How does Digication handle single sign-on (SSO)?

Schools can integrate with Digication and implement single sign-on (SSO) very easily through the use of a simple login script.  The Digication API allows a school to handle user access based on any system of their own choosing.   A PDF that explains the process has been attached along with code samples in PHP, ColdFusion, and Java that demonstrate using a school's LDAP server to log users into Digication.

Using The Example Script

Here are the configuration variables you will need to collect:

  • An ip address for the LDAP server that is accessible by Digication's login server
  • The name of the LDAP field that will correlate with a users's SyncID in Digication (default is 'employeenumber')
  • The name of the LDAP field that contains the username (default is 'samaccountname')
  • The "DOMAIN" portion of the "DOMAIN\username" string users will use to bind to the LDAP server  
  • The name of the LDAP field that contains the email address (default is 'mail')
  • The name of the LDAP field that contains the user's first name (default is 'givenname')
  • The name of the LDAP field that contains the user's last name (default is 'sn')
  • An LDAP field that specifies whether or not a user is faculty as well as what a positive and negative record will look like (no default)
  • An LDAP search base for finding the users (eg. dc=digication,dc=com)
