This article contains some screenshots which walk you through the process of configuring Skedda SSO with ADFS.

  • In your Server Manager, choose AD FS Management:

  • Choose "Edit Federation Service Properties..."

  • Copy the Federation Service identifier information for entry into the Skedda SSO settings page (as your Identity Provider ID):

  • Next, grab the URL path of your login endpoint which you'll provide as the "Login URL" on the Skedda SSO Settings page:

  • Next, add a new Relying Party Trust for Skedda:

  • The trust should be a Claims-aware trust:

  • Choose the option to enter data about the relying party manually:

  • Type "Skedda" as the display name:

  • In the "Configure Certificate" step, just click next (Skedda expects signed assertions without encryption at this level):

  • Enter the Skedda ACS URL in the "Configure URL" step:

  • Use the Skedda entity id for the "Relying party trust identifier" and make sure you click "Add":

  • Configure the Access Control Policy according to your needs (e.g. permit everyone):

  • Review your settings and click "Next":

  • Finish the wizard and check the option to configure claims:
