Identifying Your ADFS Deployment Goals

Updated: December 15, 2006

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

Correctly identifying your Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) deployment goals is essential for the success of your ADFS design project. Depending on the size of your organization and the level of involvement that you want to provide for the information technology (IT) staff in any partner organizations, form a project team that can clearly articulate real-world deployment issues in a vision statement. Make sure that the members of this team understand the direction in which your deployment project must move in order to reach your ADFS deployment goals.

When you write your vision statement, identify, clarify, and refine your deployment goals. Prioritize and, possibly, combine your deployment goals so that you can design and deploy ADFS by using an iterative approach. You can take advantage of existing, documented, and predefined ADFS deployment goals that are relevant to the ADFS designs and develop a working solution for your scenarios.

The following table lists the three main tasks for articulating, refining, and subsequently documenting your ADFS deployment goals.

Map one goal or a combination of any of the predefined ADFS deployment goals to an existing ADFS design.

Document your deployment goals and other important details for your ADFS design.
