I have a role I've created thru the WSAT named Managers. I've added the following to the app.config to restrict access to users who are in the Managers role.

 <location path="Management">
                <allow roles="Managers"/>
                <deny users="*"/>

Where that was manual and done at design time. How and I add the location\authorization to the app.config at runtime. I see a method in the roles object that lets me add a role programatically is something available to add an authorization?
