ADFS 3.0 and ADFS 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are using ADFS 3.0 in our organisation, but one of our customers has Windows 2008 R2.

    We have only tested ADFS 3.0 with another ADFS 3.0. I was wondering if a deployment with ADFS 3.0 and our end, and ADFS 2.0 at the customer's end would work?

    Regards,

    P.

  • Depends upon if you are going to use features which are present in ADFS 3.0 and not in ADFS 2.0, otherwise there should not be any difference from protocol aspect.

    I have used ADFS 2.0 with ADFS 3.0 clients and vice-versa, depends upon what your application is going to do or what features in ADFS 3.0 it would use which is not present in ADFS 2.0.

    From Protocol standpoint of SAML 2.0 or Ws-fed there is no difference

  • Thanks!

    Is there some documentation on MSDN (or TechNet) that outlines the features in ADFS 3.0 which are not backwards compatible with ADFS 2.0?

  • Hi,
    Please refer to the similar thread as below for reference:

    In addition, since the issue relates to ADFS, I would still suggest you post the question in ADFS forum.
