# Summary

This module integrates Drupal with SimpleSAMLphp, the most robust and complete implementation of SAML in PHP. It makes it possible for Drupal to communicate with SAML or Shibboleth identity providers (IdP) for authenticating users. The resulting Drupal site can effectively act as a SAML or Shibboleth service provider (SP).

The 7.x-3.x branch of SimpleSAMLphp Auth module is being ported to Drupal 8.

There are numerous situation where accessing /saml_login/ will result in a redirect to a Drupal//user/login. Wouldn't it be nice to actually get some kind of exception thrown ?

I suggest you check the module issue queue for possible discussions on this topic, or create a new issue if there isn't one yet:

I kept getting this error when trying to login /saml_login/ to the site.

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.
Recoverable fatal error: Object of class Drupal\Core\Link could not be converted to string in Drupal\Component\Utility\Xss::filter() (line 67 of core/lib/Drupal/Component/Utility/Xss.php).

I wonder if this a simplesamlphp_auth module, Drupal, or SimpSamlPhp issue. I ran the test in www.mysite.com/simplsaml and it worked fine.

Strangly enough the rc2 is dated later than the dev version. What is going on?
