SAML 2.0 Authentication Failed: User Identifier Not Found

 

Cause

Not passing a UID or NAME ID from ADFS claim rules

Resolution

In ADFS the Relying Party Trust needs to have a Claim Rule that Passes either a UID or a NAME ID value.  Workfront Test Connection will show this if successful. 

ADFS INFO: In the Relying Party Trust object > Claim Rule

LDAP Attribute (Left column) should have E-Mail Addresses (or any unique identifier).

Outgoing Claim Type (Right column) should be Name ID.

It doesn't have to have the LDAP Attribute E-Mail Addresses; any unique identifier that will identify the user can be used but it must be passed into Workfront as the NAME ID.
