The SamlAction type exposes the following members.

Public methodSamlAction()Initializes a new instance of the SamlAction class.
Public methodSamlAction(String)Initializes a new instance of the SamlAction class using the specified action.
Public methodSamlAction(String, String)Initializes a new instance of the SamlAction class using the specified action.

Public propertyActionGets or sets the action that the subject of the SamlAuthorizationDecisionStatement can perform on the specified resource.
Public propertyIsReadOnlyGets a value that indicates whether the properties of this instance are read-only.
Public propertyNamespaceGets or sets the XML namespace in which the Action property is defined.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMakeReadOnlyCauses this instance to be read-only.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadXmlReads the <saml:Action> element using the specified XML reader.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodWriteXmlWrites the SamlAction into the specified XML writer as a <saml:Action> element.

The SamlAction class corresponds the <saml:Action> XML element which is defined in the OASIS SAML v1.1 specification.

Use the SamlAction class when specifying a claim about the ability of a subject SamlAuthorizationDecisionStatement to perform a specified action on a specified resource. Use the SamlAction class to specify the desired action and the SamlAccessDecision class to specify the access decision. The Action property represents that action and the Namespace property specifies the XML namespace in which the action is defined.
