EasyTerritory (version 3.76.00+) supports Windows ADFS using OpenID- Connect authentication protocol.  ADFS is a Single sign-on (SSO) feature that enables a user to login to the EasyTerritory application through ADFS sign-on page.  ADFS will authenticate the user using Active Directory credentials and direct them to EasyTerritory to access the application.


The advantages of leveraging Windows ADFS with your EasyTerritory application are:

– Simple streamlined SSO access to your EasyTerritory application through company’s Windows ADFS sign-on page.

– Strengthens security with users not needing to remember additional usernames and passwords.

– Ability for companies to control users’ access to EasyTerritory within their Active Directory.

– User’s detail information is stored in Active Directory not in EasyTerritory.

– Supports multi-factor authentication (MFA).


– You will need to install ADFS on Windows 2016 or above.
