RTCPeerConnection: idpvalidationerror event

This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

An idpvalidationerror event informs the target, a RTCPeerConnection object, that the identity provider (IdP) encountered an error when trying to validate an identity assertion. An event handler for this event can be added via the RTCPeerConnection.onidpvalidationerror property.

Bubbles No
Cancelable No
Interface RTCIdentityErrorEvent
Event handler property onidpvalidationerror

Important: This event is no longer used; it was removed from the specification long ago. Instead, you should watch for the RTCPeerConnection.peerIdentity promise to be rejected with an OperationError.
