SAP SuccessFactors Authentication - SAML Assertion maximum size


While trying SAP Authentication, we tried to generate SAML using 2 ways:

  • Using API call in Postman - <instance-url>/oauth/idp (this resulted in >5KB SAML Assertion)
  • Using terminal (this resulted in >3KB SAML Assertion)
  1. What is the difference between SAML generated via postman and via terminal?
  2. Also, does the size of SAML Assertion vary from user to user?
  3. Is there any specific length range for SAML assertion? and the maximum length of the SAML Assertion that gets generated by using the above-mentioned methods?
