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.

Exclude pages on portal node from CAS authentication

Submitted by ajohndss on Wed, 07/15/2015 - 15:54


Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone has modified their luminis config to exclude images/css/js/html/jsp directories and files from requiring CAS authentication on Luminis Portal Node.

I tried a combination of different filters on web.xml and luminis-liferay-security.xml but haven't been able to accomplish it. I would very much appreciate any help or guidance you are able to give me.


create Luminis user programatically

Submitted by alin.tomoiaga@t... on Tue, 07/07/2015 - 16:38


How can we create a Luminis user programatically?

I am using all the Ellucian provided functions that I can find and they do not create a user anywhere (User_, LP_USER tables or the ldap server )and they do not produce any errors or other messages in the logs; what I am missing?

DelegatingPersonService ps = new DelegatingPersonService();

Person p = null;

Classified Ads for LP5?

Submitted by deurv on Mon, 07/06/2015 - 14:00

In LP4 I had a Classified Ad channel. I believe I got the instructions from another univeristy (maybe University of Sackatchewan). I tried to look up Liferay portlets but didn't see anything alongs these lines.

Does someone have a portlet for this use and would you be willing to share it? I'm on LP5.2.2.

GCF connector pickup.reponse not deauthenticating

Submitted by rcarvell on Mon, 06/15/2015 - 09:10


We are going live with Luminis 5 in 2 weeks. We have been on Luminis 4 for years. We have an applicant (SSB) CPIP connector in 4.

We imported the cpip connector to 5. We tweaked with Ellucian's help and have the authentication working. The problem is with the deauthentication.

I am able to successfully test through the ADMIN GCF Connector portlet. When I press the deauthentication button, it successfully deauthenticates. I also see in the deauthenticate called in the luminis.log.
