Problem:

While creating WSFED RP -> IP partnership in Legacy Partnership, after configuring Partnership entities, we're unable to select Local Resource Partner nor Remote IDP from the drop down menu. The entity is not visible.

Environment:

Policy Server and AdminUI 12.51, 12.52, 12.52SP1, 12.52SP2

Ā 

Cause:

WSFed RP->IP Partnerships don't support Entities with SAML Token Type 2.0. Those entities don't show in the drop down lists.

IP->RP supported SAML Token Types are: SAML2.0, SAML1.1 and SAML1.0 Legacy.
RP->IP supported SAML Token Types are: SAML1.1 and SAML1.0 Legacy.

Resolution:

For WSFed RP->IP Partnerships you need to create entities with SAML Token Type 1.1.
