Migration Site Collection from one ADFS to Another One


  • Hi,

    Hope you are all doing good.

    I have site collection on a first FARM with Federated authentication set and my user token is for example "i:0ǵ.t|users|s-1-5-21-1337251388-3699962215-1789368597-583315".

    I have a second farm with the same federated authentication and the token for the same user is now "i:0ǵ.t|adfs20|s-1-5-21-1337251388-3699962215-1789368597-583315.

    For SharePoint, those users are not the same.

    My Question is how can i migrate , make that SharePoint understand that that users are the same and keep permissions in the second farm and all artefacts that belong to the user in first farm?

    the only differences are |Users| and |adfs20|.

    Thanks a lot in advance for you replies.

  • Mostly it depends on how you're performing backup & restoration approach not token. At the end of day this claim token mapped to attributes you choose during configuration of ADFS/SAML. 

    I configured SAML but haven't done migration piece and I'm only assuming :)

    Hope this helps.
