iPhone and Luminis

Submitted by cryptyq on Thu, 11/12/2009 - 16:05

Hi...I'm new to this forum.  I'm a web developer for a university that uses Luminis for the student/faculty/employee portal.  We are interested in creating a native iPhone app to access, among other things, some portal content.  I am able to generate a successful login, but the session does not maintain.  Are there others out there who have experience with this issue?  I was able to get a simple form and set of related pages to maintain session across the pages from the app, but the same code base does not maintain session when applied to the portal.  Any help is appreciated!

Luminis Version:

Hi,

We use CAS to authenticate the user, but then we create a long term authentication token (longer than the CAS auth token) that the app stores for later use.  When the iPhone contacts our middleware server for data, it passes along that auth token.

We have our iPhone web site here: http://iusask.usask.ca/

You can contact our developers (which is not me) for more information from that site.
