Just when I thought I was out...

Luminis has been running at different levels of efficiency and effectiveness for about 12 years now, and it's still kicking around on the original Sun V880s we bought for the purpose. We've seen ups and downs and a diminishing role of the portal (called MyBCIT) as time has rolled on. Due to resource constraints, MyBCIT has seen limited discussion at the IT Services meetings, less focus from students and faculty and an overall march to retirement.

Until two months ago.

Web Analyst (developer) position at Portland Community College

Submitted by Jason on Fri, 03/24/2017 - 14:18

We are looking for a web developer to replace someone that has moved on. Our web team consists of 7 people (3 developers, 1 content/accessibility specialist, 1 content maintainer, 1 designer, and our manager).

This position would focus mostly on server-side code, Java (Luminis 5.3 as well as custom code), Coldfusion (various custom apps), PHP, sql/mysql. Web server administration would be a plus. We run tomcat/apache as well as IIS.

PCC is the largest school in the state of Oregon and Portland is a great place to live, although I'm likely biased:)

Luminis 4.3 ADFS 3.0 GCF

Submitted by aperture01 on Thu, 03/23/2017 - 10:25

Hi All,

We started using Luminis with a custom live@edu mod that allowed our students and staff to SSO onto live@edu. The service since turned into office365 and that connector broke. Thanks to the lumdev and Bill Ramsey we were able to use a GCF connector to login to ADFS thus regaining that functionality. Just recently we upgraded our ADFS 2.0 servers to ADFS 3.0 servers which has again broke this connector. Has anyone used GCF on Lum 4 to login to SSO to office 365?

Creating a My Courses portlet with more information

Submitted by jmacke on Mon, 02/20/2017 - 17:10


We would like to create a portlet that is similar to My Courses, but with some additional information. Courses that are not yet active at the beginning of the semester (2nd 8-week courses, or those with a different start date than the rest of the semester), or haven't been made active by the professor, do not show in My Courses. Students would also like to see additional information with building/room codes, meeting times, start/stop times. Ideally it would list all of this in a portlet instead of being a link to a schedule. Has anyone created a portlet like this?

Luminis5 CAS and Shibboleth Integration

Submitted by larrypeng on Wed, 02/08/2017 - 11:35



We have Luminis 5.2.2 in production. CAS is installed with Luminis installer. We are deploying a Shibboleth server on campus in order to add SAML support. In order to provide a seamless SSO experience, we are trying to figure out the best way to integrate Luminis CAS and Shibboleth. We wonder if any school has gone through similar process and we would like to hear from you about your successful experience and recommendations. Your response will be much appreciated!

Luminis IV and Firefox 52 bug, the same Chrome bug is going to bite you

Submitted by Arthur_K on Tue, 02/07/2017 - 07:22

The same Chrome bug ( https://www.lumdev.net/node/13633) that is preventing users from logging in will hit *all* users of Firefox when version 52 is released in March. I have opened a bug for this issue (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1336130). Firefox 51.0.1 is still safe to use.
