24. Set your claim rule name. We suggest using something easily identifiable like "Contract Safe". You will then select "Active Directory" under "Attribute store:" Then under "Mapping of LDAP attributes to outgoing claim types" you'll select your AD attribute from the drop down (this field in AD needs to match their e-mail address that is in ContractSafe.) We'll then manually enter "Name ID" in the "Outgoing Claim Type" column. Then add another and in the LDAP attribute add E-Mail-Addresses and int the Outgoing claim select E-Mail Address. Then click Finish.


25. Click Apply.


26. Click Ok.



You should now be able to authenticate to ContractSafe via your ADFS server.
