Portal position at Lehigh University

Submitted by gskinner on Wed, 09/14/2016 - 09:57

Hello Lumdev'ers! Sadly my portal developer relocated with her family and I am once again looking for someone to lead the direction of our portal. We did successfully migrate to Luminis 5.2 about 18 months ago, so if anyone is still fighting Luminis 4 and wants to be on Luminis 5.... well come at work at Lehigh University! I'm also wanting the ideal candidate to be able to pick up and work with Drupal. We do a lot of web development on campus using Drupal and we've also tied some portal content in via SSO and Drupal.

CMS with Luminis 5?

Submitted by baumli on Thu, 09/01/2016 - 10:53

I'm still working on our migration from Lum4 to 5, and one sticking point has been with our CMS. We use cascade server to manage all of our web pages and documents. On Luminis 4 we used a directory that was already there to publish secure documents to, so that users would have to be logged in to see them. With Luminis 5, we lose this feature due to Liferay. There is no directory that we can publish to that will allow only logged in users to have access to them. Ellucian said this is due to the document library in Liferay that forces you to use their process.

CMS with Luminis V?

Submitted by baumli on Thu, 03/03/2016 - 14:49

We are currently on Luminis 4, and use Cascade CMS to manage the internal documents that we post to the portal. We created a Docs folder within /opt/luminis/webapps/luminis/jsp and this serves our purpose. Any document we publish to that folder is protected from public view, you have to be logged into the portal to open it. We want the same functionality with Luminis 5. Is anyone else using a CMS for their document management? Looking initially at the Documents and Media Display portlet, its not doing the same that we require from our CMS. Any thoughts?

Luminis 5 Performance

Submitted by squidgravy on Fri, 12/11/2015 - 17:08

We just went live with Luminis 5 about 2 weeks ago. Has anyone experienced any performance issues with the portal? We are seeing (at times) the login process taking upwards of a minute or more to complete the login process to Luminis 5. In addition to that moving from page to page can (at times) take 15 + seconds each. Interesting to note though, once the browser has cached everything in the portal we are able to move throughout the portal with ease.

total n00b trying to install Luminis 5.x

Submitted by cjazinski on Wed, 11/11/2015 - 19:10

So a little bit of background on me (before you judge my post). I am new to the Ellucian world. I have been tasked with looking at implementing/administrating and ultimately developing for the Luminis 5 portal. I don't have much system experience out side of maintaining a blackboard instance (LMS) along with some web development. Anyways I'm hoping to blog my trek through the Ellucian products and hopefully someday help someone that is also just starting.

and then accees it through:

Has anyone managed to enable this?

Luminis will not log in properly

Submitted by alin.tomoiaga@t... on Sat, 10/10/2015 - 21:04

This Luminis installation somehow got broken.

It gets past the cas login screen, displays the Luminis site but no dropdown to access the control panel or other sites. Instead it shown a signIn link and a key icon. The error is not about the user I am trying to login, but some sort of default Liferay user... Anyone saw anything similar?

The logs only say:

Classified Ads for LP5?

Submitted by deurv on Mon, 07/06/2015 - 14:00

In LP4 I had a Classified Ad channel. I believe I got the instructions from another univeristy (maybe University of Sackatchewan). I tried to look up Liferay portlets but didn't see anything alongs these lines.

Does someone have a portlet for this use and would you be willing to share it? I'm on LP5.2.2.

GCF connector pickup.reponse not deauthenticating

Submitted by rcarvell on Mon, 06/15/2015 - 09:10

Hi,

We are going live with Luminis 5 in 2 weeks. We have been on Luminis 4 for years. We have an applicant (SSB) CPIP connector in 4.

We imported the cpip connector to 5. We tweaked with Ellucian's help and have the authentication working. The problem is with the deauthentication.

I am able to successfully test through the ADMIN GCF Connector portlet. When I press the deauthentication button, it successfully deauthenticates. I also see in the deauthenticate called in the luminis.log.
