    Picketlink metadata support-Questions

    Adam Arun Newbie

      Hello Everyone,


      I've been exploring picketlink 2.1.6 and have been trying to get it to work with opensso on Jboss EAP 6. Around metadata support  I had the following questions


      1) I found a FileBasedMetadataConfigurationStore, and was wondering how I can use this in my configuration to store SP and IDP metadata?

      2) Using the picketlink.xml file, is there any way I can generate SP metadata. I'm contemplating writing some custom classes by extending the

             MetaDataBuilderDelegate classes , but is there an easier way?


      Lastly, the MetadataServlet is going to be really useful for me; instead of emailing around metadata.xml files whenever metadata changes (for upload), I can just use a URL. The servlet however, in its current form does have a few issues (refer https://issues.jboss.org/browse/PLFED-357), it also does not seem to be compatible with mulltiple entities. I've actually customized the servlet to workaround the defect and set the response mime type to application/xml.


      Anyway, any help with this will be much appreciated.

          I am also currently setting up an SP using PicketLink (and a simple IdP for use on development machines) and stumbled upon the same issue PLFED-357 which actually prevents me from using metadata which I would like to use if possible. Maybe it would be an option to get this bug fixed or find some workaround.


          Can you share your current progress using the MetaDataBuilderDelegate classes and/or your customized servlet?


          Kind regards
