Proxy Set Up and Access

Proxies allow remote users to access protected online content. If your institution has a proxy server, proxied links to your content are available on your Instructor Page.

The proxy needs to be configured by your institution in order for your proxy to allow a connection to Credo Education. When the proxy configuration file is updated, you will need to stop and restart the proxy service for the change to take effect. The Credo Education products are on a secure server, sent via https, and as such will need an SSL Certificate on the proxy server. If you do not have a certificate, you may need to complete a self-signed one or purchase one. You can learn more about SSL Certificates on the OCLC website.


EZ Proxy Configuration

We recommend you add *.credocourseware.com as a wildcard, to cover any possible subdomain. Please note that if you add a new Credo configuration, you will need to remove any previous Credo configurations for the new one to take effect.

Here are examples of EZ Proxy configurations with wildcards (please use only one in your file):

Title Credo Education

URL https://[yourSchool].credocourseware.com 
DJ *.credocourseware.com

Example: sprocketu.credocourseware.com

If your proxy requires explicit subdomains instead of a wild card, please use one of the following configurations:

Title Credo Education
URL https://[yourSchool].credocourseware.com 

Example: sprocketu.credocourseware.com


 WAM Proxy Configuration

You will need to update your WAM redirect table with whatever Credo URLs you will run into. We recommend you add *.credocourseware.com as a wildcard, to cover any possible subdomain. If you require explicit subdomains, please use the following:

[yourSchool].credocourseware.com

Example: sprocketu.credocourseware.com
