       mellon_create_metadata - Populate initial SP metadata for mod_auth_mellon


       mellon_create_metadata ENTITY-ID ENDPOINT-URL


       The Apache module mod_auth_mellon provides a SAML 2.0 service provider (SP).  This service
       provider needs metadata to function. You can create the  initial  configuration  for  this
       with  mellon_create_metadata.  Three  files  will  be  created in the current directory. A
       public and private key pair, and a boilerplate metadata xml file with the public  key  and
       the URLs of this installation, that can be further edited at will.

       You  can  reference  these  files  in  the  configuration  options MellonSPPrivateKeyFile,
       MellonSPCertFile and MellonSPMetadataFile, respectively.


       Specify the desired entity ID of the SP. This needs to be globally unique and is therefore
       an  URL  or URN, probably with your own domain in it.  The endpoint URL is the full URL to
       your mellon installation. This normally ends with "/mellon" unless configured otherwise.
