How to extract information from SAML assertion ?

Question: Can you find out if it is possible to extract the identity (username) of the user from the NameID element in the SAML assertion? Currently, as a workaround, I had to create a separate attribute to include the identity of the user. It would be nice if the identity could be extracted from the NameID element so I don't have to lookup and pass the username twice in the assertion.

Answer: Of course, simply add a record for a custom user property at the bottom of the configuration screen - simply put the name of the element and the name of the customer user property (no setup required on the Idealink side) and you can then use the username in the business rules or as a custom user property.
