    Metadata with RoleDescriptor?

    Ad van Ommen Newbie

      Configuring a Service Provider with a metadata xml provided by the external IdP, I got an error upon deployment stating

      Parser: Unknown Start Element: RoleDescriptor

      Using PicketLink 2.1.8.FINAL.


      The error message is pointing exacty to the element RoleDescriptor in the sp-metadata.xml

      ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


      <EntityDescriptor ID="_24fd2e07-4435-4d32-8d8e-df8eb41458c6"

        entityID="urn:federation:deg_fedsvc-stage_pwc_com" xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:metadata">


      <ds:Signature xmlns:ds="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#">





      Signature is processed sucessfully.


      Looking at the code parsing the EntityDescriptor, I see that a limitive list of elements are accepted as childs.

      RoleDescriptor in not one of them, though it seems part of the SAML Metadata specification?


      Maybe anyone please explain this to me?
