ADFS : Copy claims rules over

Don't know how many times I've done this.

Deploy to Dev., get everything working, deploy to QAS, support QAS acceptance testing, deploy to Prod., smoke test.

When you have a lot of claims rules to copy over, I found a neat way to do it.

e.g. for a CP.

(Get-AdfsClaimsProviderTrust -Name "My CP").AcceptanceTransformRules | Out-File “C:\path\CPClaimsRules.txt”

And then import the rules to the new CP.

Set-AdfsClaimsProviderTrust -TargetName "My CP" -AcceptanceTransformRulesFile “C:\path\CPClaimsRules.txt” .

I've found that this also avoids the issue where you keep a copy of the rules in e.g. Word and then when you try and paste them into the ADFS wizard, you get all kinds of format errors.

Enjoy!
