Hi, I was hoping someone could help me with a problem I'm trying to solve.
I'm setting up a WCF security application to run on our application server that will be used to verify client data portal requests. I have the application running and the client side data portal fetch triggers the IAuthorizeDataPortal.Authorize method that I have implemented. The issue is that I need to get a specific variable from the data portal request and the client's active directory username to verify that they have the proper access rights for the data.
I know that three objects are passed into the Authorize method: ObjectType, RequestObject and DataPortalOperation. I am just at a loss at how to retrieve the variable from the object(s).
I should have also said that I am using CSLA.NET 4.0 and VB.NET.
if (ApplicationContext.AuthenticationType != "Windows")
ApplicationContext.User = request.Principal;
is set by the DataPortal before AuthorizeRequest is called.
So any context values set on the client in ClientContext and GlobalContext + the user principal when not WindowsPrincipal is set and available for use in the AuthorizeRequest implmenetation.
