Windows Authentication EF Impersonation


Your EF connection string is going to need to be set up for using a trusted connection.

You won’t need to set up Impersonation in your web.config, but you do need to be using Windows Authentication.

using (((WindowsIdentity)HttpContext.Current.User.Identity).Impersonate())
using (var dbContext = new MyEntityFrameworkContainer())

Any code inside the curly braces of the using statements will run as the authenticated user.
