CAS Single Sign On Configuration

The purpose of CAS is to permit a user to access multiple applications while providing their credentials only once. It also allows web applications to authenticate users without gaining access to a user's security credentials, such as a password. 

The information need to configure CAS has to be provided by the host library to Marmot.  The CAS server  will also need to provide information needed to authenticate the patron in the ILS.

The CAS Single Sign On functionality was built specifically for a single library. At this time, Marmot cannot offer this integration for any libraries other than the library it was built for.

Go to Pika Configuration and Library Systems from the left sidebar.  

Click the Library Id number, or the Edit link to gain access to the Library Systems page.

Click on the CAS Single Sign On tab.
