Stored ID Principal Connector

The stored ID principal connector maps a persistent ID generated by the stored ID data connector back in to the principal used to generate the ID.

Define the Connector

The connector is defined with the element <resolver:PrincipalConnector xsi:type="pc:StoredId" xmlns:pc="urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver:pc"> with the following required attribute:

  • id - assigns a unique, within the resolver, identifier
  • nameIDFormat - the name identifier format services by this principal connector - this is almost always urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent for this connector
  • storedIdDataConnectorRef - the ID of the stored ID data connector that generated the stored id
StoredId Principal Connector Example
<resolver:PrincipalConnector xsi:type="pc:StoredId" xmlns:pc="urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver:pc"
                             id="UNIQUE_ID"
                             nameIDFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent" 
                             storedIdDataConnectorRef="ID"/>
