WHR: specify what Identity provider to use

As the habit, client’s used to applying whr parameter to specify what Identity provider to use like this

However, the whr usage is applied by the following rules:

uuid

  • Syntax: whr=uuid:connection_id

    Where:

    • whr=uuid: It is key word
    • connection_id: It contains the connection ID of the preferred connection.
  • Example: whr=uuid:6D37275A-CDD3-4D20-BB39-D595D9D540AA

EntityIdentifier

  • Syntax: whr=urn:EntityIdentifier

    Where:

    • whr=urn: It is key word
    • EntityIdentifier: It is Entity ID or Client ID of the connection.
    • For WS-Federation and SAML 2.0 authentication connection, the EntityIdentifier should be its Entity ID's value. Example: whr=urn:https://adfs.safewhere.local/adfs/services/trust
    • For Generic OIDC provider authentication connection, the EntityIdentifier should be Client ID's value. Example: whr=urn:client_73754-6bd8-40e0-bb67-d6c9430754c9
