Cirrus and UIndy deployed and configured the Cirrus Identity Provider Proxy as the single SAML endpoint for CampusLogic. The Cirrus CAS Bridge was integrated with Slate to translate the Slate CAS authentication responses to SAML. Both the UIndy Identity Provider and the Cirrus Bridge for Slate were then integrated with the Cirrus Proxy so both sets of users could access CampusLogic.
To streamline SSO access to CampusLogic, Cirrus constructed bypass URLs to take applicants to Slate to login and campus users to the UIndy CAS Identity Provider to login. With this bypass url, most users will be automatically authenticated without seeing a discovery login screen with 2 buttons.
The net result was that both applicants and faculty, staff and students all have seamless access to CampusLogic! Both service desk and tech support are minimized. The administrative overhead of creating and deleting applicant accounts was avoided. The technical integration was implemented within 2-3 weeks and the communication plan for all users was implemented within 6 weeks.
