Access Controlling Online Resources -- Wikis, Lecture Capture, Room Booking
- 5 years in middleware
- 5 years working w Shibboleth
- 2 years working w Grouper
Decided to deploy wikis in the institute.
Must be authenticated to the wiki
There are access control needs , there are several
hierarchical wikis: 6 wikis and 50 users
Various teams needed access to different wikis : unit teams wiki, network wiki, etc.
Created IT services handbook
Used combo of Shibboleth and Grouper to address wiki access challenges
Shibboleth queries database, gets attributes, passes information to Grouper
Use a recap system by Copia from Australia
There is also a room booking system. So, for example, people in agriculture can book agriculture buildings. There was hierarchical access control. There are staff, deptartmental, location and organizational hierarchies.
Use a loader process that loads these up into Grouper.
