  • Importing SAML2 Service Provider metadata fails with:

    Error:  The XML is malformed.
    The element type "X509Certificate" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</X509Certificate>". 


  • This issue has been addressed to engineering

  • As a workaround place the metadata xml file on a web server and use the Metadata URL import instead of running the Text import (posting the metadata by  the browser client)


The metadata import fails on parsing the included certificate
