getAssertion returns an assertion based on the given parameter (given artifact, assertion ID, or query).
The SAMLClient class provides methods to execute either the Web Browser Artifact Profile or the Web Browser POST Profile from within an application as opposed to a web browser. Its methods include the following:
getAssertionByArtifact returns an assertion for a corresponding artifact.
