Metadata is available for both SAML 2 and the older SAML 1.1 standards. Where there is a choice, SAML 2 is the one to select.

You will need to know your OpenAthens domain name. This is usually the same as the scope registered against your domain organisaiton as seen on the organisation summary.

Metadata address:

SAML 2 https://login.openathens.net/saml/2/metadata-idp/DOMAIN/c/oafed
SAML 1.1 https://login.openathens.net/saml/1/metadata-idp/DOMAIN/c/oafed

E.g. if your OpenAthens domain is institution.ac.uk, your SAML 2 metadata address will be:

https://login.openathens.net/saml/2/metadata-idp/institution.ac.uk/c/oafed

If you want to view this in your browser you may need to add a ?browser paramater to the end of the link, e.g.  https://login.openathens.net/saml/2/metadata-idp/institution.ac.uk/c/oafed?browser.

This should be sufficient for most SAML targets, however some may instead want you to specify endpoints and certificates. If they do:

Endpoints / SSO address:
SAML 2https://login.openathens.net/saml/2/sso/DOMAIN/c/oafed
SAML 1.1https://login.openathens.net/saml/1/sso/DOMAIN/c/oafed
Certificate

This will be the x509 certificate in the metadata, topped and tailed as follows:
