IContextManager Interface

Defines an interface that allows you to get and set the context on the channel.

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

public interface IContextManager

For channels that use WSHttpContextBinding with the NotAllowed value set, the context cannot be retrieved on the client using IContextManager because a new channel that establishes a session is created each time GetProperty<T> is called to enforce NotAllowed semantics on a channel. This means that even though the context is properly propagated back to the client in this case, it cannot be retrieved using IContextManager. You can still retrieve it using ContextMessageProperty as shown in the following code.

using (new OperationContextScope((IContextChannel)channel))
    ContextMessageProperty context;
    if (ContextMessageProperty.TryGet(OperationContext.Current.IncomingMessageProperties, out context))
