"One of your on-premises Federation Service certificates is expiring" message in Office 365 portal


Office 365 ProPlus is being renamed to Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise. For more information about this change, read this blog post.


You receive the following message in the Microsoft Office 365 portal:

One of your on-premises Federation Service certificates is expiring. Failure to renew the certificate and update trust properties within 13 days will result in a loss of access to all Office 365 services for all users.


The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate or the token-signing certificate is about to expire. You may receive this message even if automatic certificate rollover is enabled for the token-signing certificate. 


To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Install the Microsoft Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell on the computer (if the module isn't already installed).
  2. Follow the steps in the "Scenario 1: The AD FS token-signing certificate expired" section in "There was a problem accessing the site" error from AD FS when a federated user signs in to Office 365, Azure, or Intune
  3. Follow the steps in How to update or repair the settings of a federated domain in Office 365, Azure, or Intune
