    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Trivial
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: 3.4.0
    • Component/s: Installer
    • Labels:

    • Environment:

      On-disk metadata for the IdP generated at install time for any new IdP install.

    • Operating System:
      Multiple

      Description

      The IdP metadata generated at install time and saved on-disk includes the multiple signing keys (one for front channel and one for back channel) which are otherwise undifferentiated in the metadata.  Many users look at this metadata when trying to determine what they need to add to the InCommon Federation Manager's various fields when submitting new IdP metadata, and are confused by the presence of multiple signing public keys in the IDPSSODescriptor.  A comment in the metadata to let them know which is which would help them.
