[EP-tech] Shibboleth and local login



Hi Yuri,

The instructions I wrote at ?https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Shibboleth?have
a config file call zz_shibboleth.pl in your archives's cfg/cfg.d/ that
uses the following line in the get_login_url sub:

my $url = URI->new( $session->config( "https_url" )??.
"/shibboleth/login" );

This is the equivalent to what you have suggested below.

Also these instructions explain that you need to add the following to
your archive's ssl/securevhost.conf after the Include line for
EPRINTS_PATH/cfg/apache_ssl/ARCHIVENAME.conf, substituting foo for your
archive name below:

Alias /shibboleth /opt/eprints3/archives/foo/shibboleth
<Location "/shibboleth">
? SetHandler perl-script
? PerlHandler ModPerl::Registry
? PerlSendHeader Off
? Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks

? AuthType shibboleth
? ShibRequestSetting requireSession 1
? require shib-session
</Location>

<Location /cgi/shibboleth>
? AuthType shibboleth
? ShibRequestSetting requireSession 1
? require shib-session
</Location>

The second Location block is not absolutely necessary unless you want
to deploy the /cgi/shibboleth test script.

With this config, I can go to /cgi/users/login on http or https and not
be redirected to /shibboleth/login?

Regards

David Newman
