Introduction

Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) is a technology that extends your Active Directory configuration to services outside of your infrastructure. With ADFS, you can give users access to MyWorkDrive using existing sign on credentials and integrate MyWorkDrive with other access portals such as Office 365 Web Apps for single sign on access (SSO).

This guide was written and tested on Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016, earlier versions of windows server are not unsupported for SSO ADFS integration.

Before beginning ADFS Integration with MyWorkDrive, confirm your ADFS is fully operational. The easiest way to verify your ADFS will authenticate you is to click on the link below (with your domain specified)  https://fqdn.domain.com/adfs/ls/IdpInitiatedSignon.aspx

Once ADFS MyWorkDrive is completed, Optionally enable Two Factor Authentication with DUO using the guide located here.

Support for SSO capabilities within MyWorkDrive are only available on our Enterprise plans. Please contact our sales team if you are interested in upgrading your plan.

We recommend split DNS for the ADFS and MyWorkDrive Servers (internally the ADFS and MyWorkDrive servers resolve to internal IP Addresses) –  our guide is
