I'm seeing a number of these errors popping up in my idp-process.log. After some Google searching, I saw some history related to missing attribute data in the database or LDAP backend.

2017-05-01 12:51:35,155 - ERROR [net.shibboleth.idp.saml.profile:-2] - Uncaught runtime exception SPSession key cannot be null or empty
2017-05-01 12:51:35,157 - WARN [org.opensaml.profile.action.impl.LogEvent:105] - A non-proceed event occurred while processing the request: RuntimeException

This specific error is not for an attribute, though, but for an "SPSession key". Is this a direct result of the session being deleted on the SP? According to the end-user, this error displayed within the browser like this was some sort of IDP issue.

Jefferson Login Service - Uncaught Exception
A software error was encountered that prevents normal operation: SPSession key cannot be null or empty

Please report this problem to your Help Desk or administrative staff. It has also been logged for an administrator to review.


Also, could this be related to differing session configurations on the IDP and SP?
