Can you have shibboleth send back the opusid?

Can you have uid as a subject identifier in addition to the others?

Or you could write your own servlet filter that does the docoding and sets the opusid for the user or remote user or whatever.  I wouldn’t edit the grouper code, you just need your own jar which is the servlet filter and register in web.xml before the other filters.  This would be able to be reused in other ucla java apps as well (or maybe someone has already done this J)

Thanks Karthik,


OpusId is subject identifier in sources.xml in grouperUi but since Shibboleth only sends back UID, I need to get the OpusId based on the UID and use that OpusId for session so that Grouper sees that person as a valid user.

Hey Vivek,

How about setting opusId as a subjectIdentifier?

Subject: [grouper-users] Shibboleth GrouperUi Integration




I integrated Shibboleth with GrouperUi. It worked fine but the issue is that Shibboleth is passing back UID as the main identifier and the source of the users looks like:


OpusId, UID, Name, Email

1,           123, Test,  


And in the sources.xml, I need to keep the subjectIdCol as OpusId. So, Is there some configuration or method available to get the subjectIdCol based on the some other column in the same view or I will need to write code in the GrouperUiFilter to get the OpusId based on UID and then set that in session so that grouper see it as a valid user?
