Some development work would be needed to meet the following MUST Requirements

  • User registration incorporated into sign-in flow, so new user is not stranded at IdP.  NOTE: In case user is a first-time registrant at UnitedId, the second factor issuance/registration process will not be instantaneous. In such cases, an appropriate SAML error message is returned to the SP so that the user is not stranded between IdP and SP, but is returned to the SP where the error can be handled gracefully. also meets the following desired conditions:

  • No cost for users
