ADFS Management Console missing from RSAT

As Windows Server 2016 Core no longer supports Minimal UI I setup a management server for remote management. Installed all the management tools, but not there is no MMC for ADFS.

        This is STILL missing, without even an update. And ADFS 2016 apparently doesn't work with powershell remoting either.

        Microsoft recommends and puts the default server 2016 install as no gui. In fact Server 2016 performs rather poorly when installed with the desktop experience. This isn't getting better with Server 2019. If you aren't going to provide a remote UI via RSAT then the documentation for ADFS needs a specific section on effective monitoring of ADFS and remote management via powershell and WinRM.

        Are there any plans to create RSAT tools for ADFS? This is kind of a maddening problem. We're trying to get away from unnecessary GUI environments eating resources on our VMs, but missing tools like this means we have to run a full desktop.
