Information in this document applies to any platform.


It was possible to extract the SAML Response & SAML Assertion from a SAML Endpoint.
The response has an xml field called <saml:Assertion>

As per the Oracle documentation, it is required to gzip compress the value obtained from this field & base64 encode the gzip compressed output, before sending the value to MCS Token Exchange Endpoint.

Last steps mention:


 8. Extract the SAML assertion from the XML field.

 9. Gzip compress the extracted assertion.

10. Base64 encode the assertion.

How has this to be done? Use the entire value including the <saml:Assertion> tags or just the value contained in them?
