After hosting my application on server I am getting below error can some body will advice me what changes I need to make so that service will work fine?

System.InvalidOperationException: The contract operation 'OperationName' requires Windows identity for automatic impersonation. A Windows identity that represents the caller is not provided by binding ('WebHttpBinding','') for contract ('Contract Name',''.

Thanks in advance

Can you post the Code block which is throwing the error as well as the Binding Configurations used?
