Wim Decorte and I are pleased to announce the release of another Addendum in our series of White Papers on extending the oAuth Authentication capabilities of the FileMaker Platform. This one deals with the use of Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).
FileMaker Server has been able to authenticate against Active Directory since 2004 (FileMaker® Pro 7. In order to authenticate users against Active Directory, your FileMaker Server has to be a member server in that Active Directory domain so that FileMaker Server, through the Operating System configuration, would know what domain controller to query for needed information.
But what if you cannot have the FileMaker Server in your Domain? This Addendum addresses that issue.
