Expose an API that accepts an SP metadata file to board applications using SAML 2.0.

As a TFIM customer, application owners have grown accustom to boarding applications using an SP metadata file.  We have 1000+ applications relying on SP metadata.  The /v1.0/applications API only supports a json payload. 


Providing an API that accepts SP metadata would ease the migration burden.

    Hello - Thanks for your idea, we definitely see value in the ability to automatically import metadata to auto setup a connection. At this time, we've added it to the backlog and will come back when further scheduling has been completed.
