Roompact is configured as a Shibboleth Service Provider (SP) and supports user authentication using the SAML 2.0 protocol. This allows for a single sign-on integration to be deployed at any institution that has a Shibboleth, Active Directory Federation Services, or other SAML 2.0 Identity Provider (IdP) configured.
The general SAML-based authentication procedure is as follows:
NOTE: Users can skip step 1 if the institution opts to embed a Roompact SAML login URL in portal website or use some other means of distribution. This URL is institution-specific and can be provided upon request.
NOTE: Steps 4 - 7 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:
NOTE: The unique identifier attribute must be an exact match of the
user_uidfield sent via the student roster API
