So that Wayfinder can be freely used by anyone whether or not they use OpenAthens, it has been designed to reference the metadata of federations that you are in where your entity has a relevant <idpdisc:DiscoveryResponse> tag. 

All SP software

Your entity will need to be published in at least one federation and include a discovery response binding. See: Enabling OpenAthens Wayfinder

OpenAthens SP and Keystone

You will also need to select the relevant federation(s) in the identity provider section of your connection. If you have added any additional identity providers they will be included.

The OpenAthens federation will not be enabled until your application is published

Hidden entities

There are various reasons why an IdP entity would be hidden from Wayfinder using the hide-from-discovery entity category:

In all those cases there are times when you (but not everyone) would need to see them. For those situations we have a javascript boomarklet you can use:

  1. Drag the bookmarklet to your shortcuts bar


    <div style="width:200px;border:1px solid;text-align: center; background-color:#e0e0eb">
    <p><a href="javascript: (function(){var jsCode = document.createElement('script'); jsCode.setAttribute('src', '/resources/wayfinder-debug.js'); document.body.appendChild(jsCode);}());">Wayfinder Debug</a></p></div>
  2. Go to a page on the wayfinder domain and click the bookmarklet. wayfinder.openathens.net isn't pretty but will do for this.
  3. Hidden orgs will now be visible in Wayfinder whilst you run your tests
