use ADFS to query LDAP and get list of users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    not sure if this is possible, pretty sure not the way ADFS works but thought I would ask.

    I have relaying trust which I send a hand full of ADFS claims, is it possible that I can use ADFSto query and get a list of users with those properties.

    basically, I am trying to get my website, to query the AD and build and keep an up-to-date address book.

  • Hello,

    I don't believe you can directly query AD using ADFS. What you can probably do is have a set of user attributes as claims. Each time a user login and access your application, you will get all the values as claims in SAML response and you can extract the values from the claims and update your backend app.

    But a much easier way might be for you to query AD directly using LDAP tools/API and get that information.
