Public Class FederationConfiguration


By default web applications have a single FederationConfiguration object that is accessed through the FederatedAuthentication.FederationConfiguration property. The first time the property is accessed a new FederationConfiguration instance is initialized from settings in the configuration file and the FederatedAuthentication.FederationConfigurationCreated event is raised. You can use the properties and methods exposed by the FederationConfiguration class to modify or replace the object initialized from configuration in an event handler. This object is available through the FederationConfigurationCreatedEventArgs.FederationConfiguration property inside the event handler.


FederationConfiguration() FederationConfiguration() FederationConfiguration() FederationConfiguration()

Initializes a new instance of the FederationConfiguration class by loading settings from the system.identityModel.services section of the configuration file.

FederationConfiguration(Boolean) FederationConfiguration(Boolean) FederationConfiguration(Boolean) FederationConfiguration(Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the FederationConfiguration class by optionally loading settings from the system.identityModel.services section of the configuration file.

FederationConfiguration(String) FederationConfiguration(String) FederationConfiguration(String) FederationConfiguration(String)

Initializes a new instance of the FederationConfiguration class from the <federationConfiguration> element with the specified name.
