We use ADFS for SSO, can we use Azure conditional access policies for apps other than Office365?

We have apps like Salesforce, Concur etc.. that we may like to put some conditional access policies around (force MFA, deny access based on location etc) .  We use on prem ADFS 3.0 to authenticate with those apps as well as Office 365.  Are we able to only use the custom rules inside of ADFS to grant\deny access or could we somehow extend those apps to be able to use Azure conditional access like Office 365 is able to even though we authenticate via ADFS?

@brentmattsonYour non-O365 apps which utilize ADFS for authentication won't be able to use the Azure AD CA policies.  You'll need to set up access control policies within ADFS for them since the auth requests for those apps don't touch Azure AD.

I thought the same thing until I stumbled on this article.  Is this a typo or is there a way to configure CA with ADFS?
