ACS index value in IDP initiated URLs

When siteminder policy server functions as an IDP supporting multiple ACS URLs for a SP partnership, it currently accepts the multiple ACS URLs coming in from an authentication request message from the SP. Basically the flow has to be always SP initiated and it cannot be IDP initiated for a partnership supporting multiple ACS URL values.


For IDP initiated URL, siteminder always sends the SAML assertion to the very first configured ACS URL in the partnership, disregarding all the other ACS URLs in the configuration.


Would like to request for an enhancement where siteminder IDP can support ACS index value as a query parameter while constructing the IDP initiated URL, so that siteminder can send the SAML assertion to the respective configured ACS URL at the SP domain.
