RelayState truncated in SAML 2.0

  • 1.  RelayState truncated in SAML 2.0

    Posted 02-03-2017 08:17 AM

    Hi, 

    I am using CA identityMinder and SiteMInder in an infrastructure to protect a cloud application.

    I remarked that the relayState parameter sent to the service provider  is truncated.

    I saw in some old publications that to solve that I can try to URL-encode the relay state parameter https://www.ca.com/us/services-support/ca-support/ca-support-online/knowledge-base-articles.tec529287.html .

     

    I am a newbie on these CA products. I can't find out where I can change this configuration so the relaystate can be URL-encoded.

    Your help will be so valuable.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

     

    The data in the RelayState parameter must be URL-encoded when SP sends the SSO request to IDP. Please find the sample example below.

    Thanks,
