Add a Claim Description
Applies To: Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0
In an account partner organization, administrators create claims to represent a user's membership in a group or role or to represent some data about a user, for example, a user’s employee identification number.
In a resource partner organization, administrators create corresponding claims to represent groups and users that can be recognized as resource users. Because outgoing claims in the account partner organization map to incoming claims in the resource partner organization, the resource partner is able to accept the credentials that the account partner provides.
You can use the following procedure to add a claim.
Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, on the local computer is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).
