Azure AD federation

Automatic update of trusted token signing thumbprints from federation metadata endpoints

No longer do you have to go through the hassle of updating trusted issuers in Zervicepoint when your ADFS token signing certificates have expired. When a federation metadata endpoint is configured for a Zervicepoint store, Zervicepoint will periodically check for changes in token signing thumbprints published at the endpoint and then automatically update trusted issuers for the store. This is done every 24h when a user logs in. It is also possible to force a metadata check from within the administration web when updating a store.
