Hey, we have build a cloud product but know little about allowing customers to use their own AD/ADFS users to authenticate with our service.

All I know is that we may need SAML with SCIM or ADFS for provisioning on our end. But is that it? Does anyone have any experience in this area who could help us out?

I believe that your application will just need to be made to accept SAML claims for authentication. It may help to know what your app is written in as I know there are SAML plugins for Java and I'm pretty sure its built in to .net

You would also need to provide a SAML endpoint, i.e. ADFS for external users to federate with - they would also require there own SAML infratsructure. You can host ADFS in Azure if that helps :-)

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.
