Just started working with SAML yesterday and have run into all sorts of issues, most of which I worked out. However, one that I still have not is how to turn off discovery so Spring auto redirects to the IdP (I only have one and have also set it to default) when any protected resource is accessed. I see in Springs docs that you can easily turn off discovery, however the docs seem to be lacking in examples and/or details, so I am not totally sure how to do it.

Thus far, I have tried setting the idpSelectionPath to empty, as well as using includeDiscoveryExtension and idpDiscoveryEnabled set to false. Using the direct URL (context/saml/login?idp=IDP) does work, but is not an option as my requirement is for any protected URL to auto redirect to the IdP if the user is not signed in.

The below is a working version of my securityContext.xml file, as some of the changes I made (such as removing all the discovery settings) caused a browser error of an endless loop to occur. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!

Installing the idpDiscoveryEnabled property to false in the MetadataGeneratorFilter ran for me. Something like:

<bean id="metadataGeneratorFilter" class="org.springframework.security.saml.metadata.MetadataGeneratorFilter">

        <constructor-arg>

            <bean class="org.springframework.security.saml.metadata.MetadataGenerator">

                <property name="extendedMetadata">

                    <bean class="org.springframework.security.saml.metadata.ExtendedMetadata">

                        <property name="idpDiscoveryEnabled" value="false"/>

                    </bean>

                </property>

            </bean>

        </constructor-arg>

    </bean>
