This page is only visible to domain level administrators and allows the configuration of...
Accounts that have not been activated by users can be automatically deleted from one to 365 days (or never) after they are last modified; i.e. since the last change to the account rather than since the creation date. This will also act on accounts where you have used an activation email to securely reset a user's password, so a longer period is usually recommended.
The setting is separate from the one for expired accounts which is set per-organisation (i.e. per-administrator).
Accounts deleted by this operation are not recoverable.
This setting controls the appearance of two functions for your organisation administrators.
If you restrict this to administrator hierarchy, administrators will only be able to find accounts beneath their own organisation and any organisations that sit below them in the hierarchy, and the move option will also be limited to those organisations.
When users are signed out of OpenAthens via https://login.openathens.net/signout they will normally be sent to the standard you-have-been-signed-out page. If you have a library portal or similar this setting will allow you to specify a different page for users to be sent to after they are signed out so that you can offer them more options. You should indicate to them on that page that they have been signed out.
Changes are live within minutes, but users who have already visited the signout page will not be redirected until their browser's cache expires or is cleared.
As with sign-out, when a user activates their account they can either stop their journey at the success page, or if you specify an address here see a continue button that will take them to the page you specify.
Most of these features will only appear when the user is already 'discovered' - i.e. when they have selected your organisation at a resource or are using a Redirector link.
You can upload two versions of your logo. Currently they are used at the new OpenAthens authentication point to help users find their home organisation but they will be used in more places in the future.
To upload or replace a logo, select the large or small box.
This is limited to 160 characters of visible text. To include hyperlinked text, click the link button above the box. A dialogue will asked you for the URL (including http://, etc) and hyperlink text. This is restricted to simple links.
If you have multiple brokered logins (e.g. LDAP or Sirsi) this label will appear by the drop down list that displays them.
There is a choice of basic colours to choose from. If you need a specific colour, you can enter the hex code or name in the box. The button text is always white, so dark colours are recommended.
This appears at the very bottom of the AP and has the same options as the introductory text.
If you have a separate self-registration scheme, this option will be visible and if checked will show a link to it at the authentication point
If you are using local connections, checking this box will ensure that OpenAthens accounts will be a sign-in option - e.g. if you needed to use some OpenAthens account alongside your local login.
You only need to set this if you are using delegated logins such as SAML, ADFS or API as the other options will accept OpenAthens accounts.
When you save your changes, it may take a few minutes for them to appear on the authentication point.
The revert to defaults button will set absolutely everything on the page to their default values, removing logos and text too.
It is possible to set the delete non-activated accounts preference lower than the activation code expiry preference. This may cause confusion if you include the activation expiry date in your email template.
