When trying to import the SAML metadata from OAM 11gR2 ( into ADFS 2.0 an error is reported on the ADFS side. ADFS gives the error "The required attribute xsi:type in the element RoleDescriptor is missing". The metadata appears to be missing xsi:type attribute in the RoleDescriptor element. According to the SAML metadata specification it looks like this is not a required attribute, however it does seem like many SAML implementations supply this additional attribute.
