Create an organization group or custom claim
Updated: September 13, 2007
Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2
In Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), an organization group claim is used by the Federation Service to represent a user's membership in a group or role. An organization custom claim is used by the Federation Service to provide custom information, such as an employee identification number, about a user. Group claims and custom claims are created in the same way. You can use the following procedure to create an organization group claim or a custom claim.
Administrators in the account Federation Service create organization group claims and custom claims to represent account users. Administrators in the resource Federation Service create corresponding organization group claims and custom claims to represent groups and users that can be recognized as resource users in the resource Federation Service. Because outgoing claims in the account Federation Service map to incoming claims in the resource Federation Service, the resource Federation Service is able to accept the credentials that are provided by the account Federation Service.
To complete this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer.
