Sitefinity STS Solution Upgrade

  • Sitefinity STS Solution Upgrade
  • Currently I am running on Sitefinity 5.4 and looking to upgrade to 8.0.  We are using the STS application for authentication and was curious to know if anything needed upgraded on this solution to upgrade to version 8.0?
  • Hi,

    Yes it is needed to upgrade, there have been updates. Download the SitefinityStsWebApp for version 8.0 from your account and use the web.config with the configs for STS that are currently used in the site.

  • Thank you for the information.  I have one follow up question with the STS application.  For the authentication process we use the STS solution to "talk" to ACS (Access Control Service).  Then, our ACS service "talks" to ADFS (Active Directory Federated Services).  ACS is currently in the process of being faded out and only using ADFS for authentication.  Does Sitefinity allow the STS application to "talk" directly to ADFS for authentication?
  • So we are looking to get rid of ACS and only use ADFS for authentication.  Does Sitefinity allow this?  Based on what I have read throughout documentation, I believe it can.
  • Hello,

    Directly no, ADFS gets registered in Sitefinity and uses Sitefinity Ldap membership provider to process the ADFS data which is then managed by the STS for authentication.

  • Hi,

    For connection to ADFS activate and configure the LDAP membership provider to pull users from ADFS, here is the documentation on this.
    Having LDAP provider configured the STS web app can be used to provide single sign on trough the LDAP provider.

  • What updates have been made in the STS solution in Sitefinity 8.1?  What files/assemblies are needed to be upgraded?
  • Hi,

    For the STS get the SitefinitySTSWebApp.zip from the files for the related Sitefinity version in your account.
    The app have been updated to comply with the claims authentication updates in Sitefinity for the latest version. Copy over the updates/configurations you have in the current SitefinitySTSWebApp that you use to the latest one and this way no additional configuration will be needed for the update to the latest SitefinitySTSWebApp .
