CRM 2011 IFD and ADFS login page RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am setting up and IFD and have configured things correctly according to the Microsoft Partnersource video on Claims-based authentication and IFD.  When I go to my CRM URL, I am faced with this ADFS login page:

    I am wondering how to not show the ADFS login page when I go to my CRM URL.  I realize that ADFS has to authenticate the user with the login, but this is a pain.  I do not want users to have to enter their credentials every time they navigate to the URL.  I figured there would be a configuration setting that I could change to have CRM load automatically.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

  • This is exact the way the IFD-Deployment for CRM 2011 is working. 

    Have you tested both links? Internal and external URL? How are the urls in the Deployment Manager configured?

  • If you dont want users to enter the credentials every time they login, then you need not to configure IFD. Users internally can login to CRM without entering the credentials.

    Still if you want the IFD to be in your internal network also, then you need to access the CRM with internal URL.

    configure Claims-Internally.

  • Is there any way to have it set up so that internal users can login to CRM without credentials AND users outside the network are prompted to login?  I followed the guide for internal access and external access because I thought that without external access, how would users even use CRM unless they were on the network?  I am very new to the concept of IFD so please bear with me.

  • Yes, I have tested both links.  Currently, if I navigate to the links both internally and externally, they both display the login page pictured above.  The URLs in Deployment Manager all read 'internalcrm.mycompany.com'

  • Then you must have configured only external access and pointing the hostnames to same server will give you this result.

    Please check your IFD configuration from the first step and see how you have configured now.
