Relying party configuration

Yes, the "p:" was missing in the documentation although I see that it's now been added.

And I'm not used to the "p:" notation for adding properties to Spring beans so it didn't click that it was missing.  I guest my first clue should have been that "authenticationFlows" is not a valid bean tag attribute :-).

In any case, thanks, that solved my problem.

If it says that literally, there's a typo, it's p:authenticationFlows

The Spring docs on XML configuration are the primary resource you have to use to understand the native Spring wiring.

Wiring anything up is a matter of combining that knowledge with the Javadocs for the classes being wired.

You should also have logs describing the specific error in the file when it says the configuration won't load.
