General Information and Configuration:
NameCoach supports SSO integration to its recording UI via CAS and SAML. For CAS support, your IT / IdP provider will have to contact NameCoach support to get going. For SAML (Shib), NameCoach is an Incommon member - our metadata expectations can be found here:
You can find our Entity ID, Entity Attributes, and Requested Attributes by clicking 'more technical info' on the incommon page.
When doing an SSO integration, the nice thing about the process is that accessing the recording UI is very straightforward. You link to:
Where IDP_PROVIDER is the name of an IdP provider (typically this will be your reverse FQDN with a protocol specifier) and NAME_PAGE_IDENTIFIER can be found in the Name Page admin UI for the Name Page in which you want to store the recordings. When users click on this link, if they're already authenticated in your environment, they arrive at the recording page, if they're not, they are routed back your your IdP for authentication and then redirected back to the NameCoach Web site once authentication has succeeded. As of this writing, a small amount of development work is typically required on the NameCoach side of things to handle different parameter passing schemes that may be used by your institution. Configuring the Identity Provider (IdP) to work with our implementation is something that you will have to handle. This is usually not hard to do, but can be time consuming from a project management perspective.
