Shibboleth Service Provider Support

Last updated: June 3, 2024
Audience: IT Staff / Technical

This page collects support documentation for Shibboleth Service Providers (SPs) that use the UW Shibboleth Identity Provider (IdP). These documents are intended to help ease the learning curve for inexperienced SP operators and to provide references on UW-specific Shibboleth services and configurations. We don’t intend to cover every possible SP application integration scenario, nor do we expect our documentation to replace the comprehensive and authoritative documentation provided by the Shibboleth project.
