Migrating an SP to the Global Research and Scholarship Category

This topic is for owners of existing Research & Scholarship (R&S) SPs.

R&S IdPs in the InCommon Federation are currently in the process of migrating to global R&S. More importantly, InCommon will soon begin importing the metadata of R&S IdPs from other federations. In anticipation of these events, existing R&S SP owners should begin thinking about their migration strategy to global R&S.

If your SP configuration depends on the R&S entity attribute in IdP metadata, please read on. Otherwise there is nothing further you need to do.

An SP configuration that depends on the R&S entity attribute in IdP metadata almost certainly recognizes the legacy R&S entity attribute value:

Such an SP may also want to recognize the R&S entity attribute value

since IdPs that support global R&S will necessarily carry the latter in their metadata. Indeed, R&S IdPs from other federations will carry the R&S tag exclusively.

Today an InCommon IdP that supports global R&S (i.e., releases attributes to ALL R&S SPs) has a multivalued R&S entity attribute in its metadata. Eventually this multivalued R&S entity attribute will be removed.
