Jamf Connect and ADFS… incorrect password

Fixing the “incorrect password” issue with Jamf Connect Login and ADFS.

Update 19th of March: It came to my attention that I'm missing the ROPG key in the config below. Again, I'm not able to fully test as I don't have an ADFS test environment.  I update the config below, adding the OIDCROPGID key, please let me know if it works for you.

Update 22nd: I just build out an entire ADFS farm. AD + ADFS + WAP servers, and federated it with Azure. I can use Jamf Connect Login to authenticate and create the account, but setting the <OIDCNewPassword> key to <false/> to validate it over ROPG and use it as local password still does NOT work for me. Adding the OIDCROPGID key below, does not change anything. I must be missing a key ingredient on ADFS to make it work. And while I managed to build out the ADFS farm, I'm not an ADFS expert, hence I'm wondering if this missing ingredient / setting might also make the passthrough of ROPG via Azure work... no idea, back to square one.

I was initially going to dedicate this post to deploying Jamf Connect Login with Okta. I wrote that Nomad Login+ Okta post a few months ago, so I assumed it would be a walk in the party to update my workflow now that Nomad Login+ moved under the Jamf Connect umbrella. Well, I still don’t know why but I ran into some roadblocks which I have to analyse first. Probably just due to my own doing, overlooking things or whatever it might be, but I’ll postpone writing about it till I have rock solid info to share. Stay tuned!

Hence, this post is going to be Azure related again. But because Jamf Connect is still fairly new to all of us, we can’t share too much information right! Jamf Connect truly is a beautiful tool to streamline the way end users authenticate to their Macs, apps and services, ensuring they only need 1 password to rule it all. Have a look at my previous post about how to do a basic deployment. Quite straight forward, no rocket science at all!

However it seems that some people ran into issues in environments with a mix of Azure and ADFS.
