Well, an unsolicited login is a process of obtaining a response for the Browser SSO profile, and it follows the proprietary rules we created for doing that by sending the parameters required in the query string. It's meant to produce a POST binding response to a browser for use with that type of SP and it has no applicability to any other use case (and there is no other "trick" to getting the same result, that's it).

We do not provide any facility for stand-alone assertion requests, as those would depend on profiles that don't really exist or at least haven't been adopted to any significant degree.

I know nothing about AWS, so I'm answering your questions in the dark here, but the profiles we support are quite specific and documented.
