Agent like this:
  If (stat_role) Then
   '...your html prints
  End If

zvonko

Hi Saleem,
I noticed you posted a question for the mail you sent me.

So here's my response as given by email:

Well the best way to use the check_role code is to put it in a function and have that function return true or false, depending on the result.

Here's a general setup for your agent :

(Options)
Option Public
Option Declare
Use "Check_Role"

(Declarations)
Dim session as NotesSession

Function Verify_Role(role as string)
     REM Check if the user has the role specified as a parameter and return true or false
     REM Call the function with the role to check as a parameter and include square brackets.
     REM e.g. hasRole=Verify_Role("[Static_Role]")

     Dim roles As Variant
     Dim found As Integer
     Dim user As New NotesName(session.EffectiveUserName)

     roles=Evaluate("@UserRoles")
     found=False
     Forall r In roles
          If r=role Then
               found=True
               Exit Forall
          End If
     End Forall
     Verify_Role=found
End Function

Sub Initialize
     Set session=New Notessession
     Dim user As New NotesName(session.EffectiveUsername)

     If Not(Verify_Role("[Static_Role]")) Then
          Print "You are not authorized to run this agent"
     Else
          Print"<html>"
          Print"<head>"
          Print "<title>Dialup MTD</title>"
          Print "<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">"
          Print "<div align='center'>"
          Print "<b>Date:"
          Print"<font color='blue'>"&Format(Today, "Medium Date")&"</font></b><br>"
          Print "</html>"
     End If
End Sub


If you use this body for your agent everything should work fine.
Regards,
JM
