This service uses the Thomson Reuters (Professional) UK Limited OnePass SP with entityID https://onepass.thomsonreuters.com/entity

WAYFless URLs:

For Westlaw UK, the format is:
https://signon.thomsonreuters.com/federation/UKF?entityID=entityID&returnto=https%3A%2F%2Fuk.westlaw.com/

The entityID parameter is the entityID within the federation of the institution's Identity Provider (IdP) (replace the word entityID after = with your IdPs actual entityID). Administrators may use the returnto parameter to have users directed to a particular page within a site. Both parameter values should be URL encoded.

The UK federation WAYFless URL generator (WUGEN) can be used, but you must select the SP above AND specify a Target URL on step 3.
