    User Authentication: Administration Console -- User Authentication Settings - Shibboleth Configuration

    • Product: 360 Core Client Center

    How do I configure Shibboleth authentication in the User Authentication settings in the Administration Console?

    This Answer is part of a larger set of documentation about using the Administration Console to configure your User Authentication service.

    This Answer contains instructions for enabling Shibboleth authentication as your credential-based user authentication method.
    On the Configure User Authentication page, select Shibboleth from the drop-down menu. The page will then look like this:
    User Authentication -- Admin Console - Shibboleth

    Enter your library's Shibboleth Entity ID, IdP SSO Location, and Attributes in the appropriate fields. Only the Entity ID is required.
    IdP SSO Location is the Identity Provider Single Sign-On Location. Adding this information will provide a WAYF-less experience for your users.
    Shibboleth Attributes are named sets of values about an authenticated user. For example, eduPerson is an attribute.
    Whoever manages your institution's Shibboleth service can provide you with the Entity ID, IdP SSO Location, and attributes.
    If you want to use Shibboleth as your credential-based user authentication method for 360 Access Control, your library must be a member of a Shibboleth federation that Serials Solutions supports, because 360 Access Control relies on both customer-specific metadata and Shibboleth federation metadata. If your library belongs to a Shibboleth federation that Serials Solutions does not support, use the Contact Us menu above to explore some options with us.
