AD FS Help Diagnostics Analyzer
Use the Diagnostics Analyzer to run a comprehensive health check on your AD FS server. After you run a PowerShell script and obtain the JSON file that the script provides, we will show you the resulting diagnosis of your server and reasons for any failures, as well as provide steps for resolution.
AD FS Diagnostics Analyzer helps run multiple checks across both AD FS and WAP servers. It helps reduce the manual effort in troubleshooting issues in your AD FS environment. What tests are run?
To run the Diagnostics Analyzer, you must install the AD FS Toolbox PowerShell module. Based on connectivity to the internet from your AD FS server, you can install the ADFSToolbox module directly from the PowerShell gallery. In case of no connectivity to the internet, you can clone the GitHub repository for manual installation.
PowerShell version 4.0 or greater is required for this module. You can run $PSVersionTable.PSVersion.Major in a PowerShell window to get the PowerShell version.
