By default Funnelback assumes that the authentication process is occurs through a service provider initiated flow. That is, a user requests a protected resource and is redirected to the identity provider to get the session authentication. After which the user will be redirected to the originally requested resource. In some circumstances the identity provider itself might initiate the authentication process. In this case, since there isn’t a specific protected resource to redirect to, this key lets you set where to send the user. The URL can either be an absolute URL, or a path relative to the admin server.
