Periodic Updating of Metadata

I know this topic has been discussed before, but outside of doing something very custom, is there any way to get NAM to do periodic updating/re-reading of SP metadata?  I recently was setting up an SP and the vendor expires their metadata every hour!  Every time you pull the metadata, the validTo timestamp is one hour in the future.  Of course, I can just edit the metadata and do a manual text import, but I'm wondering if there is a more elegant way to just get NAM to refresh it now?

  • I plan to have something created to do this in the next week or so. It will grab the metadata, verify the signature, optionally check the version and expiration to see if an update is needed. The tricky part is that often metadata needs to be modified so I plan to have the ability to configure a custom modifier class for each SP. The metadata will then be updated using the admin API and then the config will  be refreshed. I'm thinking of making the refresh optional so that a notification can be sent to the admin instead. The question is, who is willing to pay for this functionality.
