ADFS - AD and LDAP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Team, 

    I have been asked to find out about using ADFS with AD and LDAP. I know it will work, but what I am wondering is, can ADFS authenticate against both AD and LDAP? So if for one claim we want to use AD and another we want to use LDAP can that be done? 

    Thank you,

  • The current ADFS version (3.0) cannot authenticate against LDAP.

    This will be possible when ADFS 4.0 (Server 2016) is GA.

    In terms of authorization, yes, you can use both AD and LDAP to generate claims.

    For LDAP, you need to add it as an authorization store via the wizard.
