  5. Under select file to import, click on choose file and select the IDP metadata and click on save.

Configure the AD FS Server :


  1. Find the SP metadata from this link. Since it’s a sample metadata, make sure to edit the sample metadata and replace the entity-id and location with your actual account URL.
  2.  Navigate within the AD FS Management application to AD FS Trust Relationships Relying Party Trusts and click Add Relying Party Trust to start the wizard.
  3. Click Start and under “Add Relying Party Trust Wizard” select the second radio button and browse to the location of the Service provider metadata and click next
  4. Under Display name, choose any name you like and click on next.
  5. For Multi-factor authentication choose the desired option and click next
  6. Under Issuance Authorization Rules, choose the desired option and click next.
  7. Review your settings and click on next and in the next screen check “edit claim rules” and click close.
  8. If the Edit Claim Rules wizard has not opened automatically, you can access it from the AD FS Management application under AD FS -> Trust Relationships -> Relying Party Trusts, by selecting your Adobe SSO relying party trust and clicking Edit Claim Rules.
  9. Under Claim rules click on Add Rule and configure a rule using the template Send LDAP attributes as Claims for your attribute store, mapping the LDAP Attribute E-Mail-Addresses to Outgoing Claim Type E-Mail Address and click Finish.
  10. Again, using the Edit Claim Rules wizard, add a rule using the template Transform an incoming claim to convert Incoming claims type E-Mail Address with Outgoing Claim Type as Name ID and Outgoing Name ID Format as Email. Select Pass through all claim values radio button and click finish.

  11. Using the Edit Claim Rules wizard, add a rule using the template Send Claims Using a Custom Rule containing the following rule:
    c:[Type == “”, Issuer == “AD AUTHORITY”] => issue(store = “Active Directory”, types = (“Email”, “FirstName”, “LastName”), query = “;mail,givenName,sn;{0}”, param = c.Value);
  12. Click ok to save the rule and test the SSO functionality.
