Open ssb links in frame like Lum IV did.

Submitted by Jason on Wed, 10/07/2015 - 19:45


As anyone found a way to open a deep link to ssb inside a maximized frame within LP5?

We've just started exploring. The first thought that came to mind was to hide an iframe channel on each tab. Then an ssb link would execute some javascript to both change the src= value of the iframe channel as well as execute the maximize button. That seems a bit hackish though, and might be prone to browser bugs over time.

We just got our ssomanager installed and working, so I am just beginning to explore the ssb links.

LP 5, AD and password sync

Submitted by zzbroud on Thu, 10/01/2015 - 09:55


We are beginning a test install of LP 5 and want to use AD credentials for authentication if possible. Currently our AD and Luminis usernames are not the same. We are using first.last (3rd Party Id) for Luminis and (userPrincipalName) with AD. Many of our newer users have never used sAMAccountName to login to anything.


1. Is it possible to use a username in the format of for Luminis 5?

Luminis 5 load testing

Submitted by bsteward on Wed, 09/30/2015 - 12:52


We are looking to move to Luminis 5. We've been using Luminins 4 for a few years now and typically max out at 400 concurrent sessions during peak registration. Does anyone else that is currently using Luminis 5 have any numbers that they might could share? We don't have a load balancer and would like to stay away from it, but we also want to know that Luminis 5 will handle the load. Thanks!

Does anyone have the steps for sending a Smart Event or Notify Event?

In the Smart events and Notify events (p. 150) of the Luminis Platform Administration Guide. Release 5.2.2. March 2015, Smart events and Notify events are mentioned. Does anyone know the steps that I need to go through to send them? Thanks in advance for your help. S-

Screenshot Examples

Submitted by jhoover on Fri, 09/25/2015 - 14:48


Our institution is about to begin the process of moving (not migrating) from Luminis IV to 4 and we are beginning committee meetings to determine content and layout for the new portal. I would love to see some screenshots and examples of YOUR Luminis 5 implementations. Specifically, we are interested on seeing what both current students and faculty/staff see upon initially logging in based on their roles. If anyone can provide some samples or point me in the direction of where I might find some, I would greatly appreciate it.

Navigating to a new tab within Luminis 5

Submitted by dconner on Fri, 09/18/2015 - 17:20


We are working on moving to Luminis 5. In Luminis 4, I developed a jsp page that submits a post request to single sign into our scheduling system. I am working on creating a portlet for luminis 5 that does the same thing. My code is below. My expectation was that by using target="_blank" in my link that it would popup into a a new tab or page and life would be good. However, what happens is that it pops up in a new tab to the left, but stays within the portal and the portal does a refresh. Can any one help me?

INB & SSB Links In An L5 Targeted Channel

Submitted by GerryFromPace on Tue, 09/08/2015 - 09:33


Hi Luminari:

After being away from anything LUMINIS for more than 6 years, except for the occasional CPIP, I've been asked to return to help with LUMINIS support. We are moving to LUMINIS 5, but it has been troubled, in particular, the SSO for INB and SSB. Technicians from Ellucian were brought in and they had problems, I'm told there were at least two (and a few months) before they got in working!

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?
