Properties

Name Description
Public property AttributesSet Property to marshal attributes.
Public property Descriptor The identity descriptor for this identity. The unique identifier for the identity's provider. Clients send identification to the server when they authenticate with TFS. Used for many identity management tasks such as [AddMemberToApplicationGroup] and [ReadIdentity]. TFS artifacts are either associated with this identifier or the identity's [TeamFoundationId].
Public property DisplayName Full name of the identity for display purposes. The display name can come from the identity provider—like Active Directory or ACS—or may have been set as a custom display name within TFS.
Public property IsActive Indicates that the identity is "current" with the provider—that is either read from source or being synced. It does not mean that it is a member of TFS Valid Users group. Use the [IsMember] query to answer that.
Public property IsContainer Determines if this identity contains identities—that is, is it a group?
Public property LocalPropertiesSet
Public property MemberOf
Public property MemberOfSet Identity descriptors for groups that contain this identity.
Public property Members
Public property MembersSet Identity descriptors for members of this identity.
Public property PropertiesSet
Public property TeamFoundationId Identifier assigned within TFS - unique throughout a host. TFS artifacts are either associated with this identifier or the identity's Descriptor.
Public property UniqueName
Public property UniqueUserId This represents the ID to distinguish deleted accounts from each other (joe:1 versus joe:3).
