Custom SAML resources were developed for SSO to things like your VLE, G Suite or Adobe Creative Cloud.

You will almost always need to tell the other application about your own metadata or endpoints before it will work,  and you commonly have to add a custom release policy so that the target gets sent the attributes it is expecting - there are examples of this using G Suite or Adobe Creative Cloud.

It can take a few minutes for the resource to be live.
