Default name ID

DefaultNameIDFormat configuration parameter of a SAML federation: The format of the default nameID returned by YouTrack when a service provider requests an unspecified name identifier format.

In SAML, a service provider indicates the name identifier format it wants to receive from YouTrack. If the SP uses unspecified as the format for the nameID (urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameidformat:unspecified) in the request to sign in to YouTrack, then YouTrack returns the nameID in the format defined by this parameter.

For the description of the standard name identifier formats, refer to the Section 8.3 of the Assertions and Protocols for the OASIS SAML2.0 standard.
