SAML attribute mapping needed
Status in Mahara:
With SAML now being a plugin within Mhara core we are able to connect
easier to external IdPs.
But one problem that remains is understanding payload packets returned.
Some IdP's return the packet of information with human readable keys like
'surname', 'mail' etc
but others return it with oid numbers (including custom oid numbers) and so
we need to be able to translate that to human readable text.
We can do this by setting the attribute mapping in our
auth/saml/config.php file in the 'authproc.idp' and 'authproc.sp'
arrays to use an in built attributemap found in
But the problem (and therefore the reason for this bug) comes when we
want to have a custom attributemap. We can't simply add it to
auth/saml/extlib/simplesamlphp/attributemap/ as that does not exist in
codebase (only created via make ssphp) so we need a way to get our
custom attribute mappings into play.
