Description

The Register-AdfsAuthenticationProvider cmdlet registers an external authentication provider as a provider in Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS). Use the Get-AdfsAuthenticationProvider cmdlet to get a list of registered authentication providers.

Examples

Example 1: Register an authentication provider

PS C:\> $TypeName = "ExternalAuthMethod.ExternalAuthProvider, ExternalAuthProvider, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=365143bb27e7ac8b, processorArchitecture=MSIL"
PS C:\> Register-AdfsAuthenticationProvider -TypeName $TypeName -Name "MyExternalAuthProvider" -ConfigurationFilePath ".\configdata.txt"

The first command creates a variable named $TypeName that contains the configuration data for an external provider.

The second command registers the authentication provider by using the data stored in the $TypeName variable.

Parameters

-ConfigurationFilePath

Specifies the fully qualified file path of a file that contains authentication provider configuration data.

You can also upload the file to the Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) configuration store and make it available to the authentication provider. Use this method if you want to provide additional information that pertains to a specific customer when you initialize the authentication provider. Any usage of this method is specific to the vendor that supplies the authentication provider.
