I worked on the SessionInitiator tag in shibboleth2.xml as well but nothing to do, here how it is now:

Neither is correct and you don't need or want a SessionInitiator at all.

Add ADFS to the protocol list in the SSO element and specify the IDP by adding an entityID property pointing to that system in your content rules with ShibRequestSetting.

That's been deprecated for years, it's acsIndex, and that shouldn't be used in the majority of cases.
