So https://hostname/idp/shibboleth will result in metadata?

OK, I can't find it, but according the shib document I printed out, to get idp metadata, I need to use https://hostname/idp/profile/Metadata/SAML, but I just realized if I entered my idp entity id in browser it will spit out our idp metadata, if my memory still working, I remember before I upgrade to 2.4, when I enter the entity id in browser I would get 404, could somebody explain it is because of the upgrade? Because my memory is wrong? Because my configuration is flawed?

The entityID is not a URL. The default value used by Shib during installation looks very similar to one just to ensure uniqueness of the ID.
