The name of the external organisation providing the outsourcing service.

"Eduserv OpenAthens"

The entityID of the identity provider which the external organisation proposes to use on behalf of the applicant.


If the domain name contained within the entityID belongs to the applicant rather than to the external organisation, an explicit statement by the applicant approving the use of the entityID by the external organisation.

"I want Eduserv OpenAthens to manage this entity on my behalf."


"OpenAthens Service Desk -"

The security domain(s) that the applicant grants authorisation to the external organisation to assert on its behalf. This normally corresponds to the applicant's registered DNS domain(s). This should be specified in lower case.


They do not ask for this, but it would be helpful to include your metadata address which for them will be where 'DOMAIN' is your OpenAthens domain (usually the same as your basic scope). If you are unsure, our service desk can help. This is slightly different from the metadata address you would use for a custom SAML application.
