This space contains the old OpenAthens SP documentation and is no longer maintained.
OpenAthens SP software is already out of support and reached end of life in May 2020.

Check out OpenAthens Keystone instead. It's supercool and makes dealing with SAML much easier.

The following .jar files from the download will need to be moved into your Java library folder:

  • atacama-core-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-athens-module-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-shibboleth-module-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-saml-module-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-transport-module-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-saml-library-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-server-module-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-xml-library-X.X.X.jar
  • atacama-log-module-X.X.X.jar
  • gson-1.4.jar
  • commons-codec-1.4.jar
  • commons-discovery-0.4.jar
  • commons-id-0.1-dev.jar
  • commons-logging.jar
  • xmlsec-1.4.4.jar
  • serializer.jar
  • xalan.jar
  • xercesImpl-2.9.1.jar

The library folder location will vary by implementation. It will need to be created (as path.../lib/) if it does not already exist. Some examples of typical locations are:

JavaExample location
Linux - Tomcat
Windows - TomcatC:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 7.0\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\lib\

Environment variables

If you are installing manually, you will also need to set the ATACAMA_HOME location:

export ATACAMA_HOME=/usr/local/atacama-platform
set ATACAMA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\eduserv\atacama-platform

If you are using non-standard variables, you will need to include the atacama locaion in your startup folder

... -Datacama.home=/usr/local/atacama-platform/

... -Datacama.home=C:\Program Files (x86)\eduserv\atacama-platform
