After setting up SAML SSO, I cannot get our BI page to redirect to IDP.

SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.2 Support Pack 6
Version: 14.2.6.2839

I am trying to set up SAML SSO for BI in our test environment. The instructions I have been using are here:

https://blogs.sap.com/2017/11/17/saml-authentication-for-boe-on-tomcat/

I do not have SAP cloud so the IDP I have been using for testing purposes has been this:

https://samltest.id/

After following those steps and exchanging the metadata files, I access BI as we do normally through this url:

https://<server>.com/BOE/BI/

When I do this, I get the normal BI log in screen. From what I understand, the page should redirect automatically to the IDP but I do not see that. I see nothing in the tomcat logs complaining about this or anything. Can anyone suggest what I can look at to resolve this? I am seeing nothing on the BI side to suggest anything is configured wrong.
