Thanks, Scott, that is probably why I did not find how to release Name ID as attribute in wiki, I am having web meeting with them today, I will see if I can push back, the problem is the people from success factor are project managers who literally have no knowledge about saml and they always blame on our side

Yes, you can, but you shouldn't.

That's complete nonsense anyway.
