In the code below, I am trying to use the Global.asax page to check whether the user is logged in and if so if the user is in the role of UnvalidatedEmail, they get redirected to VerifyCode.aspx. However, it keeps looping back to this code after redirect.
Thanks.
Sub Application_AuthorizeRequest(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
If User IsNot Nothing And User.Identity.IsAuthenticated = True Then
 
            If User.IsInRole("UnvalidatedEmail") Then
                Response.Redirect("VerifyCode.aspx")
            End If
End If
end sub

Try this




 
Sub Application_AuthorizeRequest(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
If Request.Path.StartsWith("VerifyCode.aspx") Then Exit Sub
If User IsNot Nothing And User.Identity.IsAuthenticated = True Then
 
            If User.IsInRole("UnvalidatedEmail") Then
                Response.Redirect("VerifyCode.aspx")
            End If
End If
end sub

Sorry

If Request.Path.Contains("VerifyCode.aspx") Then Exit Sub

This should work fine.
Sub Application_AuthorizeRequest(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
If Request.Path.Contains("VerifyCode.aspx") Then Exit Sub
If User IsNot Nothing And User.Identity.IsAuthenticated = True Then
 
            If User.IsInRole("UnvalidatedEmail") Then
                Response.Redirect("VerifyCode.aspx")
            End If
End If
end sub
