BizTalk 2013 Installation and Configuration – Install Windows Identity Foundation (Part 3)

In the previous step “Enable Internet Information Services” I mentioned that we should install the Windows Identity Foundation 3.5 feature, why?

If we plan to use/configure SharePoint Services adapter or SharePoint Online when used with SharePoint Services Client-Side Object Model (CSOM), then Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) feature is required.

WIF is required if you are planning to use:

  • SharePoint Services Adapter with CSOM
  • SharePoint Online with CSOM

WIF is not required if you are planning to use:

  • SharePoint Services Adapter Web Service (deprecated)
  • No plan to use SharePoint

Windows Identity Foundation is included with the operating system (Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012) as a Feature in Turn Windows features on or off. (if you plan to use Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 the download is available here Windows Identity Foundation):

If you didn’t previously install WIF then you should follow these steps:

  • Open “Server Manager”.
  • Under the “Manage” menu, select “Add Roles and Features” (or press “Add roles and features” under the Dashboard panel)
  • On the Before You Begin screen, click “Next”
  • On the Installation Type screen, select “Role-based or Feature-based Installation” and click “Next”
  • On the Server Selection screen, select the appropriate server, leave the default options and click “Next”
  • On the Server Roles screen, click “Next”
  • On the Features screen, select “Windows Identity Foundation 3.5” and click “Next”
