Issue:
We are receiving the following error when trying to initiate a new SAML Application:

HTTP Status 400 -  Bad Request. This page should not be accessed directly
description The request sent by the client was syntactically incorrect.
Resolution:
The authnrequest was being sent to the Authentication URL (redirect.jsp) rather than the proper entry point.  The proper entry point for SAML 2 applications is the saml2sso URL (by default this is in /affwebservices/public).
