IDP Metadata URL missing

I’m following online instructions for setting up Okta using SAML2. Specifically here How to Authenticate with SAML in ASP.NET Core and C# | Okta Developer
There should be a link to IDP metadata for my app but there isn’t anywhere.

There is a View SAML Instructions button. Instructions and things I’ve read online say there should be a link under this to the metadata url but there is no such link.

If I click into the SAML instructions I see:
1 Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL:
2 Identity Provider Issuer:
3 X.509 Certificate:
1 Provide the following IDP metadata to your SP provider .

The last one contains the metadata I would expect to be found if there were an independent IDP Metadata URL. According to instructions I was expecting an actual metadata url to be found somewhere as IDP metadata URL is consumed by the ITfoxtec.Identity.Saml2 that is described in the example app in the Okta dev pages.

Am I missing where it is?


Found the answer to this.
It is in the app signon tab. In the SAML Signing Certificates section, there is an Action button beside the created certs. In that Action button there is
“View IdP metadata” which opens a usable link you can put in the apps.
