Azure ADFS Certificate Notification — April 18, 2018

Azure ADFS Certificate Notification

We’ve been using Azure for a few months now so it’s about time our certificates would expire right? Well according to the email notification we’ve just received a certificate needs updating or we’ll lose access!

In order to provide your organization with uninterrupted access to Office 365 and Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), you need to ensure your certificate for the domain(s) domain.tld is renewed and updated in Azure AD right away.
