Customizing the IFD Sign-in Pages for Dynamics CRM

By | October 19, 2015

Introduction:

An on-premise deployment of Dynamics CRM can only be accessed from within the intranet. If you would like to provide access to your on-premise Dynamics CRM to your team from outside the corporate network, you need to make this available externally over the internet.

To do this, you need to configure IFD (Internet Facing Deployment) for CRM. Configuring IFD involves using ADFS (Active Directory Federation Service) for managing the authentication. You need to configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM as a Relying Party in ADFS so that every login request is passed to ADFS for authentication and after successful authentication it is redirected to CRM.
