Adjust Identity Provider SAML Metadata File


This document explains how to adjust a SAML Metadata file of Identity Provider (IdP) so that it can be used in OUTSCAN or HIAB Identity Provider integration.


To integrate an Identity Provider (IdP) in OUTSCAN or HIAB, you have to upload the SAML Metadata file describing the IdP. This file must comply to the SAML standard.

Upload the SAML Metadata File

Open the SAML Metadata file retrieved from the Identity Provider (IdP) and check that:

  • The file contains the XML tag: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

    XML tag consideration

    If the XML tag is not present, just add the following tag <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> at the beginning of the file.

  • The EntityDescriptor section contains validUntil attribute

    validUntil attribute consideration

    If this attribute is not present, just add it using the following format: validUntil="YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS"

A valid SAML Metadata file should looks like the following

SAML Metadata file consideration

Uploading the file in its current state will result in an error.
