public class GetFederationTokenResponse : AmazonWebServiceResponse

The GetFederationTokenResponse type exposes the following members



Public Property ContentLength System.Int64 Inherited from Amazon.Runtime.AmazonWebServiceResponse.
Public Property Credentials Amazon.SecurityToken.Model.Credentials

Gets and sets the property Credentials.

The temporary security credentials, which include an access key ID, a secret access key, and a security (or session) token.

Note: The size of the security token that STS APIs return is not fixed. We strongly recommend that you make no assumptions about the maximum size. As of this writing, the typical size is less than 4096 bytes, but that can vary. Also, future updates to AWS might require larger sizes.

Public Property FederatedUser Amazon.SecurityToken.Model.FederatedUser

Gets and sets the property FederatedUser.

Identifiers for the federated user associated with the credentials (such as arn:aws:sts::123456789012:federated-user/Bob or 123456789012:Bob). You can use the federated user's ARN in your resource-based policies, such as an Amazon S3 bucket policy.

Public Property HttpStatusCode System.Net.HttpStatusCode Inherited from Amazon.Runtime.AmazonWebServiceResponse.
Public Property PackedPolicySize System.Int32

Gets and sets the property PackedPolicySize.

A percentage value indicating the size of the policy in packed form. The service rejects policies for which the packed size is greater than 100 percent of the allowed value.

Public Property ResponseMetadata Amazon.Runtime.ResponseMetadata Inherited from Amazon.Runtime.AmazonWebServiceResponse.


To get temporary credentials for a role by using GetFederationToken

var response = client.GetFederationToken(new GetFederationTokenRequest 
    DurationSeconds = 3600,
    Name = "Bob",
    Policy = "{\"Version\":\"2012-10-17\",\"Statement\":[{\"Sid\":\"Stmt1\",\"Effect\":\"Allow\",\"Action\":\"s3:*\",\"Resource\":\"*\"}]}"

Credentials credentials = response.Credentials;
FederatedUser federatedUser = response.FederatedUser;
integer packedPolicySize = response.PackedPolicySize;
