To create a claims provider trust using federation metadata

To add a new claims provider trust, using the AD FS Management snap-in, by automatically importing configuration data about the partner from federation metadata that the partner has published to a local network or to the Internet, perform the following procedure on a federation server in the resource partner organization.

Note

Though it has long been common practice to use certificates with unqualified host names such as https://myserver, these certificates have no security value and can enable an attacker to impersonate a Federation Service that is publishing federation metadata. Therefore, when querying federation metadata, you should only use a fully qualified domain name such as https://myserver.contoso.com.

  1. In Server Manager, click Tools, and then select AD FS Management.

  2. Under Actions, click Add Relying Party Trust.
