Create a Rule to Permit All Users

Bill Mathers|Last Updated: 2/10/2017

Applies To: Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2

In Windows Server 2016, you can use an Access Control Policy to create a rule that will give all users access to a relying party. In Windows Server 2012 R2, using the Permit All Users rule template in Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), you can create an authorization rule that will give all users access to the relying party.

You can use additional authorization rules to further restrict access. Users who are permitted to access the relying party from the Federation Service may still be denied service by the relying party.

You can use the following procedures to create a claim rule with the AD FS Management snap-in.

Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, on the local computer is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups.
