Introduction to Integration




                              3
Introduction

• Institutions manage users
• Institutions could manage guest users with
  no other affiliation
• Tedious for institutions, and for users to
  have many accounts
• Federated and standard authentication
  allows for external authentication


                                               4
Introduction (continued)

• External user identifiers need to be stored
  somewhere Grouper can access them
• Grouper can be used for this
• The institution’s central Grouper
  administrator needs to configure this for all
  groups or certain folders




                                                  5
Inviting external users

• Group admins (admin privilege or read/update
  privilege) can invite external users
• From admin UI or lite UI
• Can invite multiple users at once
• Can add users to multiple groups at once (after
  registration)
• Can invite by email or user ID (generally you
  should use email)



                                                    6
Accepting external invitations

• External users will receive an invite email
• This invitation might expire after some
  time (1 week? Depends on configuration)
• Click on the link and sign in with an
  external sign-in provider




                                                7
Privacy problems with external sign-in

• Some external sign-ins will not send your
  login ID to the invitation system for privacy
  reasons
• You either need to:
  • Contact the sign-in admin to ask them to send
    the loginid to the invitation system
  • -or- Pick a different external sign-in system,
    and potentially create an account there (e.g.
    Google, ProtectNetwork, etc)


                                                     8
Register with Grouper

• After successfully signing in with Grouper’s
  invitation system
• Register your personal information
• The fields on this screen depend on the
  configuration
• The data is there so that applications can use it,
  and so that Grouper admins know who they are
  assigning groups/permissions to



                                                       9
Proceed to the application

• After registering with Grouper, you now have the
  groups/roles that you need to use the application
  that you were invited to
• If you do not know the website URL of the
  application you are trying to get to, ask the
  inviter what it is
• Proceed to the application, sign in with the same
  external sign-in that you used to register with
  Grouper
