Upgrading to IdPv3

If you haven't upgraded your IdP from v2 to v3, we recommend that you do so as soon as possible. By doing so you will remove the risk of running an unsupported version. If you would like to discuss your Shibboleth IdP v3 upgrade, contact AAF Support


It has been five months since ORCID released their new API v2.0 in preparation for API v1.2 being deprecated at the end of 2017. if you haven't already, it is recommended that your organisation upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible.

New AAF Metadata

At the end of April 2018 the old Federation Metadata will be turned off. This will impact all IdPs and SPs that rely on this Metadata. The new Metadata is signed with a new signing key that is 2048.
