Which Active directory attribute does ADFS 2.0 use to authenticate a user


  • Hi All,

    I am using ADFS 2.0 in my application.

    I want to know what field or fields in active directory is used by ADFS to authenticate  a user in active directory.

    I suppose  sAMAccountName or  userPrincipalName from activedirectory are used by ADFS.

    Please if anyone could put more light on this topic and tell me how I can restrict ADFS 2.0 to Always Authenticate by a specific active directory field like 'userPrincipalName' only and not by any other.

    Thanks in advance.
