How do I setup new web pages to require authentication?

Hi, I'm using asp.net and C# 3.5.  
I created an asp.net web application that requires membership authentication through login screen.  There was only one page after use is authenticated in.  I now need to create several pages and they all should only allow access after the user is authenticated.  However, I forgot how I set that up.  Can someone tell me in quick steps on how to do this for the new pages?  Thank you.

You can use web.config to implement this type of security.
You can do it in two ways.
1. Folder level
2. File level

I guess, you need file level security. To implement this, see following code, it's added in web.config

 
<location path="AddStatusReport.aspx">
	<system.web>
		<authorization>
			<deny users="?" />
			<allow users="*" />
		</authorization>
	</system.web>
</location>
<location path="EmployeeRatingReport.aspx">
	<system.web>
		<authorization>
			<allow roles="Administrators" />
			<deny users="*" />
		</authorization>
	</system.web>
</location>
<location path="DailyStatusReport.aspx">
	<system.web>
		<authorization>
			<allow roles="TeamLeads" />
			<deny users="*" />
		</authorization>
	</system.web>
</location>

Open in new window


add this code before closing tag of <configuration> ie. at the end of file. and modify page names according to yours.

? : anonymous users
* : all users

for more details, see : Setting authorization rules for a particular page or folder in web.config
