Hi Colleen,

Well, IWAAC does not "support" ADFS but IWAAC and ADFS share the same purpose!

In short, in a typical ADFS scenario, unauthenticated users are redirected to an external authentication form (ADFS) when they hit an application's page (e.g. Jira, Confluence). IWAAC does not work this way as it is installed on the application itself (e.g Jira, Confluence). When unauthenticated users hit an application's page, IWAAC will give them the opportunity to authenticate with the Kerberos protocol. Those users will then send a Kerberos ticket that IWAAC will validate against an Active Directory Domain Controller. So everything happens on the application itself and users are never redirected to an external authentication service such as ADFS.
