Hi, we have a scenario as follows:
We are using impersonation to send the windows credentials of the logged in user (NOT ASP user) to the file system.
The token is checked and the appropriate folders are displayed for that user.
The root folder is set to allow all users to view the contents of THIS FOLDER ONLY. Permissions are then set via NTFS per folder under the root folder.
SO EVERYONE CAN SEE THE LIST OF FOLDER UNDER THE ROOT FOLDER.
If we have 3 folders under the root folder, I want to list these 3 folders for the user. If they then try to navigate to one of the sub folders, the user’s NTFS permissions are used to determine if they can enter the folder, and if so, if they can read/write, etc in that folder.
This all works with the radfileexplorer EXCEPT that if a user does not have read or write permissions to one of the sub folders the control first triggers a windows challenge response, then you get an access to path “x” is denied error.
This behaviour is fine, as long as I can TRAP and handle this. I assume I need to override either the
FileSystemContentProvider.ResolveRootDirectoryAsTree function or
I assume the problem is that the file explorer control is reading the root folder, then trying to read the contents of the sub folders in the root. As the user does not have any permissions to this folder, this causes the problem.
The only change I want to make is that it either doesn’t attempt to read sub folders when creating the root (I assume this is done in resolverootdirectoryastree).
If the user then tried to access a folder that they do not have access to, I would like to be able to handle this as well.
I have a much simpler page which has this functionality. When I list the files and fodlers in a direcotyr I simply encapsulate it in a try and catch – this allows me to handle the access is denied error:
Dim arrFiles As New ArrayList
Dim arrFolders As New ArrayList
Catch ex As Exception
The trace for the error is below:
UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\denzien_docs\james cannot get in here' is denied.]
