We think we know the answer to this, but just want to confirm. We're trying to figure out where the AAA action is failing on what amounts to be a relatively complex AAA action.
We have a AAA policy that Accepts a SAML Assertion with a signature. When we look at the context variables after the AAA action, we can see the 'var://context/WSM/identity/username' was extracted correctly, but that 'var://context/WSM/identity/authenticated-user' is an empty string.
Does this mean the signature was invalid... ie... the authentication failed?

The best way to determine if the signature was invalid is to look at the logs from the transaction. Try setting the log level to debug and turn the probe on. You can look at the logs for a single transaction to see if the signature verification succeeded or failed. There are also some context variables available in the context after AAA that hold the output from each step.
