ServiceSecurityAuditBehavior.MessageAuthenticationAuditLevel Property

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

public AuditLevel MessageAuthenticationAuditLevel { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.AuditLevel
One of the AuditLevel enumeration values. The default is None.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

set and value are not valid members of AuditLevel.

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service applications have two levels where security can be enforced. At the service level, all methods of the service are enforced by the same security policy. Individual methods in the service can have a different (more stringent) security policy. Use the MessageAuthenticationAuditLevel property to control which message level events are audited.

You can also set this value using the <serviceSecurityAudit> element in a client application configuration file.

The following code creates an instance of the ServiceSecurityAuditBehavior class and sets this property.

// Create a new auditing behavior and set the log location.
ServiceSecurityAuditBehavior newAudit = 
    new ServiceSecurityAuditBehavior();
newAudit.AuditLogLocation = 
    AuditLogLocation.Application;
newAudit.MessageAuthenticationAuditLevel = 
    AuditLevel.SuccessOrFailure;
newAudit.ServiceAuthorizationAuditLevel = 
    AuditLevel.SuccessOrFailure;

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
