Type Parameters


Name Description
System_CAPS_pubproperty AuthenticationType

System_CAPS_pubproperty CrossRealmIssuerEndpoints

Gets the available endpoints of the user’s home realm identity provider.

System_CAPS_pubproperty CurrentServiceEndpoint

Gets or sets the current endpoint in use by a service.

System_CAPS_pubproperty IssuerEndpoints

Gets the available endpoints of the security token service (STS).

System_CAPS_pubproperty PolicyConfiguration

Name Description
System_CAPS_pubmethod Authenticate(AuthenticationCredentials)

Authenticates the logged on user with the service.

System_CAPS_pubmethod CreateChannelFactory()

Creates a WCF channel factory that uses the default Kerberos credentials.

System_CAPS_pubmethod CreateChannelFactory(ClientAuthenticationType)

Creates a WCF channel factory with a specified type of authentication.

System_CAPS_pubmethod CreateChannelFactory(ClientCredentials)

Creates a WCF channel factory using specified client credentials.

System_CAPS_pubmethod CreateChannelFactory(TokenServiceCredentialType)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetIdentityProvider(String)

Instances of the IServiceConfiguration<TService> and IServiceManagement<TService> interfaces are basically interchangeable, the only real difference being that the IServiceManagement<TService> interface exposes support for the AuthenticationCredentials class and a single Authenticate call that covers most scenarios.

For best performance, create an instance of this interface only one time per client session and re-use that instance as necessary.
