Using the Pass Through or Filter an Incoming Claim rule template in Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0, you can pass through all incoming claims with a selected claim type. You can also filter the values of incoming claims with a selected claim type. For example, you can use this rule template to create a rule that will send all incoming group claims. You can also use this rule to send only user principal name (UPN) claims that end with @fabrikam.
