Possible attribute problems when login

Forget my last e-mail, I looked for AttrChecker on my shibbolet2.xml file 
(Service Provider config file) and I discovered that there was a 
prerequisite for logins:

<!-- Checks for required attribute(s) before login completes. -->
<Handler type="AttributeChecker" Location="/AttrChecker" 
template="attrChecker.html" attributes="eppn" flushSession="true"/>

Scott was right, I was not releasing "eppn" and that's why the session 
always have failed. If someone is interested, I've solved it by removing 
those lines and the "sessionHook" on top 

Also, Scott, why is this needed? Do I need to always use it or it's just for 
beign sure that some attributes are correctly received?

Again, thank you a lot, I've been with this for 3 days and you guys solved 
it in a couple of minutes (really, thank you Peter and Scott).

Kind Regards,

That¹s a result of substantial "extra" configuration on your part. That's
the example template for failing a check for required attributes, which
means you had to have added the sessionHook feature and the AttrChecker
handler and told it to look for some set of attributes.

If you did all that, and you're not releasing those attributes from the
IdP, then that's the result.
