NAME

mdquery - Query Shibboleth metadata  

SYNOPSIS

mdquery -e entity [-a app] [-nostrict]

mdquery -e entity -r role -p protocol [-a app]
    [-ns namespace] [-nostrict]  

DESCRIPTION

mdquery queries and displays Shibboleth SP metadata. It is primarily a debugging tool to use in conjunction with advice from the Shibboleth mantaininers. It can display either the metadata for an entity or the metadata for a particular role.  

OPTIONS

-a app
Specifies the application ID for which to retrieve metadata. If not given the default is "default".
-e entity
Specifies the entity ID for which to show metadata. Normally this is the entity descriptor ID for an entity with which one is having a problem (such as the entity ID for the local SP).
-nostrict
Relax the strictness of checking (such as of expiration dates).
-ns namespace
When retrieving metadata for a particular role, specify the namespace. If not given, the default is the SAML20MD namespace.
-p protocol
Specify a protocol when retrieving metadata for a particular role. Normally one would use the -saml10, -saml11, or -saml2 options to specify the protocol name, but this option allows an arbitrary protocol to be specified.
-saml10
Specify a protocol of SAML 1.0.
-saml11
Specify a protocol of SAML 1.1.
-saml2
Specify a protocol of SAML 2.0.
-r role
Retrieve the metadata for a particular role. Normally one would use the -idp, -aa, -pdp, or -sp options to specify the role name, but this option allows an arbitrary role to be specified.
-idp
Specify a role of IDPSSODescriptor.
-aa
Specify a role of AttributeAuthorityDescriptor.
-pdp
Specify a role of PDPDescriptor.
-sp
