How to Check if your SharePoint 2010 Web Application Uses Claims Authentication?

In this small article we will discuss how we can check if a SharePoint 2010 web application is using claims authentication or not. Also you can check my last article on How to Configure Claim Based Authentication in SharePoint 2010 here and also you can check How to Switch from Classic to Claims Authentication in SharePoint 2010 here.

To check if a SharePoint 2010 web application is using claims authentication or not we can use PowerShell command. This command will return True if the web application uses claims authentication and returns False if it does not use claims authentication. Below is the PoweShell command.

$web = Get-SPWebApplication “<URL for Application>”
$web.UseClaimsAuthentication
