    Hallo Telerik Team,

    I would like to check a page permission for a specific role (not the current User roles) from code, 

    PagePermission.CheckDemand(PageRights) functions only with the current User Roles

    thank you

    Hello Guyso,

    You can use the SecurityManager and cast the ICmsPage to ISecured object. Then you can get all permissions and using logical operations check for particular permissions:
    //get permsissions for secured object for all roles in default provider
    IList permissions = cmsManager.SecurityManager.GetPermissions((ISecured)page);
    foreach (Permission permission in permissions)
        int grant = permission.Grant;
        grant |= PageRights.Delete;
        if (permission.Grant == grant)
    //get permission for particlular role from particular provider
    IAccessPermisson accessPermission = cmsManager.SecurityManager.GetPermission((ISecured)page, "Sitefinity", "test");
    int deny = accessPermission.Deny;
    deny |= PageRights.View;
    if (accessPermission.Deny == deny)
        //means that the View permission is set to deny for this role for particular page

    Kind regards,
