Start planning your Metadata source migration before the end of October 2017

At the end of 2017, we will be replacing the old AAF Federation Metadata source with a new source. This will be for the Test and Production AAF Federation environments. This will impact all Federation IdPs and SPs that rely on this metadata.

It is recommended that all IdPs and SP’s start planning their migration before the end of October 2017.

This new, metadata source is already available and ready for migration for all Federation IdPs and SPs in both the Test and Production environments.

Migration guides:

The AAF has developed a number of simple guides with migration steps that you need to follow. These guides provide the steps to ensure your IdP and SP continue to function after the old federation metadata is turned off.


Only IdPs and SPs that are currently consuming the old AAF federation metadata from https://ds.[test.]aaf.edu.au/distribution need to migrate.

All Rapid Connect Service are not impacted by this change – no change is required.

All IdPs that have upgraded to IdP v3.x using the AAF IdP Installer are not impacted by this change – you have already migrated.

If you have any issues or questions about the upgrade, please contact us at support@aaf.edu.au
