    ADFS SSO issues related to the e-mail from Salesforce with subject "ACTION REQUIRED: Retirement of Default Certificate affects SAML Single Sign On into Salesforce".


    1) Create a Self-Signed Certificate in Salesforce(if it is already created then you can use it).

    2) Go to Single Sign On Settings and Update the SAML config to select the new self-managed certificate. This is to be done in Request Signing Certificate Column, click on Edit and choose the Self Signed Certificate from the drop down menu.
    - In the Request Signing Certificate field, choose the name of the certificate that you want to use for signing SAML assertions. Ensure that you do not continue to use the Default Certificate option, which is the certificate.

    3) Upload the new certificate into your IdP.
    - Download the Self-Signed Certificate from Salesforce(Go to Certificate and Key Management>Open the Certificate and click on Download Certificate)
    - Now go to ADFS and replace the Certificate with the new Self-Signed Certificate which you have Downloaded from Salesforce.
