Are you running the absolute latest version of V3? (The reason I ask
is that an important logging bug was fixed in V3.2.0.)

Given what you said above, I think you will be able to consume the new
aggregate just fine. Do you have a test IdP? If so, you should point
it at the preview aggregate starting on Friday.

That's great!

Can you be more specific? What "refresh and signing policies" are you
referring to?

Well, from what you've told me so far, you should be good to go.

We will import eduGAIN metadata into the preview aggregate on Friday,
January 15.

Hope this helps,
