Dotnetnuke refresh menu items after role assignment

Dear experts,

I have created a dotnetnuke module for users to add themselves to a security role "Document Editing". I have assigned the menu item "Documents" to the security role.

However, the menu item "Documents" does not appear immediately when the user add themselves to the role. It only appears after about a minute.

How can I force the menu items to appear immediately? I am not sure whether this should be a server-side or client-side issue. Tried using javascript postback but with no luck.

Thanks!

In DNN rolemembership are persisted on the client side by way of cookies. So, if you modify role membership of a user, you need to clear that cookie. You can do this easily by calling DotNetNuke.Security.PortalSecurity.ClearRoles()
Once the cookie is cleared, DNN will re-create it with the new roleinfo, which includes the new membership. This will make the menu filter properly to the new rolemembership of the user, and should make the previously hidden menu visible
