  2. Make sure that you are in the CONFIGURATION view and select Advanced settings at the bottom.

  5. Select Save.

Mapping ACR to AMR

Here’s how the IntelliTrust IDP maps Authentication Context Class Reference (ACR) to Authentication Method Reference (AMR):

"urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:ac:classes:Password" -> "pwd"
"urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:ac:classes:TimeSyncToken" -> "swk"
"urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:ac:classes:MobileTwoFactorContract" -> "mfa"
"urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:ac:classes:SmartcardPKI" -> "sc"
"urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:ac:classes:unspecified" -> "pwd"

Enable the stateful authorization

This step is optional.

To have the user’s data cached in ACP and avoid re-authenticating within one use’s session, follow the instruction in Enable the stateful authZ in ACP.

User’s test


Test your new IDP as a user


Your provider is configured as a user-authentication method by your administrator.


  1. Go to https://localhost:8443/default/default/demo and select LOG IN TO DEMO APP.

  2. Select your configured IDP (if you have multiple ones) and, next, authenticate in IDP.


ACP displays the consent page that lists data scopes to be shared with the application. When you proceed to the application (ALLOW ACCESS), the PII data coming from IDP is delivered through the access token and the ID token generated by ACP.
