Register IdP in UK federation

Register your IdP metadata after you have installed Shibboleth and before you start to configure it, because it needs to be registered in the UK federation for you to be able to test your configuration as described in the Testing IdP deployments section. You will need the idp-metadata.xml file from the metadata directory.

You should register it as "hidden" in the first instance, so it can't be seen in discovery services and used in error by users who aren't aware that it is not ready for production use. When you are ready to put it into production use, ask the UK federation Helpdesk to make it visible.

See the UK federation Shibboleth IdP registration page.
