Intergrating AEM with ADFS


Level 1


Is there anyway to connect an ADFS server with AEM, similar to the way LDAP works, and what is the best approach to take.

Follow  AT high level steps are

1)    At ADFS Configure
*   Relaying party & make the nameid format used is same you configure in SAML authentication handler at AEM.
*    In the ADFS outgoing configure to pass uid (generally windows login name) & group.

2)   At cq configure
*    Saml authentication handler. (Nameid, groupattribute, username attribute should match what is configured in ADFS)
*    Upload public certificate at /etc/key/saml/@idp_cert
*    Configure referer filter.

File a daycare if you need additional help. Because a simple wrong configure mistake can lead to looping problem in browser only.

Hello Sham,

We are still trying to get the integration working with ADFS. We have followed all the steps to import the ADFS Public certificate under idp_cert and we now have below error in the log trace

Below are the configurations in Adobe Granite SAML 2.0 Authentication Handler
