EndpointDiscoveryBehavior Class

Controls the content of the EndpointDiscoveryMetadata returned by a discovery endpoint.


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

public class EndpointDiscoveryBehavior : IEndpointBehavior

The EndpointDiscoveryBehavior type exposes the following members.

Public methodEndpointDiscoveryBehaviorCreates a new instance of the EndpointDiscoveryBehavior class.

Public propertyContractTypeNamesGets the contract type names associated with the endpoint.
Public propertyEnabledGets or sets a value that controls the discoverability of the associated endpoint.
Public propertyExtensionsGets the extensions associated with the endpoint.
Public propertyScopesGets the scopes associated with the endpoint.

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.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This behavior is used to configure the various discovery settings for an endpoint, such as its discoverability, scopes, and any custom extensions to its metadata. A user creates a new instance of this type and adds it to the specific endpoint whose EndpointDiscoveryMetadata must be configured. It can also be used to turn off discovery for specific endpoint using the Enabled property. Note that the EndpointDiscoveryBehavior on an endpoint is ignored if ServiceDiscoveryBehavior is not present. You cannot make an endpoint discoverable through EndpointDiscoveryMetadata without first adding a ServiceDiscoveryBehavior to your service.
