Not sure if this is the most elegant method, but if you retreive the
"metadata" from your IDP:
Locate the URL for the SingleSignOnService (something like):

At the bottom, will show various "Authentication Cards" each one of the
links on the cards contains a different id=###.

The id value appears to represent different login contracts.


Thank You for your help!
