If you’re having trouble - don’t give up! :)

The items below may point you in the right direction.

  • Check the issues archive.
  • Check the SAML2 specification, starting with the core section, or the newer OASIS Saml Wiki.
  • Log your actual SAML2 conversation with SAML Chrome Panel or SAML Tracer for Firefox.
  • Connect an ILoggerAdapter to your SPOptions.Logger. If you are using the OWIN middleware this is done for you automatically and you can see the output in the OWIN/Katana logging.
  • Last but not least, download the Saml2 source and check out what’s really happening.
