Created by j.moore, last modified by r.turner on 22 Jul 2020
  1. Once you have configured your AD FS server and set up AD FS in Contensis, you should see a new Sign in with AD FS button on the Contensis login screen.
The Contensis log in window with local, and AD FS account options.
  1. Press Sign in with AD FS to be redirected to your AD FS logon screen.
The AD FS log in with organisation account screen.
  1. Enter your username and password and press Sign in. You will be logged into Contensis.

If this is the first time a user has logged in, a user will be created in Contensis with a username which matches their AD username. If a Contensis user already exists with the same user name, then the user will be converted to an AD FS user. No permissions or group assignments will be lost.

All users created via an AD FS login are added to a system group called AD Users, this enables you to give the AD Users some default permissions.
