What does automatic metadata refresh mean?

Question

What does automatic metadata refresh mean?


Answer

When you set up our Single Sign-On app, you use SAML metadata to exchange information between the IdPs and our plugin. Metadata contains a lot of configuration options that the IdP has. Sometimes you need to import new certificates which have expiry days. Depending on the IdP they might be vailed for two, five or even ten years. Those certificates have to be renewed and automatic metadata refresh automates this process. If you tick that box then by default our plugin will try to load the metadata from the IdP once a day and apply any changes. This is only working if you set up via the metadata URL.
