Webapplication run as another user

Well.. Hello all over there,

I have written a Web-Application which can read all rights of a folder... Now I need to run this Web-Application on an IIS with special rights... For example by the user "domain\testuser"... So the Website have to run as testuser of the domain...
would it be possible?

Hello counterroot,

In your web.config line, locate the  element and change it accordingly:

well thx =)
if I would choose the option with the web.config...
what would be the full web.config-file? Because I didn't find it... It should be located in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ for example..

I tried to create this file and fill it with your line... but without results... -.-*

Now I could identy the Application-Pool through the inetmgr. so the problem is solved, but...
Would it be possible that you attach some web.config with this line? so I could see it? It would be the more interesting solution ;)

Web.config should be located in the root folder of your application, so if you have created the site in IIS and set the location of the application to a specific folder (not necessarily \inetpub\wwwroot) then this is where you would find it. I could post an example but as it would not be appropriate for your application (assemblies will differ etc) it would not be much use.

The advantage of using the web.config method is that if you do not specify a username and password but set impersonate="true" then it will use the credentials of the logged in user on the client to run. This can be useful in intranet environments where you know that a user will be logged into the domain as their permissions will then apply to their session.
