Start a login flow by choosing one of the following session initiators:
- Default DS flow with the UK federation CDS will test SAML 2.0 interaction with your IdP
- This session initiator will explicitly use the SAML2 Artifact profile if your IdP is configured to support it
The legacy SAML 1.1 initiators simulating SPs using the WAYF protocol are now disabled.
Detailed information about how to test your IdP is available elsewhere on this site. In short, focus on testing against the first one. The second is a less common use cases, but we recommend you test against that too.
If your IdP has been "hidden from discovery" you will have to choose the "search over all sites" from the CDS page.
Additional session initiators
The following additional session initiators are for UK federation internal use only. There is no guarantee that they will do anything useful at any given time.
