This document covers configuration and UI for the Library Wiki Where Are You From (WAYF) discovery service page.

Current Implementations


If you are already logged into the production or dev Library wikis or the UCLA wiki, you will not see the WAYF page when you click on the links above.


This comment thread started prior to this page, so I am putting it here for completeness. All subsequent comments should be done via the comment mechanism.

wrt the second link – isn’t “remember for session” kind of hinky? it’s a SSO, so it’s going to remember who’s logged in under what authentication system for a session-length no matter what – no?

Yea, it is confusing. Session in this case means, "until you quit your browser". This is default WAYF behavior for this app, so I can change the wording, or just have two options, Never and 30 days. Or we could have Never, 1 day, 7 days, 30 days, etc. I am open to suggestions.

You can look at the default, out-of-the-box version by doing the following:

1) Go to:
2) Click on "Log In" in the upper right-hand corner

hmmm.. if you’re going to have a length like 30 days, it seems like there would need be some way for the user to clear that choice on day 22, for example. following from that, if you have a way for the user to clear the choice, it seems like the remember could just be boiled down to a checkbox ala ‘remember my choice’.

if there’s no way to clear the choice, the login UI could be modified to always have the pulldown, have the pulldown on the same page as one enters their credentials, and have the pulldown pre-selected to the last chosen on successful login value. (and scrap the ‘remember’ or not).
