Customize ADFS Sign In Pages–To Make It More Interesting.


Hmm….Default Sign In-Page is a bit dull. Don’t you think so?


Too bad, we cannot make any changes like Azure Active Directory Page Branding from Azure Management Portal. During R & D, we found that the only way to make our Sign In Page more interesting on ADFS 3.0 is modify from Powershell. Let start each component that we can change

[ Configuration]

1. Change Company Name

Set-AdfsGlobalWebContent –CompanyName "MS4U Corporation"


2. Change Company Logo

Recommend size is 260 X 35 @96 dpi. Size less than 10 KB. Either you want text company name or use company logo.

Set-AdfsWebTheme -TargetName default -Logo @{path="c:\Logo\ms4ulogo.png"}


3. Change Illustration on the left

Recommend 1420 X 1080 pixel @96 dpi. Size less than 200KB

Set-AdfsWebTheme -TargetName default -Illustration @{path="c:\Logo\Green.jpg"}


4. Add Sign in Page Description

Set-AdfsGlobalWebContent -SignInPageDescriptionText "<p>Welcome to MS4U Corporation Secure Page</p>"


5. Add Help Desk Link

Set-AdfsGlobalWebContent -HelpDeskLink -HelpDeskLinkText Help

We are adding Help Link that point to our blog URL:-


6. Add Home Link
