SAML 1 String NameIdentifier Attribute Encoder
The SAML 1 string NameIdentifier encoder creates SAML 1
<NameIdentifier> elements from resolved attributes. The content of the
<NameIdentifier> element is a string created by invoking the Object.toString() method on the first value of the resolved attribute. This encoder is only used for SAML 1 messages and will be ignored when the IdP is answering other protocol messages.
Define the Encoder
Attribute encoders are defined after any dependencies with an
<resolver:AttributeDefinition>. The SAML 1 string NameIdentifier encoders starts with the same
<resolver:AttributeEncoder> element as all other encoders and has a type of
<resolver:AttributeEncoder> may also have the following the attributes:
nameFormat- this becomes the
Formatattribute on the created SAML 1
<NameIdentifier>element; defaults to urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.0:nameid-format:unspecified
nameQualifier- this becomes the
NameQualifierattribute on the created SAML 1
<NameIdentifier>element; this attribute is optional
Deployers that wish to use the same attribute to support the creation of NameIdentifier of multiple name formats may define multiple SAML 1 NameIdentifier encoders with differing formats.
