When importing SAML metadata into ADFS, a warning message appears:
Some of the content in the federation metadata was skipped because it is not supported by AD FS.  Review the properties of the trust carefully before you save the trust to the AD FS configuration database.


  • Tableau Server 10.3.1


This warning message indicates a need to adjust the SSL settings in the Configure Tableau Server window. Here you can configure Tableau Server to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted communications on all external HTTP traffic.

Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (https) is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) with the Secure Socket Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol, which allows you to communicate securely with the server. A URL preceded by "https" indicates that Tableau Server is receiving or returning a secure URL.

Additional Information

The message does not prevent Tableau Server from working in most cases, but is a warning that Tableau Server needs to be reconfigured to function optimally.
