Examples

The following example gets the value of this property.

// Create a service host.
Uri httpUri = new Uri("http://localhost/Calculator");
ServiceHost sh = new ServiceHost(typeof(Calculator), httpUri);

// Create a binding that uses a username/password credential.
WSHttpBinding b = new WSHttpBinding(SecurityMode.Message);
b.Security.Message.ClientCredentialType = MessageCredentialType.UserName;

// Add an endpoint.
sh.AddServiceEndpoint(typeof(ICalculator), b, "UserNamePasswordCalculator");

// Get a reference to the UserNamePasswordServiceCredential object.
UserNamePasswordServiceCredential unpCredential = 
    sh.Credentials.UserNameAuthentication;
// Print out values.
Console.WriteLine("IncludeWindowsGroup: {0}", 
    unpCredential.IncludeWindowsGroups);
Console.WriteLine("UserNamePasswordValidationMode: {0}",
    unpCredential.UserNamePasswordValidationMode);
Console.WriteLine("CachedLogonTokenLifetime.Minutes: {0}",
    unpCredential.CachedLogonTokenLifetime.Minutes );
Console.WriteLine("CacheLogonTokens: {0}",
    unpCredential.CacheLogonTokens );
Console.WriteLine("MaxCachedLogonTokens: {0}",
    unpCredential.MaxCachedLogonTokens );
            
Console.ReadLine();

Console.ReadLine()

Remarks

Possible values are:

If this property is set to Custom, the service uses the object returned by CustomUserNamePasswordValidator to validate user names and passwords in incoming messages.

Note

When a WCF service is hosted in Internet Information Services (IIS) using transport-level security and the UserNamePasswordValidationMode property is set to Custom, the custom authentication scheme uses a subset of Windows authentication. That is because in this scenario, IIS performs Windows authentication prior to WCF invoking the custom authenticator.

When the value of this property is set to MembershipProvider, specify the membership provider by setting the MembershipProvider property, and then the membership provider instance specified by the MembershipProvider property is used to validate the username and password in incoming messages.
