LocalDynamicMetadataProvider fetches metadata from a local source dynamically as needed. The deployer is responsible for populating the local source with data, which may be done while the metadata provider is running. New metadata will be seen automatically the first time it is requested.
Use this provider with local metadata
LocalDynamicMetadataProvider is used with local metadata. See the MetadataManagementBestPractices topic for more information.
A common use case will be to use a filesystem directory as the local source. A convenience attribute
sourceDirectory is supplied to facilitate this configuration. In this case, the deployer adds XML files each containing a single
<md:EntityDescriptor> element to the
By default, when using a
sourceDirectory, the file naming convention will be the lower case hex-encoded SHA-1 digest of the
entityID, suffixed with ".xml". For example, the metadata for the entity with
entityID "urn:test:foobar" will be resolved from the
sourceDirectory with filename "d278c9975472a6b4827b1a8723192b4e99aa969c.xml".
Note that with the default
entityID digest mechanism, the digested value should not include any leading or trailing whitespace (in particular, no trailing new line character):
