Deployment Example 2: Federation Using SAML v2

7.3 Loading the Service Provider SAMLv2 Metadata

When you load the SAMLv2 metadata into Directory Server, the Service Provider entity configuration is created. The entity configuration enables the SAMLv2 plug-in to recognize all SAMLv2 protocol URLs. The SAMLv2 metadata is also used for exchanging data with remote parties.

7.3.1 To Load the Customized Service Provider Metadata

Load the customized saml2-sp-template.xml and saml2-sp-extended-template.xml configuration files using the following command:

# /opt/SUNWam/saml2/bin/saml2meta -i /var/opt/SUNWam/fm/war_staging import 
-u amadmin -w 11111111 -m /etc/opt/SUNWam/config/saml2-sp-template.xml 
-x /etc/opt/SUNWam/config/saml2-sp-extended-template.xml

Note –

If the files do not load successfully, be sure that all entityID attributes in the files are entered using lowercase letters. The entityID attribute is not recognized if mixed case letters are used.
