  • Permission set rules so that your users as assigned an appropriate set of resources
  • Attribute mappings so that OpenAthens can make use of data available from your LDAPdirectory
    • OpenAthens will cache these attributes when the user signs in, so changes in ActiveDirectory won't be picked up until the next time the user starts an OpenAthens session.

When you're ready to go live, check both the live and visible boxes and then save. Your new connection should be testable a few seconds later.

Certificates - allows you to add a second certificate. Used when you need to change a server certificate on AD and want to minimise downtime for your users.

Advanced - Allows you to make several changes that are rarely necessary:

  • switch between SAML versions should you have a source that can only handle the older SAML 1 profile
  • switch the profile from Redirect to Post if your source insists on it
  • enable signing of authentication requests (SHA-1 or SHA-256) if your source requires it 
  • enable the SAML forceAuthn option (forces your local source to re-authenticate any time the user is sent there - e.g. where users can have multiple affiliations within a consortium and your SAML source's session management makes it difficult for them to change).

Anything to watch out for?
