Hello all,

I have developed a project using MVC4 web API with rest client,i have rules and roles for each user to access the application so i have used windows authentication.When initializing proxy i get the current user identity which is correct and before calling web API i have handler class in this i set the credentials as default-credentials to the httpclienthandler. Since i set defaultcredentials the user identity which i get in the API controller is "Administrator" but i have logged in as a different user.Anybody can help me to get the user identity object in the API controller.




Thanks
Karthikeyan Mathiyalagan.

Hi, You can use custom httpcontext along with user info and pass that httpcontext as parameter when you call the webapi.
