        var clientContext = TokenHelper.GetS2SClientContextWithWindowsIdentity(new Uri(
            sharepointUrl), Request.LogonUserIdentity);

        clientContext.Load(clientContext.Web.CurrentUser, user => user.LoginName);


        string result = "<h2>Web title retrieved using the managed client object model</h2>";
        result += "<p>" + clientContext.Web.Title + "</p>";


        ViewBag.Content = result;
        ViewBag.User = string.Format("Current UserName:{0}", clientContext.Web.CurrentUser.LoginName);
