Final steps

Once you have defined the login box text to suit your organisation (on the login page tab) you are ready to deal with the final two configuration areas:

...

FieldExplanation

Name

The name of the connection as it will appear to users at our authentication point when there is a choice of connector.

Server host

The address where OpenAthens can connect to your server. This address will need to be accessible by our services from outside of your network.

E.g. sirsidynix.yourdomain.com

Server port

The port that your server uses for API traffic. You can specify a non-standard port if necessary.

E.g. 8080

Endpoint URL

Where the API calls should be sent

E.g. /symws4

Client ID

Your client ID

E.g. AB_CLIENT

Admin username

Not normally required. Only has to be specified if you need to map or act on privileged attributes such as 'category-1'.

Admin password

Not normally required. Only has to be specified if you need to map or act on privileged attributes such as 'category-1'.

 

Status

Not live = Can only be used in debug mode.

Live and not visible = Can only be used in debug mode.

Live & visible = production ready. Users will be able to access this login at the authentication point. If you have only one connection it will become the default login whenever your organisation is known (e.g. for any resources where access involves your entityID).

Changes to the status usually take effect within moments.

Create local accounts

Automatically - any user authenticated by your system is deemed ok and will be accepted by the system

Manually - only user IDs you have previously uploaded will be accepted by our systems. See how to limit which local accounts can sign in

Remove local accounts

...

Connections from us will come from the following IP addresses (5.198.136.*35.189.71.17 and 35.224.184.162) and your network team may need to be told. Changes to these addresses would be communicated in advance.
