I have a Skype for business environment which uses ADFS for authentication. This works fine for the PC clients.
My question now is does polycom vvx phones support this kind of authentication?
Hello @Frank Verharen,
welcome to the Polycom Community.
Since UC Software 5.5.1 or later it is supported as documented in the Skype for Business FAQ:

I Will test this in the lab next week, and I let you know the results.
We use ADFS to authenticate our VVX phones when paired with SfBO.
To avoid any AD lockout issues, please run UC 5.7.2 on your phones.
I have tried the option web sign in, but it looks to me this is only for Online users.
I need an option for onprem. So I have a user resource model. Normally we have a trus betwen the two AD's. But in this case, an ADFS server in the user AD is responsible for authentication.
Have you considered Polycom Better Together over Ethernet (BToE)? My company uses ADFS and we sign into our phones with BToE.
