Has anyone found a way or a MP to monitor ADFS logins via SCOM?
I want to make sure that users can correctly authenticate via ADFS.
The ADFS MP just checks that the service itself is up. And I can check that the login page looks ok. But what about doing a login?
ADFS does not use windows authentication so I cant use the built in methods of authentication for that site.
This might be completely wide of the mark, but we use ADFS to authenticate our logins to Office365/SharePoint. We had problems trying to use synthetic transactions, as it is out to a web application, using adfs.
In the end, we are looking at Office365mon, a 3rd party company. We can install probes on our on-premise servers which test the logins to office365 sharepoint. By extension, this also checks that ADFS is functional as, without it, the probes could not connect to the sharepoint sites.
Another way around this which you could try is to use System Centre Orchestrator to attempt the login and then get it to raise a SCOM alert on the failure. A runbook will just need to be created for this to work, and once created you can set to run on a set time frame.
This seems like it would suit your needs, and be the answer to your question. It would just require a bit of time to set-up.
I haven’t done this personally; however I do use SCOM and SCOR together for some self healing tasks albeit basic ones
I will be trying this URL-monitor out as well.
It seems to be able to handle form logins.
