ADFS Sensor / WID / SQL

Brass Contributor

I've installed sensors on our domain controllers and getting information as expected in the portal.  Now I am about to do our ADFS servers.


From the prerequisites quickstart: Install Microsoft Defender for Identity sensor quickstart | Microsoft Docs we are told that ADFS SQL should be configured to give connect, log in, read and select rights to the directory service account.  


My question: We don't use SQL server for ADFS we use WID - does this requirement still apply?

You need to give the same permissions to WID instead.
Contact Support for help on how exactly to do that.
I will indeed - thanks for your help.
