inSync Cloud Editions: File:/tick.png Elite Plus File:/tick.png Elite File:/cross.png Enterprise File:/cross.png Business

Install Active Directory Federation Services

You must install the Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) 2.0 software on a computer that you are preparing for the federation server role or the federation server proxy role. For more information on how you can install the ADFS software and its prerequisites, see the Microsoft documentation.

Configure ADFS to integrate with inSync Cloud

After you have installed ADFS 2.0, perform the following actions:

  1. Create trust between inSync Cloud and ADFS by configuring ADFS with a relying party rule, which is inSync Cloud.
  2. Configure inSync Cloud to trust ADFS 2.0. The trust allows ADFS 2.0 to send claims to inSync Cloud.
  3. Set up a web application and site to consume these claims.

Create a new federation service

Note: Skip this step, if you already have an ADFS 2.0 Federation Server configured on the computer.

To create a new federation service

  1. On the Start menu, click Administrative Tools > ADFS 2.0 Management. The ADFS 2.0 Management window appears.
  2. On the right pane, under Actions, click on the ADFS 2.0 Federation Server Configuration Wizard link. The ADFS 2.0 Federation Server Configuration Wizard appears.

  5. In the SSL certificate box, browse and select the ADFS 2.0 server certificate, and then click Next.
  6. View summary, click Finish.

Create a relying party

After you have set up the Federation Server, the next step is to create a relying party.

To create a relying party

  1. On the Start menu, click Administrative Tools > ADFS 2.0 Management. The ADFS 2.0 window appears.

    => issue(Type = "insync_auth_token", Value = "{value of SSO Token generated from inSync Console"});

  4. Click OK.

Configure certificate for ADFS

You can configure a trusted party certificate or use the self-signed certificate. ADFS uses this certificate to sign the tokens it sends out. This step is optional.

Configure single sign-on

Before you begin

Before you configure the single sign-on settings with inSync Cloud, ensure that you have an ID provider certificate. If you do not have an ID provider certificate, follow these steps:

  1. On the Start menu, click Administrative Tools > ADFS 2.0 Management. The ADFS 2.0 Management window appears.
  2. Expand to the Service folder.
  3. Click Certificates. The Certificates view appears in the right pane.

  8. Select DER encoded binary X.509 (.CER), and then click Next.
  9. On the File to Export page, type the file name as Cert.cer, and then click Next.
  10. Click Finish.

    The file is saved in .cer format. To convert this file into .pem format, download and install the latest version of OpenSSL tool for Windows from the following location: http://www.slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html.

    Note: OpenSSL requires Visual C++ 2008 Redistributables. For more information, see Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86).

  11. Save the cert.cer file at the following location: C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin.
  12. On the command prompt, change directory to C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin>, and then run the following command:
    openssl x509 -inform der -in cert.cer -out cert.pem   
    
  13. Open and edit the cert.pem file in a Notepad. The certificate opens in the following format:

        
        “-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
        
        ………. …..
        
        -----END CERTIFICATE-----"
        

  14. Copy the content of the cert.pem certificate and provide it when you configure the single sign-on settings by using the inSync Master Management Console.

Configure the single sign-on settings

To configure the single sign-on settings

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click > Settings.
  2. Click the Single Sign-on tab and then click Edit.
  3. Provide the following appropriate information.
