We provide single-sign-on authentication with CAS to handle user and blog management.  The process is relatively simple and our team will provide assistance to help set it up.

What we need:

Email contact@campuspress.com and let us know you want to set up authentication with CAS and provide the following information:

  1. Server details and version
  2. Hostname
  3. Port
  4. Path
  5. Login URL
  6. Logout URL
  7. The email domain(s) used by staff and student user accounts
  8. CAS user account we can use for testing and troubleshooting

CAS Customization Options

CAS can be set to auto create user accounts only or to auto create user/site accounts.
Affiliations can be used to auto add users to course blogs based on the users affiliation meta and affiliation value.  Underneath the site URL in Sites in the network admin you’ll see affiliation action link where a super admin is able to set it up. Users are only added to the Course blog when they log into your CampusPress network.
