ADFS : Metadata XML won’t display in IE


A number of people have commented on this problem with ADFS v2.0. It seems to be confined to Internet Explorer (IE).

Basically, the problem is that you want to display a site’s metadata so you browse to the URL (the https://xxxx//FederationMetadata/2007-06/FederationMetadata.xml one) and see … zip / nada / nothing / blank. WTF!

Two “solutions” that may help:

  • Use Firefox
  • Toggle the IE compatibility mode.
