This topic describes how an administrator can test the connection between Single Sign‑On for VMware Tanzu Application Service and Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS). An administrator can test both service provider and identity provider connections.

You can test your identity provider integration by deploying the Pivotal Single Sign-On Service Sample Applications.
