Kentico Authorization Attribute

For Kentico 13 .Net Core only!

Kentico Authorization Attribute for Kentico MVC, provides a [KenticoAuthorize] Attribute that you can add to your ActionResult methods that can allows for permissions on:

  1. User Authenticated
  2. User Names
  3. User Roles
  4. Page ACL Permissions (May require custom handling, see Events section below)
  5. Resource/Module Permissions

It also allows for a custom Unauthorized Redirect path in case you need to specify a specific location to send unauthorized users.


  1. Install the Authorization.Kentico.MVC.Core NuGet Package to your MVC Site
  2. Overwrite any Events if you need
  3. Add [KenticoAuthorize()] attributes to your ActionResult methods.


  1. Add the [KenticoAuthorize()] Attribute to your ActionResult and pass in any properties you wish to configure.


The Authorization Module has 4 events you can hook into in order to customize it's behavior.


This allows you to modify the retrieval of the current page. By default, it will try to find the page based on Kentico's Page Builder Context, then by the relative path with a match on the NodeAliasPath.


This allows you to modify the retrieval of the current culture. This is used in the GetPage logic to get the proper TreeNode. By default, It will use the PreviewCulture (if in preview), LocalizationContext.CurrentCulture, and lastly the System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Name.


This allows you to modify the retrieval of the current user. By default it will use the HttpContext.User.Identity to get the UserName of the current user. Public is the default user if none found or the found user is disabled.


This allows you to modify the Authorizing logic itself. By default it will perform all the proper checks on User, Role, Module Permissions, Page ACL, and user allowed cultures. If you do overwrite, you must set SkipDefaultValidation to true in the AuthorizingEventArgs.


Can be used on any Kentico 13 .net Core site.
