That's the POST binding endpoint.

I assume it only supports POST, or at the very least that was what it was configured to use.

If it's using the Redirect binding.

If you have a broken SP that is limited in the bindings it supports, and/or lacks the intelligence to simply load metadata for the IdP and pick the endpoint it needs to use, you're the one picking up the slack.

If you think that sucks, I agree, that's why my SP doesn't work like that.
