My CRM 2011 tools are now Claim based authentication compatible

Everything is on the title Sourire

Please take time to rate my tools on codeplex if you like them and if you really like them, you can even make a donation (see Paypal button on your right)

Many thanks to Alex Fagundes and PowerObjects for providing me a Claim Based authentication organization on their servers. It helps me a lot for testing my tools.

I owe you one, Alex !

Hi. I used your CRM4 tools a lot. Great to see you are creating the same for 2011. I am struggling to get them to connect to our internal 2011 server when we have ADFS switched on. Do I need to do anything with the tools to make it happen? Include another dll in the folder?

Keep up the good work!

Hi LycraLout,

Currently, the Claim based authentication is supported only if the ADFS server used to authenticate the user is the one configured against the CRM server.

If not, then, you can't use my tools...

As I don't have such an environment, I can't add and test this feature to my tools

I've returned to your tools again after having no success connecting via the IFD option for on premise + ADFS. I can confirm that we only have one ADFS server so that must be the one configured against CRM.

I have, however, managed to connect your tools by not choosing to go via the connection wizard in the bottom left status bar. Instead, I configure the connection as I believe it should be, ignore the error message that is reported back, choose to Load Entities/Export Scripts from the application toolbar which invokes login box where I provide my password. I am then successfully connected.

This is a painless workaround for me as your tools make life easier anyhow, but I thought I should report that back to you.

Keep up the good work.

Good to know you have a work around...

Can you provide me the values that can't connect and the ones you specified directly in the connection settings file?
