How to Generate Liferay SAML Environment's metadata.xml

Description

This article describes how to generate Liferay SAML metadata from a web browser. SAML metadata in an XML file is configuration data required to automatically negotiate agreements between system entities, comprising identifiers, binding support and endpoints, certificates, keys, cryptographic capabilities and security and privacy policies. (See SAML V2.0 Metadata Guide.)

If a Liferay Portal or Digital Enterprise 7.0 instance has SAML enabled as either the SP or IdP, then the following steps can be performed to generate the metadata XML file.

Resolution

Any of the articles in the Additional Information section will contain specific steps on how to configure and enable SAML on your platform.
1. After this has been completed, open a web browser and navigate to the following URL:
  • <{IP_ADDRESS} or {virtual host name}>/c/portal/saml/metadata
2. Save the file as an XML file from the browser (Click Save as...). Remember to use the same file name in the third party IdP or SP.
Below is a test example SAML metadata in XML format:
