Skolfederation Trial is a free test environment open for both members of Skolfederation and non-members. In Skolfederation Trial user organizations and service providers can test their solutions with test services provided by the federation, or with other participating entities in Skolfederation Trial as well as test services provided by Skolverket for DNP. Technical personnel can also get acquainted with metadata management in Federationsadmin.
Do not use production information
Due to Trial being a completely open test environment for both IdP's and SP's, no control of organizations or entities is performed other than syntactical check of metadata for interoperability in the Trial federation. For IdP's, do not use production data (i.e. users) and be careful to which entities you allow access and release of user attributes and personal information.
