"Disappearing" Attributes in IdP v3

Hi Scott,

There was definitely something fishy with my config, which is what I had been thinking, but I couldn't see what it was.

I just got it working. The problem was that there were multiple definitions for the same attribute associated with different connectors, so depending on which one was actually used, there may or may not have been a value.  I've cleaned it up and have multiple dependencies for the different connectors in the same attribute definition like so:

    <resolver:AttributeDefinition xsi:type="ad:Simple" id="displayName" sourceAttributeID="displayName">
        <resolver:Dependency ref="myAD11" />
        <resolver:Dependency ref="myAD12" />
        <resolver:Dependency ref="myAD21" />
        <resolver:Dependency ref="myAD22" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML1String" name="urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:displayName" encodeType="false" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML2String" name="urn:oid:2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.241" friendlyName="displayName" encodeType="false" />

After that, it was working like a charm!

Nothing jumps out. Usually that means the log there isn't sequential or there's a config being used that isn't actually what you posted.

If it's a test system running a single request/test with logging turned up, not really. Nothing short of a debugger.

Not once the result comes back into that resolution of the data connector and gets logged.

This isn't happening to anybody as far as I know, so there's something fishy about your log or your configuration.
