single sign on with ADFS and SharePoint 2013 saml 2.0 to 1.1 conversion RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have another query for single sign on with ADFS and SharePoint 2013.

    WE have a client who has claims in SAML 2.0 format. AS SharePoint does not accept SAML 2.0 we are using ADFS to pass 1.1 token to SharePoint 2013.

    WE know that ADFS accept SAML 2.0 token.

    My question is will ADFS accept 2.0 token as incoming claim request from client and send it to SharePoint 2013 as 1.1 token?

    We are successful in ADFS to sharepoint 2013 with email as incoming claim now the big question is whether ADFS will transform 2.0 to 1.1.

    Please advise.

  • Hi Amit,

    Sorry for taking some time to do research.

    If ADFS accept 2.0 toen as claim request, it will not send it to SharePoint 2013 as 1.1 token. For more information about ADFS 2.0 and 1.0, please refer to the following article:
