Cookie issues with IE8 + IE10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello guys,

    our users are experiencing problems when logging into an external identity provider via our ADFS 3.0 running on W20012R2.

    This only happens in some versions of Internet Explorer where the ADFS context cookie (MSISContext) is not set in the browser and therefore not sent in subsequent requests, which in turn leads to ADFS 3.0 not being able to correlate the request to the external Claims provider and the response received from the external Claims provider.

    On all other browsers (Chrome, Firefox, etc) this works independent of version. When we add * to trusted sites (https) it works. is the domain used by both web shop and ADFS.

    Any idea?

  • Hi Sausis,

    As far as I know, the website listed in the trusted sites is assigned a Low security setting and is allowed to perform more powerful operations.
    According to your description,  ADFS context cookie may be blocked if it is not added into the trusted sites.

    Best regards
