The Central Authentication Service (CAS) protocol is supported by Roompact as a Single Sign-On integration option. CAS is easy to use and and can be set up very rapidly if the institution has a CAS server available.
The general CAS procedure is as follows:
Note that steps 4 - 6 are completely transparent to the user and instantaneous. The user gets redirected and sees their dashboard immediately after entering their login credentials.
For successful integration, Roompact needs the following pieces of information:
<cas:serviceResponse xmlns:cas='http://www.yale.edu/tp/cas'> <cas:authenticationSuccess> <cas:user>NetID</cas:user> </cas:authenticationSuccess> </cas:serviceResponse>
A member of Roompact’s technical team will be able to assist you in configuring CAS for your institution. If you do not already have a technical contact at Roompact, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a staff member will be in contact with you.
