That's part of your SAML metadata. If you're talking about InCommon, that's part of the metadata you can register there.

> Also, I am confused on the format that I am supposed to declare it.  For example, it says that I should specify the location, does that mean I should declare the DiscoveryResponse element like this:

You don't declare it at all unless you're authoring SAML metadata directly, and in that case the syntax you can find from the underlying specification that defined it. [1]

I believe the SP will generate valid examples for this in the metadata it generates in any case.
