Did you know there is an example of how to implement Federated Authentication available in the Sitecore 9 Habitat branch? The Feature.Accounts module configures the use of the Facebook provider, but it will also show additional buttons to any providers you configure in the config file:
Check it out today, and see how you could go about implementing your own providers for your solution!
Sitecore's documentation for Federated Authentication (doc.sitecore.net/.../configure_federated_authentication) mentions Azure AD.
Do you know if Sitecore 9 OOTB supports FedAuth + AD/LDAP server? If not, have you heard of any community implementation supporting that?
Hi Rodrigo, I do not know what level you mean 'out of the box', it does require code and configuration. But, yes, you can implement federated authentication with Azure AD.
Step-by-step for Azure AD detailed here by Badal Kotecha: sitecore.badalkotecha.com/.../federated-authentication-for-sitecore-9-integrating-with-azuread.html
Another example, for Auth0, is shown by MVP Bas Litjen here: blog.baslijten.com/.../
Do you know if there is any info regarding how to set this up? Thomas Eldblom mentioned you need to change fb app id so i updated it to my own fb app id. I'm still having some issues probably my setup is wrong on fb side.
Sitecore's documentation for fed auth doc.sitecore.net/.../using_federated_authentication_with_sitecore mentions ASP .NET identity. Does this mean that ASP .NET identity is used when you store federated users as persistent users in Sitecore (so you don't run into the scalability issues with ASP .NET membership)?
Thanks for your help!
Jeroen de Groot : Sorry for the delay, I had not seen your message. Persistent users are stored in the core database, just like always, using ASP.NET Membership under the hood. The Federated Authentication piece does use ASP.NET Identity, but it is wrapping around the underlying Membership tables in this implementation.
