I have a custom claims provider and now I got this new requirement to augment some new claims based on claims which user already has.

How can I get user claims which are already augmented (eg. those coming from ADFS)?

You can get claims through below code:

        var claimsPrincipal = Page.User as IClaimsPrincipal;
        if (claimsPrincipal != null)
            IClaimsIdentity claimsIdentity = (IClaimsIdentity)claimsPrincipal.Identity;
            var userClaims = claimsIdentity.Claims;

But if you want to add the claim at the time of augmentation, then probably following link guide you more.

Let me know if this helps you.

    Make sure you add a reference to Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll which comes with Windows Identity Foundation
