Re: [EP-tech] ADFS login?

Any thoughts on this?


I am importing users from our live system which have usernames and ID numbers matching our active directory so I’m hoping that it shouldn’t be too hard to authenticate. My ideal process would be:


·         User logs in –

·         Are they in the user table?

o   If not, add them and authenticate

o   If so, authenticate


That would enable our creator browse to pick them up after a single log in, however we would probably have to figure out a process for removing users after they leave or deactivating them somehow. The big question is, of course, if their username is reused (which I’m told shouldn’t happen!)

Subject: [EP-tech] ADFS login?


Hello all!


Another thing I want to do is introduce an ADFS or similar based login system into the new migration of EPrints. As I mentioned, all users I’m migrating over have usernames and ID number that are relative to our internal systems, so I’d like to be able to authenticate logins against those systems and create new users where applicable. Again, is there any known methods (plugins etc) out there for doing this?
