Certificate is not in a valid format when importing IdP metadata
Answer ID 12511   |   Last Review Date 12/16/2022

When importing IdP metadata into Single Sign-On Configurations, why are we getting the error "Certificate is not in a valid format?"

  • Oracle B2C Service, any version
  • Single Sign-On Configuration
  • Importing identity provider (IdP) metadata
We tried to import identity provider metadata but received the error "Certificate is not in a valid format."
There was whitespace in the certificate field in the IdP metadata XML. Removing this whitespace resolved the issue.
