Well, not exactly. I was just asked to federate with them yesterday by a department, and they're an InCommon member, so from a release standpoint, I had no work to do.

But it didn't work (yet), they're SimpleSAML deployment is claiming that the attributes they asked for weren't present, which I know is not the case, so there's something wrong with their deployment at present. They appeared to want mail, and first/last name, FWIW. From that, I assumed without evidence that they intend to rely on mail as an identifier, which wouldn't exactly be unusual.

I think what you're really asking is, what attributes do they require? Which in fairness I don't know. I only know what it told my customer it required but didn't receive.

That's news to me, but if true, they have a problem since I have no intention of doing that, and I'll have to tell my customer that if it comes up. Do you have a reference for that requirement? A web page link?

It's entirely incorrect.
