Entity ID

To set up integration between the DCS and Shibboleth/OpenAthens, we need your Entity ID. Below are some examples to show you what they are and what they look like.

 

Shibboleth

Typically the Shibboleth Entity ID is based on your HEI’s domain name. So based on others we have seen (using CLA University as an example) this may look like:

https://shib.CLA.ac.uk/shibboleth

 

Open Athens

The DCS integrates with Open Athens through the Shibboleth Gateway (WAYFless URLs mean that selecting from the Gateway is not required by students) therefore we will need the Athens via Shibboleth Gateway Entity ID.

It should look something like this:

https://openathens.HEINAME.ac.uk/oala/metadata

or

https://athensla.HEINAME.ac.uk/oala/metadata
