ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) SSO (single sign-on) websites are relatively common. Monitoring is possible by creating a Web Check with form-based authentication. However, there is one additional and unique step that must be taken by a LogicMonitor Web Check when monitoring these types of websites: the Web Check must first “click” a sign-in button before credentials are passed to the web form and authenticated.
As discussed next, there are three general steps that must be taken in order to set up monitoring of an ADFS SSO website:
To get started, create the Web Check and its general parameters.
This step simulates clicking the website’s sign-in button and presents the authentication for for step 3.
Note: The Content-Type header will automatically be added with a header value of “application/x-www-form-urlencoded”.
The last step is to send the authentication credentials to the web form and successfully sign in. This step is almost identical to step 2, with the major exception being the creation of different key-value pairs and a check for a string in the response.
