Exporting a metadata .xml file from your IdP

Export a metadata .xml file from your identity provider (IdP). This file contains information about the IdP that enables Domino to accept SAML assertions from it.

About this task

This procedure describes how to export a metadata .xml from Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS). If you use Tivoli Federated Identity Manager (TFIM), see the TFIM product documentation for instructions.


  1. Use Chrome or Firefox to access the FederationMetadata.xml file on the ADFS server. For example, enter the following URL in your browser:
  2. Save the file to a location from where you can import it into IdP configuration documents.

What to do next

When you create IdP configuration documents, you use the Import XML button to import this metadata .xml file into the documents. Each time you do, the .xml file is deleted from your local system. Therefore, make a copy of the .xml file before you import it.
