    I would like to develop an SAML2 application that will connect to ForgeRock federation identities, however I am a PHP developer, not a system admin or Java developer.

    I have already lost a full week trying to get a sandbox working with an AM or OpenAM so I could start coding my PHP platform that would connect on mock services. The obsolete documentation, the fact that so many details on a server can make tutorials fail, the complicated installation process and the endless pages of documentation are making this nearly impossible for me.

    I have searched so much on Google for the multitudes of problems I had and spent so much time analyzing error logs that I’m not sure anymore if I’ll ever have time to start coding what I actually need to do.

    So my question is: There has to be an easier way to do this? To anyone who wrote code that would connect to ForgeRock services, how did you do it? Is there a way to achieve this without having to learn/install/configure a full ForgeRock Environment that I will just end up deleting once everything works and I can just connect to production servers’ federated identities?

    It feel like right now I just want to build a cup holder for a car, but I have to build a whole car, just to try the cup holder.. A car I don’t need.

    Thanks to all
