Queries information about a Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) service provider (SP).

Usage notes

During SAML 2.0-based single sign-on (SSO) logon, CloudSSO is an SP, and the identity management system of an enterprise is an identity provider (IdP).

This topic provides an example on how to query the information about the SP within the directory d-00fc2p61****.


You can call this operation up to 100 times per second per account. This operation is globally limited to 100 times per second across all accounts. If the number of the calls per second exceeds a limit, throttling is triggered. As a result, your business may be affected. We recommend that you take note of the limits when you call this operation.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
