The most common scenario is to simply ask for a login while providing a resource to return the client to afterwards. Typically, this is the resource from which the redirect is generated.

  target=https%3A%2F%2Fsp.example.org%2Fresource.asp

Another common case is to specify the IdP to use. This is a simple way to implement user selection of an IdP from among a small set, for example clicking on a choice of logos. Not coincidentally, the SAMLDS handler is implemented by routing the result of the discovery process back to itself with the entityID parameter set.
