We've noticed that a NAM IDP metadata (as compared to say, a CA
Siteminder IDP metadata file) is incomplete

I think the oasis spec says that the IDP metadata has to include a list
of attributes that can be used

However, even though we have an attribute set defined, AND assigned to
a trusted SP, (and even included in the authentication response), the
NAM IDP metadata does not list any attributes at all

Whereas the metadata from a CA Siteminder IDP lists attributes (as per
the oasis stuff)

Is there some extra option that you have to enable on the NAM IDP to
get the metadata file to list those?

The opinions expressed are my own.
