Issue/Introduction

We are unable to access some or all functionality for Federation in the Administrative UI. We are able to access the policies and infrastructure without any problems, however only the Federation portion is giving us problems.

 

We see the following in the smps logs when we try to access the Federation functionality of the AdminUI:

[6121/-396674192][Thu May 25 2017 18:04:11][XPSSvcHandlerManageObjects.cpp:669][CreateObject][ERROR][sm-xpssvc-00140] Failed to get the DD Reference for an Attribute, Attr = CA.FED::SPPartnership.SecureAuthURL, Vendor = CA, Prod = FED, Class = PartnershipBase
