Has anyone created a GCF for Banner 8

Submitted by jshaye on Tue, 01/03/2012 - 13:39

I've been tasked with creating a GCF to Banner 8. We have our Banner 8 using ldap authentication, so all I have to do is pass the ID and PASSWORD. I'm doing that and it is passing the credentials. The problem I am having is with the cookie TESTID, the banner login pages are looking for it. I have some javascript in my gcf.properties file that create the cookie but banner appears to just ignore it.

Any ideas?

Hi,
We have a pickup.response type GCF connector and use the following Java Script in the .properties file to set the Banner cookie (the HTML tags have been edited so that the code is visible here):

mydusis8.pickup.response = \
HTML \
BODY \
form method="post" action="https://ssb.yourschool.edu/pls/PROD/twbkwbis.P_ValLogin" name="loginForm" \
input type="hidden" name="sid" value="~{_USERNAME}" \
input type="hidden" name="PIN" value="~{_PASSWORD}" \
/form \
SCRIPT language="JavaScript" \
document.cookie='TESTID=set; path=/pls/PROD; domain=yourschool.edu';\
document.loginForm.submit();\
/SCRIPT \
/BODY /HTML
