How to add secondry user store domain name to SAML response from shibboleth side. WSO2 Identity server SSO with secondary user store.

When we configure shibboleth as identity provider in WSO2 Identity server as described in this article(http://xacmlinfo.org/2014/12/04/federatation-shibboleth/) deployment would be something like below.


In this case shibboleth will act as identity provider for WSO2 IS and will provide SAML assertion to WSO2 IS. But actual permission check will happen from IS side and we may need complete user name for that. If we configured user store as secondary user store then user store domain should be part of name. But shibboleth do not know about secondary user store. So in IS side you will username instead of DomainName/UserName. Then it will be an issue if we try to validate permissions per user.

To over come this we can configure shibboleth to send domain aware user name from their end. Let say domain name is LDAP-Domain then we can set it from shibboleth side with following configuration. Then it will send user name like this LDAP-Domain/userName.


    <!-- This is the NameID value we send to the WS02 Identity Server. -->
    <resolver:AttributeDefinition xsi:type="ad:Script" id="eduPersonPrincipalNameWSO2">
        <resolver:Dependency ref="eduPersonPrincipalName" />

        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML2StringNameID" nameFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent" />


                eduPersonPrincipalNameWSO2 = new BasicAttribute("eduPersonPrincipalNameWSO2");
                eduPersonPrincipalNameWSO2.getValues().add("LDAP-Domain/" + eduPersonPrincipalName.getValues().get(0));
