"IP on campus/personal account off campus" authentication workflow

Below are the steps to enable and configure the "IP on campus/personal account off campus" authentication workflow for a MuseKnowledge Application. Note that they apply for versions starting with 7.6.

1) Configure the login modules.

Edit the ${ICE_HOME}/jaas.config file, locate the application entry for which to make the settings

(refered below ad AppID). It should look like below:

AppID {
com.edulib.ice.security.authentication.ICELoginModuleXML required passwords="${ICE_HOME}/profiles/passwords.xml";
};

The entry must be modified to look like below:

AppID {
com.edulib.ice.security.authentication.ICELoginModuleXML required passwords="${ICE_HOME}/profiles/passwords.xml" justUser="true";
com.edulib.ice.security.authentication.ICELoginModuleIP sufficient hosts="${ICE_HOME}/profiles/hosts.xml";
com.edulib.ice.security.authentication.ICELoginModulePPMS required xmldbLocation="xmldb:exist:http://admin:@localhost:8000/xmldb/exist/xmlrpc";
};

(the 8000 port must be adjusted accordingly as per the Tomcat's installation port)

2) Add the allowed IP(s) for the IP authentication

Login into the MCAA console, select the application from the list (AppID) and click on the "Login Modules" left menu. In the login modules listing click the "Edit" link corresponding to the ICELoginModuleXML module. In the new panel click the "Insert" link and start adding the IP(s). Consult the available help details to see the accepted format entries.

3) Make the end-user interface changes

Login into the MCAA console, select the application from the list (AppID) and click on the "Application General Settings->Interface Options" left menu link. In the Branding tab, "Login Page" section, press the "Load remap U/P Form", then click the Update button from the bottom of the page.

4) Enable the "My Account" functionality

 Login into the MCAA console, select the application from the list (AppID) and click on the "Application General Settings->Interface Options" left menu link. In the Functionality tab, locate the My Account" section and enable the "Enable Account:", "Enable Saved Searches" and "Enable WorkRoom" features. 

From this moment the "IP on campus/personal account off campus" authentication workflow should work, the access URL to use is:

 http://hostname:port/muse/logon/AppID/autologin.html
