Property Value

Type: System.String

The claim type.

The Type property provides the semantic content of the claim, that is, it states what the claim is about. For example, a claim with a claim type of GivenName (“”) represents a user’s first name. The claim type is typically a URI; however, you are not limited to any specific format other than that it must be representable as a string. The only general requirement is that the claim issuer and the claim consumer must agree about the meaning of the claim. Constants for the well-known claim types used by Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) are available through the ClaimTypes class. The claim value is provided by the Value property.
