AddressFilterMode Enumeration

Specifies the type of match semantics used by the dispatcher to route incoming messages to the correct endpoint.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public enum AddressFilterMode

Member nameDescription
ExactIndicates a filter that does an exact match on the address of an incoming message.
PrefixIndicates a filter does the longest prefix matches on the address of an incoming message.
AnyIndicates a filter that matches on any address of an incoming message.

Using this value turns off the WCF address filter check. Any message, no matter what its WS-Adressing:To identity is accepted.

The value of the AddressFilterMode enumeration is set on the AddressFilterMode property.

The longest prefix match criterion specified by Prefix requires that the destination address be matched by the largest number of leading address bits in the filter. The default value is Exact.
