[EP-tech] Shibboleth and local login



Hi Yuri,

The default instructions at?https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Shibboleth?assum
e users have already been created. ?This is the more secure assumption.
?As someone may want to use institutional login but only wants a
specific set of users to be able to login and do not want or are not
able to configure the IdP to do this. ?

There is a version of the script in the Customisation section of the
Shibboleth page that shows how to do user account creation as well. ?I
have just updated the page so it is more obvious that this script does
account creation from the page's table of contents. ?I have also
amended in ?the instructions for the default login script that it does
not create user accounts and to look at the customisation section.
?Further to this, I figured out what causes the 500 error and ammended
the login script. ?So instead you should get take to an account
required page, if you can login with Shibboleth but do not have an
account on the EPrints repository.

I will look into whether the Webserver_authentication page can be
deprecated. ?if so I will put a notice on it telling users to use the
Shibboleth page instead.

Regards

David Newman
