How to: Deploy a claims provider in SharePoint 2013

Published: July 16, 2012

Learn how to deploy a SharePoint 2013 claims provider by using the features infrastructure and creating a class that inherits from SPClaimProviderFeatureReceiver.

Applies to:  SharePoint Foundation 2013 | SharePoint Server 2013 

The easiest way to deploy a claims provider is by using the features infrastructure. To do this, first define a feature and a feature receiver that derives from the SPClaimProviderFeatureReceiver class, and override the base properties.

The following is an example of how to do this.

public class MyClaimProviderFeatureReceiver : SPClaimProviderFeatureReceiver
    {
        public override string ClaimProviderAssembly { get { return typeof(MyClaimProvider).Assembly.FullName; } }
        public override string ClaimProviderType { get { return typeof(MyClaimProvider).FullName; } }
        public override string ClaimProviderDisplayName
        {
            get
            {
                return StringResourceManager.GetString(MyLocalizedClaimProviderName);
            }
        }
        public override string ClaimProviderDescription
        {
            get
            {
                return StringResourceManager.GetString(MyLocalizedClaimProviderDescription);
            }
            }
    }

The following is a sample that demonstrates how to define a feature and a feature receiver that derives from SPClaimProviderFeatureReceiver and override the base properties.


// Sample claims provider feature receiver class through which
// the sample claims provider registers itself 
// with the Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Claims.SPClaimProviderManager class.

using System;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Claims;

namespace MySample.Sample.Server.SampleClaimsProvider
{
    /// <summary>
    /// The NameIdentifierClaimProviderFeatureReceiver class is a feature receiver class
    /// that registers the claims provider with the claims provider manager.
    /// </summary>
    
    [Microsoft.SharePoint.Security.SharePointPermission(System.Security.Permissions.SecurityAction.Demand, ObjectModel = true)]
    public sealed class NameIdentifierClaimProviderFeatureReceiver : SPClaimProviderFeatureReceiver
    {
        #region Private Methods
        /// <summary>
        /// Because use of base keyword can lead to unverifiable code inside a lambda expression, 
        /// this function is created as a wrapper for the base.FeatureActivated function.
        /// This function gets called in the following lambda expression.
        /// </summary>
        
        /// <param name="properties">Represents the properties of a feature activation.</param>
        /// <returns> void </returns>

        private void ExecBaseFeatureActivated(Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)
        {
            base.FeatureActivated(properties);
        }
        #endregion Private Methods

        /// assembly.</returns>
        public override string ClaimProviderAssembly
        {
            get{ return typeof(SampleNameIdClaimProvider).Assembly.FullName; }
        }

        /// <summary>

        {
            get{ return typeof(NameIdentifierClaimProvider).FullName; }
        }

        public override string ClaimProviderDisplayName
        {
            get{ return "Sample NameId Claim Provider"; }
        }

        /// <summary>

        /// </summary>

        public override string ClaimProviderDescription

                return "This feature adds SampleNameId claim type in the SAML token created by the STS.";
            }
        }

        /// <summary>

        public override void FeatureActivated(Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)
        {     
            {
                ExecBaseFeatureActivated(properties);
            }
