Sitefinity Rookie Guide : Get Users in a Custom Role

To get users in a custom role, make sure to use the Role manager with Default Provider in Sitefinity.

I am pretty new to Sitefinity and started learning since one of the upcoming projects is need to be done in the Sitefinity.

Now spent few days in a POC, in which one requirement is to list users in a custom role that we created. And it can be achieved easily using below code,

1var roleMngr = RoleManager.GetManager("Default");
2var usersInCustomRole = roleMngr.GetUsersInRole("CustomRole");
3foreach (var user in usersInCustomRole)
5 var userProfileManager = UserProfileManager.GetManager();
6 var sitefinityProfile = userProfileManager.GetUserProfile<SitefinityProfile>(user);
8 ...

Replace the CustomRole with the role name which you have created, in my case, it was Reviewer. Since we want users in a custom role (i.e role which we created), we need to use the Default provider.

The custom roles you created are part of the Default Provider.

In case of built-in roles, use AppRoles as the provider name to get the role manager.
