“Metadata contains trusted provider which is not an identity provider”

        Hello Teijas,

        To describe it simply:

        For the SAML 2.0 implementation you have three sides: (1) user agent, (2) identity provider (IDP) and (3) service provider (SP).

        In the scenario usually the user agent requires some resources from the SP and the IDP is used by the user agent to prove his identity in front of the SP.

        Because of the initial trust established between SP and IDP these two systems know each other.

        Based on a request and after the respective authentication of the used agent to the IDP, the IDP will issue a SAML assertion for this user agent and this SP.

        Based on the SAML assertion (and because the SP trusts the IDP) the SP will believe that the user agent is the one he pretends to be and will respond with the requested resources.

        Here you will be able to find more details: help.sap.com

        The metadata import actually is the step where you are trying to establish the trust between the IDP and the SP. The SAP NW AS JAVA (you mentioned) could be the SP for your implementation and the metadata file has to describe the IDP. The messages you get mention that there is something wrong with the content of your metadata file. This is why I was asking in my previous post what is your IDP system and the question is still valid.

        Best regards,

        Donka Dimitrova
