The CodeStorm Concept

Submitted by admin on Tue, 08/25/2009 - 09:00


I posted an article  to announce a collaboration effort I'm calling CodeStorm.  You can read more about it here.
We've already had some great ideas about possible projects to collaborate on.
One that has had a little more activity than the others is searching
I'll create a new thread called Portal Search and we can further discuss how to achieve this successfully since people have shyed away from this function.

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?

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

The same Chrome bug ( 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 ( Firefox 51.0.1 is still safe to use.

Help! Chrome Update and Luminis IV

Submitted by blackwellbs on Mon, 01/30/2017 - 12:52

Google pushed out a Chrome update last week (version 56.0.2924). As Chrome auto-updates, we have many reports of Luminis IV not working. The user gets:

Sorry, but uPortal encountered an error that is preventing it from rendering. The error must be corrected by system administrators.

My Chrome install was still sitting at the previous version and worked fine. I manually updated to this latest version and sure enough I get the error as well. Clearing cache or removing/re-installing does nothing.

Anyone have some recommendations? The error in cp.log is:

Using 8 digit birthdate for password?

Submitted by juliehober on Mon, 10/05/2015 - 10:57

Is anyone using 8 digit birth date for the students initial password? We currently use 6 which the info is set over from Banner I need to change it to 8 but all the documentation I'm seeing from Ellucian says No to make it a random password instead. Random may be more secure but it doesn't work for us right now! Any suggestions?


Luminis IV add action that utilizes some kind of "onOpen"

Submitted by fontnest on Tue, 09/22/2015 - 10:10

I have a request from our Institutional Effectiveness department to add a line to the "Welcome John Doe, you are currently logged in" display at the top of the Home tab in Luminis.

I don't have any idea where to hack into that operation that obviously grabs the User ID at login and brings in the name to display the message.

But even if I did, I'm not sure how I could "hitch a ride" on that process, connect to the banner database and find the Major/Concentration and add it to the displayed message.
