The DSX Discovery Service is recommended to be used in embedded fashion because this is generally more user-friendly as the organisation selection is integrated directly into the service's web page. For this to work, the authentication needs to be triggered from a page where an included Javascript provides the functionality to show the embedded Discovery Service. On this page examples for Shibboleth SP and SimpleSAMLphp are provided.


The DSX Discovery Service (formerly known as eduTEAMS Discovery Service) allows services to implement an (embedded) Identity Provider discovery.

Currently, the service is in a pilot phase, therefore some aspects of the service still may change.

This section contains functional and technical documentation on how to use the discovery service if you are a administrator of a service.

Shibboleth SP

In this example we first configure the DSX Discovery Service to be used by the default Shibboleth login handler.
