NAME

       mdquery - Query Shibboleth metadata

SYNOPSIS

       mdquery -e entity [-a app] [-nostrict]

       mdquery -e entity -r role -p protocol [-a app]
           [-ns namespace] [-nostrict]

DESCRIPTION

       mdquery queries and displays Shibboleth SP metadata.  It is primarily a debugging tool to
       use in conjunction with advice from the Shibboleth mantaininers.  It can display either
       the metadata for an entity or the metadata for a particular role.

OPTIONS

       -a app
           Specifies the application ID for which to retrieve metadata.  If not given the default
           is "default".

       -e entity
           Specifies the entity ID for which to show metadata.  Normally this is the entity
           descriptor ID for an entity with which one is having a problem (such as the entity ID
           for the local SP).

       -nostrict
           Relax the strictness of checking (such as of expiration dates).

       -ns namespace
           When retrieving metadata for a particular role, specify the namespace.  If not given,
           the default is the SAML20MD namespace.

       -p protocol
           Specify a protocol when retrieving metadata for a particular role.  Normally one would
           use the -saml10, -saml11, or -saml2 options to specify the protocol name, but this
           option allows an arbitrary protocol to be specified.

       -saml10
           Specify a protocol of SAML 1.0.

       -saml11
           Specify a protocol of SAML 1.1.

       -saml2
           Specify a protocol of SAML 2.0.

       -r role
           Retrieve the metadata for a particular role.  Normally one would use the -idp, -aa,
           -pdp, or -sp options to specify the role name, but this option allows an arbitrary
           role to be specified.

       -idp
           Specify a role of IDPSSODescriptor.

       -aa Specify a role of AttributeAuthorityDescriptor.

       -pdp
           Specify a role of PDPDescriptor.

       -sp Specify a role of SPSSODescriptor.
