Error when I try to add the SAML Identiti Provider for Okta

L1 Bithead

Upload SAML IdP Failed. No IDPSSODescriptor node found. Any ideas?  Here's the file I'm trying to import


<md:EntityDescriptor entityID="">
<md:IDPSSODescriptor WantAuthnRequestsSigned="false" protocolSupportEnumeration="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:protocol">
<md:KeyDescriptor use="signing">
<md:SingleSignOnService Binding="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-POST" Location=""/>
<md:SingleSignOnService Binding="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-Redirect" Location=""/>

you should be attempting to upload the xml file from Okta, IF.... the xml is correct.  If that XML is incorrect, then you will errors.

Not sure that this is a PANW caused issue, but a check to confirm that the XML is accurate.

Thanks for the reply. The xml file was not saved properly which is why it would not import. Once I right clicked and said save as xml it took the file.
