best practice with intranet security and menu structure

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by naijacoder naijacoder, Oct 1, 2005.

  1. Here goes the scenario..
    The intranet is using windows Auth integrated wih Active Directory.
    Which is fine and all the appropriate Roles/Groups are set.
    When a user clicks on a button on a page he/she is prompted and logs on
    and
    authorisation takes place
    and he gets redirected to the page depending on the GROUP/ROLES they
    belong
    to in the active directory.
    On the pages they have treeview webcontrol as a menu structure and the
    Datasource is an XML file.
    But the thing is each of the pages has got a different XML because they
    don't want them to see the same links(menu).
    And in that case its very difficult to maintain because anytime they
    want to
    change the MENU structure they
    have to go to each XML file and change it.
    What would be the best way to have one XML file with all the links and
    pass
    the right links(data to the Treeview menu) to the right page based on
    the
    seurity GROUPS/ROLES from the active directory
    That means when the user logs in and based on the GROUP he belongs to
    from
    the active directory the right XML(Datasource) gets populated to the
    Treeview Menu structure.
    Any ideas or anyone done something similar?
