How can you tell if this is from legacy federation or new federation partnership model setup?

Environment

Release : 12.8.03

Component : SITEMINDER FEDERATION SECURITY SERVICES

Resolution

Based on code analysis:

public static final String PARTNERSHIP_SOURCE     = "PartnershipSource";
public static final String PS_UNKNOWN    = "0";
public static final String PS_LEGACY        = "1";
public static final String PS_SOA               = "2";
public static final String PS_FM                 = "3";

"Partnership source value = 1" means this is legacy federation.

"Partnership source value = 3" means this is new federation partnership.
