Federating a SAML test app

This lab will take you through how to setup a test SAML application to be used in-conjunction with the rest of the labs. This will give you a platform to test against once authenticated to Workspace ONE Access.

This test SAML application is provided by https://sptest.iamshowcase.com/

We will do the IDP-Init flow only, if you wish to do the SP-Init flow also there is a section on that on this website.
