Can we pull the User Name (SPRIDEN_ID in Banner) from within a Channel to have the User Name display in a Channel?

Submitted by keneeb on Tue, 07/24/2012 - 09:03

I want to be able to display the Luminis "User Name" (SPRIDEN_ID) in a Channel once the Channel is displayed. I can use Javascript, but I do not know what to pull if the User Name is available?


- S00024281 is your User Name.

Lots of Targeted Announcements: How do you do it?

Submitted by Christine on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 11:00

Hey all!

We have an initiative here at TNS to reduce the amount of emails that students receive from the university. As a result, we are planning to use Targeted Announcements in Luminis much more extensively.

I'm working with our Banner guru, and we wanted to see if anyone has implemented something like this...

We are planning to assign each of our students to a degree program using Groups as opposed to Roles, as it seems like this would overload our role processing. Then when we send announcements, the announcement would be sent to the proper group(s).

Simple way just to output SIS.ID or SCT.ID in link? It must exist!

Greetings all,

I need to create a link to an external system, but it does not have to do all the fancy stuff that is involved with SSO using CPIP. What I need is really, really simple, and I'm going crazy here trying to figure out how to make it happen.

Luminis III new CPIP SSO not working, others do

I'm having a serious issue getting a new SSO link working. I took over maintenance of our portal after the previous developer moved on. I do not know very much about UNIX, and very little about Luminis. I've made do so far, but now I'm stumped.

We need to get this link working by Monday, and I've run out of ideas.

All we need to do is send the student ID (datatelId) via a form element to an external page. We do not need to get anything back from the external site, and do not need to encrypt the datatelId. Very simple, right?

Email channel error type 0

We are having some trouble with our mail in our portal (on the first day of term, of course).

When users log in, they see a general channel error:
Channel Error:

An unknown error occurred attempting to display the channel. This may be due to a configuration issue with the account or the mail server could be down.

When they attempt to visit the mail center, they get this:

Encountered an unknown error.

How do I enable SSL on my LDAP?

Submitted by mguevara5151 on Wed, 05/11/2011 - 10:45

Let's see...Distance Learning is implementing a help desk software that will tie in to our Luminis LDAP for authentication. I'm not exactly sure what problems they are having, but they are asking for some ports to be opened on the firewall. I don't know why, if they are supposedly hosting this software internally, but anyway, I know one solution to protect our data would be to enable SSL on LDAP. Is this difficult to accomplish? What do I need to do?

We are experiencing very slow response times from our LDAP.

We are experiencing very slow response times from our LDAP. It seems to be mostly affecting Course Studio and Live Event processing. I am removing old semesters and it helped some but it is slow, removes about 20-30 courses per hour.
I would also like to clean up the student database by removing students who have never logged in or have not logged in for more than two years. Does anyone have an easy method they would like to share? or a clue why this is so slow. SCT has not been able to help much at this point.
