When using role-based security in ArcGIS Server, security for resources (GIS Services and folders containing GIS Services) is managed by allowing or denying a principal permissions for all operations on a resource.

Use the AllowPermissions method to allow a principal access to perform any operation on a specified resource. Once the allow permission has been granted, it can be removed explicitly using the DenyPermissions method or implicitly through the continuous inheritance model.
