Credo is happy to provide Single Sign-On with your Shibboleth/Open Athens account. There is a small bit of set up and testing needed prior to launch.
Please provide the following information to Credo, if possible:
- IdP Slug
- Entity ID
- Metadata URL, if different from Entity ID
- Preferred name of the authentication method (something like “Open University“) to show to the users.
You will need to define the following in your XML configuration:
- In the <saml2:AttributeStatement> add Email, full name and username (this will allow students to skip email verification and registration steps for shibboleth access)
When we provide your course URL it will then have a URL parameter that allows seamless access if your users are already logged into the IdP system.
