Attribute Authority, Command Line Interface (AACLI)

Today, I have encountered one interesting tool in Shibboleth IdP which will check the resolver, filters and also the metadata so that you can know exactly what will happen in any given situation without starting the IdP. J

As a developer, I would say it’s a great tool as you don’t have to restart your IdP again and again after every changes.

The name of the tool is (Attribute Authority, Command Line Interface) ACCLI which is located in the IDP_HOME/bin directory and is called aacli.sh or aacli.bat.

How it works?

Make sure, you have set IDP_HOME to your system environment variable.

To check what all attribute it will return for userId SysAdmin and Service Provider EntityId “https://domain.waheedtechblog.com/shibboleth”)

aacli.bat --configDir=C:\idp\conf\ --principal=SysAdmin --requester=https://domain1.com/Shibboleth
