Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had AtoM 2.4.1 and Shibboleth working with Clean URL's (no script name)?

I have the following .htaccess file
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
  RewriteEngine On

  # uncomment the following line, if you are having trouble
  # getting no_script_name to work
  RewriteBase /

  # we skip all files with .something
  #RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} \..+$
  #RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.html$
  #RewriteRule .* - [L]

  # we check if the .html version is here (caching)
#  RewriteRule ^$ index.html [QSA]
#  RewriteRule ^([^.]+)$ $1.html [QSA]
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.sso/
#  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

  # no, so we redirect to our front web controller
  RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php [QSA,L]
</IfModule>
However, when I try to login to shibboleth the apache variables get rewritten with the prefix REDIRECTED_.

I did notice though I try to go to /index.php/user/login though it does show the variables without the REDIRECTED_ prefix.

Thanks for any suggestions or ideas.
Tom

Just wanted to follow up.

<Location />
  AuthType shibboleth
  ShibRequestSetting requireSession 0
  require shibboleth
</Location>
 
<Location /user/login>
   AuthType shibboleth
   ShibRequestSetting requireSession 1
   Require valid-user
</Location>

I did not have the first Location Directive adding that with the settings did fix this issue.

Thanks!
Tom

Hi Tom, 

I'm glad to hear you've figured out what you needed! 

AtoM has support for basic LDAP (described in ticket #9765 though apparently not yet in our formal docs! will have to get on that...), but as far as I know, we've never tested it for use with Shibboleth. Are you trying to use it out of the box, have you made local customizations, or are you using a community-developed integration such as this one?

Hi Dan,

Unfortunately, LDAP is currently out of the question for our implementation at this time, and have a big push towards using Shibboleth for SSO as it is.

Sorry, I thought I mentioned I was using the CENDARI Shibboleth plugin. I had to make a couple of changes to that code to get it working, which I plan on turning into a Pull Request on that project. For example that code is looking for attributes to be named a specific way and we don't name them that way. So looking at making it a configuration option similar to how one can specify the shibboleth groups in the config.

Interesting, thanks! 

If they accept your pull request, please let me know! If so, I can update the entry on our wiki to say that this has been known to work with the public AtoM 2.4 release. 

Cheers,

Dan, I only had to change what attributes I we are using, so I think you are safe to say it has been tested on 2.4.1.
