SAML SP not working with TestShib

Hello list,

I'm trying to get the SAML SP support in our helpdesk app to work with a
TestShib IdP.

Our app is known to work with some SAML IdP implementations, but I can't
work out the correct settings to use with TestShib.

The SP has settings for SSO URL, SLO URL, Issuer Metadata URL, X509 cert.

Based on looking at the info in testshib-providers.xml I have tried various
SSO URLs and they return different errors:

Error Message: Error decoding Shibboleth SSO request

Error Message: SAML 2 SSO profile is not configured for relying party

Error Message: Error decoding authentication request message

What would cause these errors? I have entered the X509 cert from the issuer

Is our SP implementation not providing some needed value?
