In this article

Getting there

To create and manage your LibAuth profiles, go to LibApps > Admin > LibAuth Authentication.

Navigating to the Manage Authentication page
LibApps admin-level users can access LibAuth settings via the LibApps dashboard, under Admin > LibAuth Authentication.

Before setting up your new Symphony configuration, you'll want to work with your IT staff on the following:

Server Information

  • We use the Symphony Web Services API to talk to your Symphony server and allow patrons to log in via LibAuth. Please consult Symphony documentation or support to enable this service in your instance of Symphony.
  • Obtain the URL for your Symphony API and your Symphony Client Identifier.
Your mileage may vary: we understand that everyone's authentication system may be set up differently than what's considered standard. Because we can't anticipate all of the possible setup variations, your mileage may vary from what's covered in these guides. Please work closely with your IT staff and don't hesitate to contact Springy Support if you need any help!
