user account purge process

Submitted by melissa.zver@tr... on Tue, 09/01/2015 - 11:27


We have our quarterly AD purge process that will be occurring next week. In our previous LP4 environment, we would have a file that we would run cptool against to purge those accounts in LP4 LDAP.
Since LP5 does not have its own LDAP and the accounts are housed in the database, how would we run the purge process within LP5?

Session Variable issues

Submitted by tmanigly on Thu, 08/27/2015 - 15:50


Has anyone encountered any issues using session variables in Luminis 5? We have several applications that ran fine in Luminis 4 but are having some strange issues in Luminis 5. The session variables seem to be acting like application variables.

For example, if we have a session variable that stores my name 'Tom' and displays it on the page, it will show up fine for me if I am the first one to access the application. However, if another user uses the application, it still shows my name to them even though they should have their own session.

Permanent SSL Certificate

Submitted by bsteward on Tue, 08/04/2015 - 12:27


Does anyone have any tips or instructions on how to install an existing wildcard certificate as the permanent ssl certificate on the CAS, Admin, and Portal servers? I've asked consultants, opened tickets, and read the install guide, but I have yet to find the "right" combination of commands. I'm pretty sure that someone is out there that has successfully accomplished this. Any tips or help, will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Web Proxies with LP5

Submitted by rdenyar on Fri, 07/31/2015 - 11:33


We have a simple web proxy that uses a student’s ID to get some account details. My question is around passing the login id to a web proxy? I’m assuming that it must be as easy as Luminis 4 where I just needed to define the variable, but I’m hoping someone can point out where I can set this or how I can configure the web proxy portlet to pass this variable.


LP5 segments for targeted announcements

Submitted by Jason on Thu, 07/30/2015 - 18:16


In Luminis 4, we can do a 'cptool import segment' command to import a group of people that can then be sent a targeted message.

In Luminis 5, this feature has yet to be implemented.

LP5 does have dynamic groups that can be used to send a targeted announcement though. Has anyone written a script to programmatically create dynamic groups based on a list of people or segment extract from Banner? If not, I suspect I'll have to write something soon. I'll post it.

source code for luminis api

Submitted by alin.tomoiaga@t... on Fri, 07/17/2015 - 22:05


Do you know if we can get access to the source code for the luminis api?

Specifically I need the source code for in luminis-security-sprinweb.jar.
It is a class with inner classes and decompilers do not do a very good job.

Thank you,

Liferay error messages

Submitted by Jason on Thu, 07/16/2015 - 19:49


I found that the default error message for 404 was not using our custom theme. It used the pink Ellucian theme. I found a way to direct 404's to a custom page like this:

$CP_ROOT/products/tomcat/tomcat-admin and portal/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/

I added this:

Then in $CP_ROOT/products/tomcat/tomcat-admin and portal/webapps/ROOT/html/portal/ I put 404.html. It required a restart before it recognized the 404 file.
