SAML and Microsoft ADFS

SAML 2.0 single sign-on supports integration with Microsoft ADFS. ADFS is a service provided by Microsoft as a standard role for Windows Server that provides a web login using existing Active Directory credentials.

Serraview can only assist you with how to configure SAML on the Serraview instance. You will need to contact Microsoft if you require further assistance with setting up SAML with ADFS.


To use ADFS to log into your Serraview instance, you will need the following:

  • Active Directory instance where all users have an email address attribute.
  • Server running Windows Server.
  • Serraview’s SAML metadata file.
  • Optional - SSL certificate to sign your ADFS login page.
