The following exchange I just had with an InCommon IdP operator may be of
interest to other InCommon R&S SPs:

IdPO: We don't have a business case for CILogon. Please remove our IdP from
your list.
CILogon: Please set the hide-from-discovery attribute for your IdP to remove
yourself from the list.
IdPO: The hide-from-discovery attribute will break things for the SPs we care
CILogon: OK, we've manually blacklisted your IdP.

I'd be interested to know which SPs they have (presumably collaborative ones?) where the SP actually does something with hide-from-discovery, if they also think they don't have a use case for CILogon. Maybe they don't understand how hide-from-discovery works?

I would love to pursue a conversation with this IdP sideband to learn more. Jim, if you could share details with me, I will dig deeper.



Just one data point so far, but it adds a new wrinkle for our "list 'em all"
