Outside of a technical demo showcase I don't think any user interface
should show SAML protocol messages but YMMV.

Sessions/@exportLocation (and possibly Session/@exportACL) is what you
want, then.
The documentation covers the protocol to use to get the assertion(s)
from the SP and you'll find example code (in Python) from me in the
list archives demonstrating use of the protocol.
