Identity Provider Initiated Single Sign On - ADFS


We have recently implemented SSO using ADFS 2012

Thus far all of our SSO partners have supported Service Provider Initiated Single Sign on however we now have a new federation to create whereby they only support Indentity Provider Initiated Single Sign on.

Has anyone got any experience of implementing this? What is required?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Amit,

Yes I am.

I read about ADFS RelayState. Will that do what I am looking for?

if I understand correctly, your SP doesn't have URL and you need to provide IDP URL to your user?

You need to combine your metadataurl with relay partner identifier value in your adfs. Example:

Your metadata URL:

Append this at the end (Case sensitive)
