Checking if a request matches a Visitor Group from code

You may wish to check that the current Http request matches an EPiServer Visitor Group from code, such as from a page or control template.

Method #1

using EPiServer.Personalization.VisitorGroups;
var match = EPiServer.
             Security.
              PrincipalInfo.
               CurrentPrincipal.
                IsInRole("roleName", SecurityEntityType.VisitorGroup);

 

Method #2

using EPiServer.Personalization.VisitorGroups;
var helper = new VisitorGroupHelper();
var match = helper.IsPrincipalInGroup(principal, "roleName");

Both methods require a reference to the EPiServer.ApplicationModules assembly which is part of the EPiServer Framework.

Happy matching!

Hi Paul,

This is exactly what I want but if I simply use the visitor group name where it says roleName it does not seem to work, which makes sense since it wants a visitorgrouprole name and not a visitor group name. However, I can't seem to get the role name from the groupname.

Any ideas?
