    How is the SAML AuthnRequest issuer set when using the metadata configuration provider?

      I've been experimenting with the picketlink-federation-saml-sp-with-metadata quickstart and have noticed something unexpected about the SAML request sent by PicketLink (acting as a SP). Even though the entity ID is parsed from the SP metadata, the ID is never persisted in the internal data structures and isn't subsequently used when generating requests that are sent to the IdP. Looking at the relevant code, it looks like there's a check to see whether an explicit issuer has been configured, but there is no code anywhere that actually sets the issuer.

       

      Is this the expected behavior? I'm using v2.7.0.CR3 on WildFly 8.2.0.Final.

       

      Thanks!
