Log Context

Log”Ignoring setting [{}] because the IdP metadata is being loaded from a file” classname is SamlRealm.java
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

         final String entityId = require(config; IDP_ENTITY_ID);
        final Path path = config.env().configFile().resolve(metadataPath);
        final FilesystemMetadataResolver resolver = new FilesystemMetadataResolver(path.toFile());

        if (IDP_METADATA_HTTP_REFRESH.exists(config.settings())) {
            logger.info("Ignoring setting [{}] because the IdP metadata is being loaded from a file";
                    RealmSettings.getFullSettingKey(config; IDP_METADATA_HTTP_REFRESH));
        }

        // We don't want to rely on the internal OpenSAML refresh timer; but we can't turn it off; so just set it to run once a day.
        // 
TODO : Submit a patch to OpenSAML to optionally disable the timer
