AddAccessRule Method of the IFPCPolicyRules Interface

The AddAccessRule method creates a new FPCPolicyRule object representing an access rule in the collection and returns a reference to it.



HRESULT AddAccessRule(
  [in]   BSTR Name,
  [out]  IFPCPolicyRule** ppNewRule


Required. BSTR that specifies the name of the new access rule.

Address of an interface pointer that on return points to an IFPCPolicyRule interface representing the new access rule.

Return Value

This method returns one of the following:

[Visual Basic]


Function AddAccessRule( _
  ByVal Name As String _
) As FPCPolicyRule


Required. String that specifies the name of the new access rule.

Return Value

This method returns a reference to the FPCPolicyRule object if the operation is successful. Otherwise, an error is raised that can be intercepted by using an error handler.


The name assigned to the new rule must be unique. If the AddAccessRule method is called with the name of an existing policy rule, the method fails.

An access rule defines the action that will be taken when specific users attempt to access specific sites or content through the Forefront TMG computer. The access rule defined by the FPCPolicyRule object (IFPCPolicyRule interface in C++) created can be configured by setting the properties of the FPCAccessProperties object accessed through the AccessProperties property.

Client Requires Windows Vista or Windows XP.
