<behavior> of <endpointBehaviors>

The behavior element contains a collection of settings for the behavior of an endpoint. Each behavior is indexed by its name. Endpoints can link to each behavior through this name.


<system.ServiceModel>

    <endpointBehaviors>
       <behavior name="String" />
    </endpointBehaviors>
  </behaviors>
</system.ServiceModel>
