  • this link no longer exists

  • Fantastic job guys!!!  Frankly, this sort of thing should be in MSDN and fully supported.

  • Nick Great job on the content!

  • Excellent one !!!

  • deep study, thanks for sharing!

  • Is there anybody at MS that knows how to create a Word document?

  • I've increased readability of this article.

  • I'm surprised there is no information in regards to managing Relying Party Trust certificates.  When you have numerous RPs, each with their own certificates and expiration dates, being able to quickly and easily see this information is important to business.

    Is there a way to list all of the expiration dates of the Relying Party Trust certificates?

    Powershell can list the Relying Party Trust information by using the get-adfsrelyingpartytrust.  The certificate information is under the EncryptionCertificate portion, but the EncryptionCertificate info cannot specifically be queried by itself to show only the expiration dates of all the servers.

    The closest thing I have been able to come up with is this command:

    Get-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust | Format-List Name, EncryptionCertificate

    However, this still shows too much information and it is not something that can be easily exported to a CSV file to have a column specifically for expiration date in order to easily manage and see expiring certificates for our clients (in order to be proactive).

    I have scoured the web and cannot find one thing remotely close to this.  I'm surprised no other organizations have requested this information.

  • The best ADFS reference out there!

  • Awesome ADFS reference - thanks very much.
