AD FS 3.0/4.0 Overview

Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) enables a decentralized identity sharing between business partners by implementing the WS-Federation protocol and standards such as WS-Trust and Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). AD FS is used to generate assertions for users. These assertions are sent back to Talend Administration Center, where the user settings and roles are assigned based on the AD FS configuration.

You can configure AD FS 3.0 on Windows Server 2012 R2, or AD FS 4.0 on Windows Server 2016 to enable secure identity management and single sign-on (SSO) access to Talend Administration Center.

For more information on system requirements and getting started with AD FS, refer to the AD FS documentation.
