ADFS 3.0 Client Authentication Error 1000 - Federation to AzureAD RRS feed

  • Question

  • At one Customer we see ADFS Events 1000 and 111 regardint the Federation between ADFS and AzureAD. Generally the Federation works ok, but we still have some issues.

    Logs telling me that there was a token issuance request *from the client* that cannot be fulfilled.
    So I enabled ADFS Auditing for further and got some more Detail.
    Event 413 tells again that token request for AzureAD federation from an Application could not be fulfilled - but gives me no idea why it failed.
    So I scanned for correlated Events. Here is what I got in chronologic order.
    Event 403 (Client Info & Endpoint)

        An active request was received at STS with RST containing:

    Event 300 (The error - giving me no hint what exactly failed...)
       The Federation Service failed to issue a token as a result of an error during processing of the WS-Trust request.
       Activity ID: 36ff2470-116f-4633-ab0c-8f0849f20450

    Event 413 (Summary)
       An error occurred during processing of a token request. The data in this event may have the identity of the caller (application) that made this request. The data includes an Activity ID that you can cross-reference to error or warning events to help diagnose the problem that caused this error.
