Infobase Single Sign-On (SSO) Integration

Currently available for our Streaming Video Platform, you can utilize our dynamic Query String URL technology to create a true Single-Sign On experience for your students and instructors. By passing several key SSO parameters in conjunction with your Account Specific Access URL, users can be logged in automatically to their personal user accounts or have a new user account created for them.
This article will go over all the available options for Query String URL SSO Authentication.
In order for the authentication portion to work, please contact support to enable your account for SSO and to receive you wid.
Optional for Direct Title Access
The above URL would automatically authenticate as Account 123456, and attempt to create the new user “jsmith”. If this user already exists anywhere within your Consortia or Institution, they will be logged in directly. If the username is not taken elsewhere, it will be created at whichever Account ID was included and with any of the additional parameters you provided.
To ensure your requested usernames are not previously in use, we recommend you provide our Support Team with a unique User Prefix that we can add to every username being created for your Account.
Consortia Account Support
Any User being logged in for the first time using this new SSO Query String Method will be prompted to select which individual institution they belong to. If you only have a single institution, this will not apply to you. This feature will create/move users to the appropriate sub-account as a one-time identification process. If the user has previously been verified, or their specified account does not have any sub-accounts, this option will be bypassed automatically.
