Portal identity provider ADFS - How can we access logs?

Hi everyone,

We connect to our portal with ADFS. Behind we have AD et LDAP. Everything is working fine, but I was wondering how we can access SAML logs? I would like to know how can see logs on how token are used/consummed, how the claims are passed etc. I find the capacities for debugging a bit light.

We used SAML tracer but it's not enough for our IT department.

I also used the logs from portal, but even debug or verbose logs do not get me anything.

If anyone has an idea or advice it would be great.

Hi Melanie Fournier‌,

Unfortunately, we don't have any other tools or logging on our end that could capture the SAML assertion/response in any more detail. Your best bet is likely going to be SAML-tracer (the Firefox add-in, not to be confused with Chrome's SAML Message Decoder), or potentially Fiddler. 

If you want to see which claims are passed during authentication, the Chrome add-on I mentioned above provides this.
