LibAuth configurations of the following types can also be used to let staff log into their LibApps accounts:
- Active Directory (ADFS)
- Central Authentication Service (CAS)
- Self-hosted (JSON return type only)
- OAuth 2
- SirsiDynix Symphony
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
- When adding or editing one of the above configuration types, click on its LibApps Login tab.
- 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.
- 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.
- Click the Save button.
