I was setting up ADFS in Server 2019 today, and once I have all the basics setup, I like to got to, https://{server-fqdn}/adfs/ls/IdpInitiatedSignon to test, but this happened;

At first I though I’d broken something or forgotten to tick a tick box! But it seems this was turned off in Server 2016. You need to enable it on the ADFS server.

Execure the following command;

Set-AdfsProperties -EnableIdpInitiatedSignonpage $True

Enable IdpInitiatedSignon 

Then retry, and it should look a bit healthier

IdpInitiatedSignon Enable Server 2019
