Active Directory Federation Services integration with two-factor authentication is a licensed feature to add ADFS support to the Metasys Server. ADFS is a single sign-on solution developed by Microsoft®. Use ADFS to provide two-factor authentication for access to Metasys. ADFS helps prevent unauthorized access to Metasys, which, if not prevented, could result in data, financial, and reputational loss, system disruption, and other negative consequences.

Note: ADFS is only available in Metasys UI on non-MVE sites. It is not available for Metasys UI on MVE sites and is not available for JCT, Metasys SMP, or SCT. The ADFS single sign-on and multi-factor authentication are configured on the customer's ADFS system.

Keep Me Signed In (KMSI) provides users with a login assurance that persists beyond the current session. KMSI provides a user with a 24-hour cookie that allows for logins to persist across browser sessions for up to one day.
