Enhancements and Feature Requests
Problem Ticket 2019-12-17-A
Support for special case of having an AD group that includes "Domain Users" as a member.
Note: this is an expensive operation since that group will be looked specifically and adds additional overhead. You need to enable this (new) parameter:
Feature Request 2019-07-22-A
Feature request for permissions if the GroupName is "*" then it will apply to all users and will not actually check against directory server; good for global rules.
<Domains Description="Everyone" DomainName="corporate" GroupName="*" Action="Allow"/>
Feature Request 2019-08-20-A
Force purge STS session cookie after redirect to Service Provider.
Organizations using UserContextMode 4 (and 5) are potentially impacted since the session cookie is used to store the source parameters while the user is authenticated, and as such should be tested before enabling in Production.
Feature Request 2020-01-20-B
More granular token time out per service.
Each SAMLConfigurationElements now allows the administrator to specify a token timeout value specifically per service provider. This is useful when the service provider needs a higher tolerance (e.g. due to network latency or other processing delays).
<SAMLConfigurationElement Service="ConnectingGTA" AssertingParty="sts.federation.uat.hospital.on.ca" EncryptSAML="false" <span style="color:#c0392b">TokenTimeSpan="2"</span>
Feature Request 2020-01-20-C
Update telus14, ehealthontario141 and ehealthontario15 profile logic for UAO assignment.
Problem Ticket 2019-09-19-A
Add event of INFO type in Logs to capture username and usercontext mode.
When Debug mode was turned off there was no adequate logging of the actual user context information in the STSLog file.
Feature Request 2019-09-19-A
Add Service item to audit file. For organizations using the same instance of STS for different Service Providers, an additional field has been included that indicates the service invoked. Note that this field has been added to the end of each line in order to not impact existing audit scripts/process that expect the same fields in the same order.
