Does Oracle Identity Federation 11gR1 / Oracle Access Manager Identity Federation 11gR2 support custom rules which can generate SAML in the format that can be read by the service provider?

In this requirement, an application requires Group & Role information details to be sent in a specific format in SAML, so that the application can interpret and display the details to users.

The OIF/OAM Identity Provider must generate an Assertion with attributes which are in particular format and that have to be generated at runtime or dynamically using some rules/plugins.

For example:

Rule 1 – Get LDAP Groups. This rule uses a script that retrieves all the groups the authenticated user is a member of.

Rule 2 – Transform the groups into IAM role ARNs. This rule uses the name of the group to create the principal/role pair, which has this format: ARN of SAML provider, ARN of role to assume. For arn:aws:iam::754665572868:saml-provider/OIF,arn:aws:iam::754665572868:role/AD-Prod-Users
