We are trying to configure Oracle Access Manager 11g R2PS3 (OAM as “Service Provider” and the IDP is Pingfed. We are trying to achieve SSO for a OAM protected application (which works fine with form based auth), using this Federation services. We have done the following steps as per the document (

1) Go to service provider Management
2) Create an IDP partner, using meta data file provided by Ping fed (acting as an IdP)
3) Apply and click "Create authentication scheme and module"
4)This creates an authentication scheme and module, which should redirect the authn request to PingFed for a protected URL
5) I changed the authn scheme for my OAM protected url with the one created in Step (3)
6) Create an idp-attribute-profile to map to "uid" under above setup

Next, I sent the meta data file from configuration --> Federation setting ---> Export SAML 2.0 Meta data to IDP (Ping fed), so that they can complete the connection setup.

Now, when I hit the protected URL (SP-Initiated flow), it does not redirect to IdP for authentication.
