Direct Open Athens integration for users not registered with the UK Federation

Creating a 1-2-1 Athens SAML Integration

To add a new non UK Federation HEI to our Shibboleth SP configuration CLA require the following information


1) your HEIs entityID
2) the metadata URL for your entityID

You will also need to add the DCS Service Provider (SP) metadata to your IDP configuration, the 3 SP entityIds and metadata URLs are:

 

Test Site

EntityID - https://test-dcs.cla.co.uk/shibboleth

Metadata - http://mdq.ukfederation.org.uk/entities/https:%2F%2Ftest-dcs.cla.co.uk%2Fshibboleth

 

Demo Site

EntityID - https://demo-dcs.cla.co.uk/shibboleth

Metadata - http://mdq.ukfederation.org.uk/entities/https:%2F%2Fdemo-dcs.cla.co.uk%2Fshibboleth

 

Production Site

EntityID - https://contentstore.cla.co.uk/shibboleth

Metadata - http://mdq.ukfederation.org.uk/entities/https:%2F%2Fcontentstore.cla.co.uk%2Fshibboleth

 

We will need to test the above in the test system to check that the integration is working. If you can only add 1 SP for the DCS to your IDP configuration, you will need to start with test and then replace this with the live metadata after testing is complete.

 

PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO A NEW AGREEMENT WITH OUR DEVELOPERS WE NOW REQUIRE FOUR MONTHS NOTICE BEFORE WE CAN UPDATE A DIRECT ATHENS INTEGRATION.
