SP Metadata Provider Filter Examples

The following examples are simply that, examples. They do not illustrate all possible configuration properties or features.

        <!-- Example of remotely supplied batch of signed metadata. -->
        <MetadataProvider type="XML" url=""
                 backingFilePath="incommon-metadata.xml" maxRefreshDelay="3600">
               <!-- Require validUntil of no more than 14 days -->
               <MetadataFilter type="RequireValidUntil" maxValidityInterval="1209600"/>
               <!-- Verify the signature on the metadata file -->
               <MetadataFilter type="Signature" certificate="inc-md-cert.pem"/>
               <!-- Consume all IdP metadata in the aggregate -->
