C# – Authorization Asp.net web.config

asp.netc++rolessecurityweb-config

I have an application that has a backoffice.
This backoffice was isolated with the use of roles like this:

<location path="backoffice">
    <system.web>
        <authorization>
            <allow roles="admin"/>
            <deny users="*"/>
        </authorization>
    </system.web>
</location>

But now we have another type of role that needs access. The companyadmin role.

Can I just say?:

 <location path="backoffice">
        <system.web>
            <authorization>
                <allow roles="admin,companyadmin"/>
                <deny users="*"/>
            </authorization>
        </system.web>
    </location>

Best Solution

Yes, exactly so (assuming you properly authenticated your users, and set their roles accordingly).
