ADFS 4.0 SSO Setup


For Intellek to continue to support you and your LMS, we offer the ability for Users to login via a separate login page. External Contacts with prior access to the LMS will also need to use this separate login page.

Your LMS must have all user data imported prior to setting up ADFS AD SSO.

Intellek has already or will establish a test environment for testing your SSO connection prior to enabling SSO on your live LMS instance. Before proceeding with the following steps insure you have your test site and your live site URIs handy.

Users’ Login in the LMS (User_Identifier in the import) MUST match their ADFS Active Directory User name 

Please note the Intellek LMS uses OpenID Connect for Single sign on. SAML is not supported.
