i have enabled the identity provider setup and filled all the correct details on SAML with the Metadata, i have also created a connected app and enabled SAML and filled the Entity ID with the SimpleSamlPHP url and added my Salesforce Domain login under ACS URL however when i go back to identity provider i still cannot see any Service Providers, i enabled it under the profile i am currently using, ive run out ideas and what else to try?
The Service Providers are not shown any more under the Service Providers section when looking at an Identity Provider. They are only listed in the Connected Apps section. I don't think it's a bug, they just decided to have them only at that other location.
Note that this screenshot coming from the Implementing Single Sign-On Across Multiple Organizations is outdated. Nothing is listed now in the Service Providers section. (But it all still works if you follow the tutorial.)
Service providers are now moved under connected app..You will find under connected apps section.
