Sampling the OpenSSO Samples and Yazoo

There are three types of samples included with OpenSSO.

  1. Server samples are included with the OpenSSO WAR. The samples can be accessed by appending /uri/samples to the OpenSSO server URL and entering it in the Location bar of a browser; by default, this would be http://hostname.domain:8080/opensso/samples. The samples include authentication, Liberty ID-FF, SAMLv2, and multi-federation protocol. I haven't checked them out yet.
  2. The Client SDK samples are located in the opensso-client-jdk15.war inside the opensso-client.zip. More information is in these entries:

  3. Command line interface samples are located in the sdk directory inside the unzipped opensso-client.zip. See OpenSSO Client SDK: Command-line Samples for more information.
  4. And since we are talking samples, let's listen to a moment in time: the song that has one of the most used samples in music history. In 1982, Vince Clarke says something funny and Alison Moyet laughs during the recording of the Yaz song Situation and they decide to keep it in the recording. I have heard that laugh sampled on a huge number of remixes and new songs over the last 25 years but there ain't nothing like hearing it as originally intended.

    I saw them at the Paramount Theater in Oakland, CA on July 7, 2008. What a show!

Turning Old Command Line Interfaces into New OpenSSO Command Line Interface

A number of command line interfaces originally developed for the products that have been integrated into OpenSSO have been EOL'ed. So here is some information on the new commands and options that can be used instead.

amadmin

Although the legacy command line interface amadmin is still bundled with OpenSSO, certain LIberty Alliance Project Identity-Federation Framework (Liberty ID-FF) related options are no longer supported because of a change in the metadata format. Use the following ssoadm commands to import and export metadata. Be sure to append --spec idff to the command.

amadmin Optionssoadm Command
-g|--importimport-entity
-o|--exportexport-entity

saml2meta

The command line interface saml2meta (originally developed for the Sun Java System SAMLv2 Plug-in for Federation Services) is not supported in OpenSSO. Use the corresponding ssoadm commands instead. Note that some of the new commands must have --spec saml2 appended.

saml2meta Optionssoadm Command
importimport-entity with --spec saml2 option
exportexport-entity with --spec saml2 option
templatecreate-metadata-templ with --spec saml2 option
deletedelete-entity with --spec saml2 option
listlist-entities with --spec saml2 option
cotcreatecreate-cot
cotdeletedelete-cot
cotaddadd-cot-member
cotremoveremove-cot-member
cotmemberlist-cot-members
cotlistlist-cots

saml2bulkfed

The command line interfaces saml2bulkfed (originally developed for the Sun Java System SAMLv2 Plug-in for Federation Services) is not supported in OpenSSO. Use the following ssoadm commands for SAMLv2 bulk federation. Be sure to append --spec saml2 to the command.
  • do-bulk-federation performs bulk federation.
  • import-bulk-fed-data imports the bulk federation data generated by the do-bulk-federation command.

ambulkfed

The command line interface ambulkfed (originally developed for Access Manager to bulk federate using the Liberty ID-FF protocol) is not supported in OpenSSO either. The ssoadm commands that take the place of the SAMLv2 bulk federation CLI (above) can also be used for Liberty ID-FF bulk federation by appending --spec idff to the command rather than --spec saml2.

And now some new music (on this side of the pond anyway) from Alison Moyet. The Turn was just released in North America and features the single, A Guy Like You.
