an error occurred during an attempt to read the federation metadata in ADFS 3.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am quite new to ADFS, While adding RP in ADFS console getting below error. However I was able to add other relying party without getting any error.

    I can browse the RP URL from IE.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • To build a federation trust between AD FS and another application, we need to exchange metadata. Depending on the application concerned, this might be exchanged through an online endpoint or manual exchange of data via an XML document. If you're adding an RP, you'll need to know the URL for the published metadata or ask the RP to provide you with the XML document so you can manually import it. If you're getting the above error it means that's not the published metadata URL of the RP or you don't have access to it (e.g. AD FS cannot reach it).

  • Hi Mylo,

    Sorry for late reply, as I was on holiday.

    I can access the metadata XML file from server. Let me check what happens if I import the XML file.
