WSFederationAuthenticationModule.Issuer Property


Gets or sets a URI that identifies the intended issuer of the security token.

Public Property Issuer As String

Property Value


The URI that identifies the security token service (STS).


An attempt to set the property to null or an empty string occurs.


An attempt to set the property to a value that is not a valid, absolute URI occurs.


This is a required property. It must be set if passive redirects are enabled. It specifies the URL of the security token service (STS) to which WS-Federation requests should be issued.

You can override this setting on each HTTP request by adding a handler for the RedirectingToIdentityProvider event. This event is raised just before the module redirects to the security token service (STS) with a WS-Federation sign-in request message. The STS is specified by the Issuer property.
