Passwords from within Luminis 5

Submitted by sporb on Mon, 04/21/2014 - 15:26


We have one SSO connection that isn't handled by CAS or Shib, and appears to break the basic rules for GCF connectors - the delivered page is the same url as the login page.

In our previous version we built a SOAP-based call that passes in userid and password and continues on with some token-generating logic.

I could just reproduce this in a Portlet, but I don't see any way to get the logged in user's password from within the Portlet.

In our previous portal (LP3) we would call:

Luminis 5.1 RESTful services and CAS

Submitted by baileya on Mon, 04/21/2014 - 11:31


I am looking to utilize the Luminis RESTful services found at: https://(admin portal)/luminis/luminisService/rest and https://(admin portal)/luminis/luminisService/core.

With the CAS SSO security, my service calls are all intercepted and redirected to the login page.

I checked to see which beans are available via JMX, but all I see is 2 methods for adding and removing roles to people. I am looking to automate creation of the roles and groups, among other things.

Creating non-Banner users in LP5

Submitted by sacilot on Tue, 04/01/2014 - 17:58


Hi All,

We have a requirement to be able to programattically create "guest" users in Luminis, meaning we don't want them in Banner, which is where our "official" users are being imported from.

I know that officially Ellucian hasn't yet delivered an API to create users/roles/etc. but I was curious if anyone has done anything along these lines?


User Can't Access Their My Private Pages

Submitted by lyounger on Mon, 03/31/2014 - 12:24


I've been troubleshooting an unusual issue. When one of our users tries to access her pages under her My Private Pages tab, all of her portal navigation disappears and the body of the page is blank. This issue follows her to other computers and other browsers and occurs in Test and Prod. The issue does not effect the pages under her My Public Pages tab. She was able to access these private pages during her training at our roll out over a year ago,

When I log on to the portal from her computer, I have no issue accessing my private pages.

LP5 Themes

For anyone that has created LP5 themes, how did it go for you?

I'm using the 5.1 admin guide and I've (with support's help) come across documentation errors concerning the WEB-INF xml files. Namely that your theme working folder should not have any xml files in WEB-INF, just the file.

Luminis 5 Multi-Server Control Script

Submitted by dnase on Mon, 03/24/2014 - 12:42

Hi There,

I made a simple script that will start, stop, or bounce all of my Luminis 5.1 servers in succession. I posted it to my github here:

Let me know if you find it useful, and if you have any questions or need help setting up SSH key forwarding.

Also note that you don't need to add the admin server (or server where you are executing the script) to the script.
