    Hey guys 

    So, when you create a partnership ( SiteMinder/Fed as IdP )  & export the metadata to provide to a Service Provider , it seems to be missing the RoleDescriptor element as per the Oasis SAML 2.0 Standards ( http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/v2.0/saml-metadata-2.0-os.pdf ) . 

    Does anyone know if CA supports RoleDescriptor telements in their metadata ? 

    btw, I'm talking about CA SiteMinder R12.5 with baked in Federation.  But I suppose this would apply to any CA product that supported SAML federation.

    Shashi, RoleDescriptor is an optional element in the OASIS SAML 2.0 standard. I believe that CA doesn't yet support it.

    best wishes.
