Bug description

viewing a SAML IdP entity in AM console may lead to an error

How to reproduce the issue

  1. Configure AM
  2. Import IdP meta data with ssoadm that does not have attribute 'WantAuthnRequestsSigned' set for IDPSSODescriptor
  3. Access the IdP entity in console
Expected behaviour
IdP entity should be manageable via console
Current behaviour
Error message "An error occurred while processing this request. Contact your administrator." is shown.
excerpt from AM debug logs

Work around



attribute for the IDPSSODescriptor element before importing.

Code analysis

    protected Set returnEmptySetIfValueIsNull(boolean b) {
        Set set = new HashSet(2);
        return set;

This leads to

java.lang.NullPointerException: cannot unbox null value

if called with null

I suspect the fix for OPENAM-14213 would solve this as  it fixes the IDPSSODescriptorType as well as the SPSSODescriptorType
