WSFederationAuthenticationModule.SignIn Method (String)

.NET Framework (current version)

Performs sign-in to a security token service (STS) through the WS-Federation protocol.

Namespace:   System.IdentityModel.Services
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel.Services (in System.IdentityModel.Services.dll)

public virtual void SignIn(
	string ControlId


Type: System.String

The WSFAM saves this value in the wctx parameter in the WS-Federation sign in request; however, the module does not use it when processing sign-in requests or sign-in responses. You can set it to any value. It does not have to be unique. For more information, see the CreateSignInRequest method.

The default implementation invokes the RedirectToIdentityProvider method to perform the sign-in.
