Authorization time interval in asp net core blazor

Introduction

ASP.NET is a popular programming language used for building web applications. One common requirement in web applications is to control access to certain resources based on authorization rules. In ASP.NET Core Blazor, you can easily implement authorization time intervals to restrict access to specific of your application based on time.

Implementing Authorization Time Interval

To implement authorization time intervals in ASP.NET Core Blazor, you can use the built-in authorization middleware provided by the framework. This middleware allows you to authorization policies and apply them to specific endpoints or .

First, let's define a policy that restricts access to a specific time interval. In this example, we want to restrict access to a certain page from 9 AM to 5 PM.


services.AddAuthorization(options =>
{
    options.AddPolicy("OfficeHours", policy =>
    {
        policy.Requirements.Add(new TimeIntervalRequirement(TimeSpan.FromHours(9), TimeSpan.FromHours(17)));
    });
});

In the code above, we define a policy named “OfficeHours” and add a requirement to it. The requirement is an instance of the “TimeIntervalRequirement” , which takes two parameters: the start time and end time of the interval.

Creating the Authorization Handler

Next, we need to create an authorization handler that checks if the current time falls within the authorized interval. If it does, the user is authorized; otherwise, access is .


public class TimeIntervalAuthorizationHandler : AuthorizationHandler

In the code above, we create a class named "TimeIntervalAuthorizationHandler" that inherits from the "AuthorizationHandler" class. We override the "HandleRequirementAsync" method, which is called when the authorization middleware processes the policy.

Inside the method, we retrieve the current time of day using the "DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay" . We then compare it with the start and end times specified in the requirement. If the current time falls within the authorized interval, we call the "Succeed" method on the context object to indicate that the user is authorized.

Applying the Authorization Policy

Finally, we need to apply the authorization policy to the desired or controller in our Blazor application. We can do this by using the "Authorize" attribute and specifying the policy name.


[Authorize(Policy = "OfficeHours")]
public class RestrictedPage : ComponentBase
{
    // Page content
}

In the code above, we apply the "OfficeHours" policy to the "RestrictedPage" component. This means that only users who are authorized based on the time interval defined in the policy will be able to access this page.

Conclusion

By implementing authorization time intervals in ASP.NET Core Blazor, you can easily control access to specific parts of your application based on time. This can be useful for scenarios where you want to restrict access to certain resources specific hours of the day. By following the outlined in this article, you can easily implement this functionality in your Blazor application.
