Claims accounts appearing in user profiles service Audience Configuration

    Question

  • I've configured User profile service to synch with AD (Active Directory) and in "Add new synchronization connection" page I've chosen "Windows Authentication" as a "Authentication Provider Type" and when I create a "new audience" I find that the audience owner is claims account ( The Account looks something like the following:  i:0#.w|myDomain\TestUser; ) also the same thing happens when I configure the user Operand Value on the "Add Audience Rule" Step.

    The question is: How I turn those accounts into "Windows Accounts" ?

    Many thanks in advance for your help and effort.

  • Dear Gamil,

    this string you see is present also if Kerberos is enabled in your environment.  it is not always Claims based authentication.

    also, that is a Windows Account.

    do you have Claims enabled for your web application?

    Do you have Kerberos enabled in AD?

    Let us know...

  • Hi Erock, I hope you're fine.

    Thank you very much for your quick reply.

    Actually our central administration is configured for NTLM authentication provider but the AD is using the Kerberos authentication.
