Let's say I have a group "Parent Group". It has a sub group "Child Group". If I have a user, who is a member of "Parent Group", why is User.IsInRole("Child Group") == false?
Is there any way to "Set Access Rights" on a page such that group rights bubble? I would expect that a user who is a member of "Parent Group" would have access to any page which is set to allow Read access to "Child Group" but this does not appear to be the case.
It should work, se here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8261737/web-app-active-directory-user-roles-vs-user-isinrole
Check that Child Group is a securitygroup otherwise it might not work
On further investigation I can see that I had it around the wrong way. A child group is considered a member of it's parent groups (recursively) - parent groups are not members of their child groups.
Hmm, I did not see that when I read, but that is true.
Great that it works!
