SubjectDerivedAttributeAttributeDefinition

Namespace: urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:resolver
Schema: http://shibboleth.net/schema/idp/shibboleth-attribute-resolver.xsd

Overview

The SubjectDerivedAttribute AttributeDefinition exposes attributes values derived from the Java Subject(s) produced by the authentication flow(s) used to authenticate the subject of the profile request.

In most cases, the SubjectDataConnector is a more useful option because it can produce multiple attributes at once, and the new exporting feature allows them to be used without additional configuration.

A configuration shortcut allows for the values from any IdPAttribute objects contained inside IdPAttributePrincipal objects to be pulled out, which is an effective way to tunnel attribute data from outside the IdP provided by the External authentication flow.

Reference

The source of the Subject(s) to evaluate is controlled with:

Name

Type

Default

Description

Name

Type

Default

Description

forCanonicalization

Boolean

false

If true, a Subject undergoing SubjectCanonicalization is used as input rather than the default of looking for authenticated Subjects

Exactly one of the following must be provided (but not both):

Name

Type

Description

Name

Type

Description

principalAttributeName

String

The name of an IdPAttribute found inside an IdPAttributePrincipal contained in one of the authenticated Subject(s)

attributeValuesFunctionRef

Bean ID

The name of a Spring Bean implementing Function<Principal,List<IdPAttributeValue>>, this function will be invoked for each Principal found within the authenticated Subject(s), instead of relying on default behavior

At least one dependency element is required.

Examples

The following locates an IdPAttribute named "Whatever" in an authenticated Subject and turns it into a new IdPAttribute named "SomethingElse".

1 2 <AttributeDefinition xsi:type="SubjectDerivedAttribute" id="SomethingElse" principalAttributeName="Whatever">

The following locates an IdPAttribute named "Whatever" in a Subject undergoing attribute-sourced C14N (such as a proxied SAML login) and turns it into a new IdPAttribute named "SomethingElse".

1 2 <AttributeDefinition xsi:type="SubjectDerivedAttribute" forCanonicalization="true" id="SomethingElse" principalAttributeName="Whatever">
