SAML SSO with Meraki

We've successfully integrated with Meraki a year ago.  We had to build the
metadata and non-standard attributes for it, but it wasn't much trouble.

You should be able to see what's happening if you turn up the logging to
DEBUG and see what your IDP is doing when it's building the response.  You
should be able to see if filter in the custom attributes into the response
to be sent back.  If they're being sent by the IDP, but not picked up by
Meraki, confirm you're using the attribute names from the docs that they're

Good luck
