How does the Roles system in Identity work with Web forms?

I would like to see samples of how the roles system works with Web Forms in the new Identity system.  All I can find are MVC samples,  absolutely nothing with Web Forms.  I Would like to know, how to set the roles restrictions in folders, and prevent access to specific pages?  Does it work the way it has always worked,  you set folder permissions in the webcconfig in each directory?

I Appreciate the help,

So, some things:

You need a role manager. ASP .NET provides one for us that you can tie into, but I prefer to roll my own. Simply create a class the implements the RoleProvider base class.  All you really, really need to implement is one Method: IsInRole(..) (I think that's it).

Then, tie the new RoleProvider you created into the application via the web.config, as described in the article. Then, create your roles and assign them to the users in any way you want. The IsInRole() method will check using the process you created.

I actually did this by using the ApplicationState as the Role holder. I put the username and role in the Application State when they log in. Then, I check the Application State when IsInRole is processed.
