This guide will show you how to send a SAML Response to Signicat using the SAML Library.



Normally, Signicat will send you a SAML Response when a user has logged in. However, some processes requires you to send a SAML Response to Signicat. This may happen if the user is already logged in and you need to send him to Signicat to perform some operation.

This guide assumes that you already know who the user is and want to send him to a specific URL at Signicat and that you know the URL.


Create a link, button or other widget that your user can click

This link should go to your own application. Don't link directly to Signicat if you need to send a SAML Response. The SAML Response will only be valid in 30 seconds, and your user may wait for more than that before he click on the link. Because of that, you need to send the user to your own application, create the SAML Response just-in-time, and redirect the user to Signicat with this SAML Response as a parameter.

Write the code that creates the SAML

Create a temporary redirect-page

A SAML Response must be POSTed to Signicat from the end users browser. To achieve that, you create a blank web page to the end user with a hidden form. The hidden form contains the SAML and is auto-posted using javascript.
