Configure federation using SAML (ADFS 2.0 and 3.0) by following the steps below:
- Your ADFS federation metadata URL, which should be something like: "https://adfs.mydomain.com/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml"
- The domain name used to log in to your Active Directory domain, for example: myowndomain.nl or myactivedirectorydomain.local.
- Your BlueDolphin site URL
- Your logo in .png format (makes it easier to distinguish SSO from other types of authentication)
- Specify the method (OpenID or SAML)
2. The ValueBlue Support team will create a federation metadata endpoint for you based on this information and send to you the URL of this endpoint (this value will be referred to as %bdfederationmetadataurl%). You will need this URL to set up the relying trust.
3. In Server Manager, select Tools, and then select ADFS Management.
