When or How to Use Run With Elevated Privileges (RWEP) in SharePoint

Posted on Updated on

The scope of this article is to explain the usage of RunWithElevatedPrivileges() [RWEP] – a method for security elevation for custom SharePoint components.

“The RWEP method enables you to supply a delegate that runs a subset of code in the context of an account with higher privileges than the current user”, this is the definition from Microsoft MSDN.
