Client side people picker not working when using ADFS as claim provider RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have implemented a client side people by following the below link from Microsoft. This works fine with Windows authentication.


    But this people control doesn't work with SAML claims when I used ADFS as claim provider.

    Any idea about  this issue?

  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that the client side people picker not work when use ADFS as claim provider.

    When we are searching for a user, we cannot go directly to ADFS because there is no search function.  Instead, we use a custom claim provider to query directly to some authentication store or directory such as Active Directory to retrieve information about a list of users in order to provide name resolution.

    As a workaround, we can override the fill method to bind with People picker like the article below:
