Remarks

Evaluating all of the authorization policies in an authorization manager results in a set of ClaimSet objects. These objects make up an authorization context.

An authorization context contains a set of claim set objects, an expiration time that specifies the span of time during which the authorization context is valid, and a unique identifier.

The AuthorizationContext for the current operation can be accessed via the AuthorizationContext property.

Constructors

AuthorizationContext() AuthorizationContext() AuthorizationContext() AuthorizationContext()

Initializes a new instance of the AuthorizationContext class.

Properties

ClaimSets ClaimSets ClaimSets ClaimSets

Gets the set of claims associated with an authorization policy.

ExpirationTime ExpirationTime ExpirationTime ExpirationTime

Gets the date and time at which this AuthorizationContext object is no longer valid.

Id Id Id Id

Gets a unique identifier for this AuthorizationContext object.

Properties Properties Properties Properties

Gets a collection of non-claim properties associated with this AuthorizationContext object.
