We have a Sharepoint on Prem app, that is authenticated/authorized via ADFS

ADFS returns SAML tokens. I would like to know if SP Server supports JWT's

Hopefully without custom code.


I am afraid that it does not support JWT from ADFS in sharepoint 2016.

In SharePoint, it supports three types of claims providers:

  1. Windows Claims. It is windows token.

  2. Trusted Provider (SAML). It is SAML token.

  3. Form Based Authentication.

For more detailed information, refer to the article below.

  • Thank you Amy. Is it possible to call an external API that is secured via JWT. Our SP environment is On Prem 2016 secured with ADFS/SAML developed using SPFx – user3799810 Mar 26 '19 at 22:22
  • we are also having this issue, also we do not want to do local token conversion from SAML to JWT to call external API – Nitin Gaur Oct 29 '20 at 12:33
