Creating a My Courses portlet with more information

Submitted by jmacke on Mon, 02/20/2017 - 17:10


We would like to create a portlet that is similar to My Courses, but with some additional information. Courses that are not yet active at the beginning of the semester (2nd 8-week courses, or those with a different start date than the rest of the semester), or haven't been made active by the professor, do not show in My Courses. Students would also like to see additional information with building/room codes, meeting times, start/stop times. Ideally it would list all of this in a portlet instead of being a link to a schedule. Has anyone created a portlet like this?

Luminis5 CAS and Shibboleth Integration

Submitted by larrypeng on Wed, 02/08/2017 - 11:35



We have Luminis 5.2.2 in production. CAS is installed with Luminis installer. We are deploying a Shibboleth server on campus in order to add SAML support. In order to provide a seamless SSO experience, we are trying to figure out the best way to integrate Luminis CAS and Shibboleth. We wonder if any school has gone through similar process and we would like to hear from you about your successful experience and recommendations. Your response will be much appreciated!

old luminis 4 bookmarks in luminis 5

Submitted by bergesonm on Tue, 01/10/2017 - 16:05



We are seeing an issue where new students people in the system (new to luminis 5 this month) use old luminis 4 book marks and get prompted for a username and password and then set up security questions and then get a page not found error.

The example could be like this https://domain/cp/home/check/pre

The system takes it and will fail after redirecting after the student sets up their security questions with a 404 page not found.

Any way to mitigate this?



Upgrade or Reinstall 5.04 to 5.3

Submitted by lyounger on Thu, 10/06/2016 - 17:37


We've fallen very far behind on our upgrading schedule for Luminis. We are at a critical point that we need to get the new version running. I'm wondering if this group has any advice regarding the path to take...Upgrade our 5.04 HF version to 5.3? or do a complete reinstall of the 5.3 system?

The tech who did our original install is long gone and we have never had a true replacement for that position. The original server architecture and installation documentation doesn't exist.

Getting User Information in Web Content Display

Submitted by cparsons on Tue, 10/04/2016 - 10:54


We are try to create a simple popup that user must agree to before continuing in the system. The popup need to be able to pull some identifiable information such as Luminis id and then pass that to the database and check to see if a comment is stored that they have accepted the agreement.

Here is the break down:

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.
