The following are the steps to integrate PubCookie into uPortal 2.4.x:

  1. Download the lastest version http://www.pubcookie.org/ and install in Apache or IIS as documented in PubCookie.
  2. In Apache httpd.conf, add the following lines, making the obvious name changes:
  3. In uPortal/WEB-INF/classes/properties, change the PersonManagerFactory line in portal.properties:
  4. In security.properties, change the root lines to:
  5. Edit webpages/stylesheets/org/jasig/portal/channels/CLogin/html.xsl, replacing the textfield and password fields to a link like
  6. Deploy the CLogin/html.xsl
  7. Restart the portal

When the user clicks on the Login link and has not authenticated, Pubcookie should redirect to the Pubcookie server to
authentication. When authenticated, the user will be redirected back to the Login where the REMOTE_USER variable will
be used to identify the user and the login process will be complete.

  1. With the latest PubCookie (3.2?) you probably want to use the "GET" method in the login
    form so as to avoid an extra dialog during the PubCookie login. Since no actual information
    passed in this form, there is no security issue with using GET instead of POST.
