true if the claims provider supports information about mapping to entities; otherwise false.


When you include additional claims in a user's security token, you are augmenting claims. If you want to support claims augmentation, you must implement this property to return true. In addition, you must also implement the FillClaimsForEntity() method in the SPClaimProvider class.

For more information about claims augmentation, see How to: Create a Claims Provider and Claims Provider.The following code example shows how to enable support for claims augmentation.


// Supports claims augmentation
public override bool SupportsEntityInformation
    get { return true; }
