TfsConnection.GetAuthenticatedIdentity Method

Gets the identity that authenticated with the server.

Namespace:  Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client
Assembly:  Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client (in Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.dll)

public function GetAuthenticatedIdentity(
	identity : TeamFoundationIdentity


Type: Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Framework.Client.TeamFoundationIdentity

The variable to store the retrieved identity.

When Team Foundation Server impersonation is used, the identity that is returned will be the identity that is performing the impersonation, not the user who is making the call. Therefore, the AuthorizedIdentity is usually the correct identity to use from this class.
