SSO and LDAP/S

[ SCROLL TO SECTIONS IN CHAPTER ]

WCONLINE allows optional single sign-on (SSO) and LDAP/LDAPS so that students can use their institution's credentials to log into WCONLINE. With SSO or LDAP/S, all clients still have to register by filling out your registration form, but there is no option to change the email address or set a password.

With SSO, students log in on the institution's server and are passed to WCONLINE logged-in. Typically, this is useful when students are already comfortable logging in to access other information. And, SSO will work with nearly any authentication method you are already using, because authentication is handled entirely on your end. Administrators log in on the WCONLINE login page. Students who are not yet registered are taken to your registration form with the email address already entered and no option to set a password. Students who are already registered are taken straight to the schedule.

With SSO, you can attach one piece of data to each student so that the data appears in one drop-down menu on your appointment form.

With LDAP/S, all individuals log in on the WCONLINE login page using the username and password that they use at the institution. Anyone who is not yet registered is taken to your registration form with no option to change their email address or enter a password. Someone who is already registered is taken to the schedule.

For both SSO and LDAP/S, you can find all instructions, question bubbles and examples within Global System Settings. In Global System Settings, click the "AUTHENTICATION OPTIONS" link at the top, and then you (or someone in your IT department ) will be able to set up SSO or LDAPS. Once the authentication method is selected and the settings are entered, saved, tested and made live, the login method is up and running.
