Edit a LibAuth configuration's LibApps Login settings

In this article

LibAuth configurations of the following types can also be used to let staff log into their LibApps accounts:

When enabled, users will be given the option to use either their LibApps username & password or LibAuth to log into their LibApps accounts. For a login to be successful, keep in mind the following:

  • The user must already have a LibApps user account (i.e. LibAuth will not create a new account if one does not exist).
  • The email address returned by your authentication system to LibAuth must match the email address of the user's LibApps account.

Please note that enabling LibApps Login for a configuration does not force users to log in to LibApps that way. If you would like to disable the option to log in with a LibApps username and password and only use this LibAuth configuration, you can set this under Admin > LibAuth Authentication in the Require SSO Authentication for LibApps Login section.


Changing a configuration's LibApps Login settings

  1. When adding or editing one of the above configuration types, click on its LibApps Login tab.
  2. Use the Allow logging into LibApps using this authentication setting to turn the feature on or off.
    • Yes: users will be able to log in to LibApps using this LibAuth configuration.
    • No: this configuration will not appear as an option on the LibApps login page.
  3. When enabled, and if your configuration supports group permissions, you can restrict the LibApps Login feature to a specific group of users. Simply select the group permission rule from the LibAuth Group dropdown.
    • For example, if you have a group permission rule that will only allow logins from specific library staff members, you could select that group here to restrict the LibApps Login feature to those users.
  4. Click the Save button.
