Description (partial)

Symptom:
This is a part of guide https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/expressway/config_guide/X12-5/exwy_b_mra-expressway-deployment-guide/exwy_b_mra-expressway-deployment-guide_chapter_01000.html#reference_A26C25F0BB9019656A84E8208AFBE864:
1. In Windows PowerShell®, repeat the following command for each Expressway-E's <EntityName>:
Set-ADFSRelyingPartyTrust -TargetName "<EntityName>" -SAMLResponseSignature MessageAndAssertion

It's not clear what EntityName is. This confused customers and force them to use FQDN of EXP-E for EntityName, which is incorrect.
EntityName - must be a "Display name" as it set in ADFS for expressway's Relating Party Trust.

2. "Repeat the following command for each Expressway-E" also confusing part, as exprted metata data contains all information about all expressway in cluster, you have to run the command one time, once per Relying Party Trust created on ADFS.

Conditions:
Installation/configuration of MRA SSO using guide https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/expressway/config_guide/X12-5/exwy_b_mra-expressway-deployment-guide/exwy_b_mra-expressway-deployment-guide_chapter_01000.html
