adfs/ls does not work while adfs/ls/idpinitiatedsignon works | There are no registered protocol handlers on path /adfs/ls/ to process the incoming request RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts

    I am trying to configure ADFS 3.0 with Sharepoint 2013 and facing an issue with ADFS 3.0 url

    When I try to access url https://<ADFS.domain.com>/adfs/ls - I face following error 


    Encountered error during federation passive request. 

    Additional Data 

    Protocol Name: 

    Relying Party: 

    Exception details: 
    Microsoft.IdentityServer.RequestFailedException: MSIS7065: There are no registered protocol handlers on path /adfs/ls/ to process the incoming request.
       at Microsoft.IdentityServer.Web.PassiveProtocolListener.OnGetContext(WrappedHttpListenerContext context)


    But When I try to access ADFS url - https://<ADFS.domain.com>/adfs/ls/idpinitiatedsignon 

    It works.. 

    Is it normal behavior or something wrong here.

    Please suggest.

  • /adfs/ls/ is the endpoint for all "passive" protocols. a Plain GET to /adfs/ls wil complain (correctly) that the plain GET is not a correct SAML or WS-Fed message. You should only send correct messages to that EndPoint........
