Overview

Identified by type="Assertion", this AttributeExtractor allows well-defined content from within a SAML Assertion to be extracted and passed to an application as an attribute. This supplements the support for extracting a fixed set of information from the assertion and populating well-defined variables/headers (e.g., the Shib-Identity-Provider header and so forth).

Reference
