ADFS Implementation - unable to connect to ADFS signon

I am attempting to use ADFS on 2008R2 for a 3rd party application from INFOR called ION Activity Deck. When I attempt to connect is unable to browse the page.

Using the MS Troubleshooting I can hook to my server using "https://myserver.local//adfs/ls/federationserverservice.asmx", as specified in MS article. I get back XML code. I can also attach to IdpInitiatedSign.aspx page. This has got me thinking the issue is the 3rd party package.

However should I get default page if I open "https://myserver.local/afds/ls"   ? That comes back with an unable to load error.  I am an AFDS rookie and I am trying to research some more issues myself, but I am hitting a roadblock here.

check two things


Above URL should get resolved to ADFS metadata


This should allow logon to current user in webpage

If above TWO get succeeded, then ADFS is setup fine

I am able to do both, I am sure it's the 3rd party app that is the issue, this confirms it ... problem is of course the Infor package support group doesn't know anything about ADFS and how it integrates with their product. So they just point the finger.

U need to setup relying party trust and claim provider trust with ADFS and 3rd party app and configure the claims as appropriate

However claims configuration can be explored by 3rd party app only
