SharePoint web application not using the good Trusted Identity Token Issuer

We have a SharePoint 2016 farm and 2 web applications. We have configured SSO through ADFS and created one SPTrustedIdentityTokenIssuer for one web app. Now, we want to have a second SPTrustedIdentityTokenIssuer for the second web app. We made the same configuration, changed the realm, added a new certificate, etc …

The issue is : – When we connect to a site on the second web app, it automatically sends the realm of the first identity token issuer, and we face this issue :

enter image description here

Now, if we change the default sign-in page on the web app, like this

enter image description here

We then are able to select between “Windows Authentication” and our second trusted identity token issuer. If we select it, the good realm is sent to ADFS and we can connect to the site.

Any idea about what’s going wrong ?

We could provide any additional information.

Ways of hiding the reviewer’s identity from the entity being reviewed


Let’s suppose I have a platform much like Yelp, but it’s only for ONE small town (80k inhabitants) and it only has listings of workers, not businesses.

In such a small town, most people are close in the social network. That means that it’s relatively easy for a person to stumble across another.

The problem

If Mary hires John for a job, but then Mary doesn’t like the end result of John’s work and leaves him a bad review on the platform, how to give Mary the option to hide her identity in order to avoid any awkward situation in the case she stumbles across John? Not only awkward situations but also harassment from John, which is a possibility, am I right?

Why just hiding her name doesn’t work:

If John had only one client (Mary) in a long period of time, and then shortly after the job he gets an anonymous bad review, he would do the Math in his head and know the author of the review must be Mary.

My solution

I thought of only releasing anonymous reviews by groups of 2 or more, so that John couldn’t know for sure who is the person behind the review.

The questions

Feel free to answer any one (or all) of these.

  • Have you faced a problem like this? How did you solve it?
  • Can you think of ways I can improve my solution?
  • Is this an old problem I’m not aware of? If so, is there any better solution?

Automated way to verify user identity

Whats the best way to get people to verify their identity for the purpose of preventing fake accounts on a social site.

For example, Zoosk does the following:

Members who choose to verify their photo will be prompted by the system to record and submit a video “selfie” that will capture the individual’s face from a variety of angles. If the moderators approve the member’s photo, he or she will be notified and a Photo Verified badge will be added to their profile.

However I’m interested to know if there’s a clever way to do this without human intervention (aside from using Amazon Turk service or the like, I mean fully automated)

What would happen to an adventurer personal identity when turning into a God?

I recently played RP with some friends, and one these friends is also one who’s playing in the D&D campaign I DM (Lost Mine Of Phandelver).

While they were explaining me their home-made RP system, we came to talk about Gods.
After a bit of talking, my friend whose is also playing D&D told me that he might someday try to achieve to become a God.
It could be a logical way for his character, an elven wizard, as his goal is to be the most powerful magic caster that ever existed (The entire background may be a bit long to write here not not that relevant for this question).

I was thinking that he might someday become the new God of magic in place of Mystra.
I already know that a legendary adventurer becoming a God already happened, but it bring to me a few questions about what would happen :

  1. Would the elven wizard keep his whole personality or would it be deeply affected by precedent God of magic memory and personality?
  2. Does the new God will be a God (male) or a Goddess as the previous one?
