There are several methods for adding new resources into the Muse Proxy Application for handling the rewriting of vendor platforms, the recommended method is by using the Muse Proxy Administrator Console. The rewriting definitions for a vendor platform are stored in XML files, which we call Muse Proxy Sources. Mainly the steps for adding a new Muse Proxy Source are:
  1. Identify the source profile in the existing repository from the EduLib website by accessing this link: https://www.edulib.com/products/muse-proxy/support/muse-proxy-sources-profiles/ Make use of the search functionality to narrow the results. Any term entered in the search box is searched in the source’s identifier and in the following field values from the source profile: NAME and DESCRIPTION. Once identified, click on the name link and a popup window will open with the details of the source’s profile. Click the Download Profile link to download the XML file.
  2. Access your Muse Proxy Administrator Console, the URL should be of the form: https://proxy.domain.com/admin Login with the administrator user and the password that you configured during the setup.
  3. Navigate to the left menu Aplications item, Manage Applications link. Locate the Muse Proxy Application in use and click on the Sources button to access the list of installed sources.
  4. In the Sources page, click on the Create source from an existing profile icon, next to the Quick Filter search box.
  5. In the new page, upload the XML file downloaded at step #1. Upon succesfull upload, you are requested to specify the Source Identifier value, place here the file name without the .xml extension. Also you can change the default name and description values for the source. When done, click the Create button.
  6. The next step is to add the new source profile into a sources group. For doing this, in the Sources page click the Edit Sources Groups icon, next to the Quick Filter search box. In the new page click on the Sources icon from the Actions column, corresponding to the group in which to add the new source. By default only one group exists.
  7. In the new Sources Groups page, click on the plus (+) icon found next to the new source in the List of available sources column.
  8. Test by accessing a proxified link for the newly added resource. E.g. https://proxy.domain.com/applicationID?url=vendor_URL, where replace the hostname, applicationID and vendor_URL with the appropriate values.

The “An error occured when list personal users for application applicationid: Personal Profile Management System will not be used because it could not be initialized. Probably xmldb location is not properly set. [Connection refused]” error is caused by a wrong port setting in MuseAdmin.xml file.

Please check the $MUSE_HOME/admin/MuseAdmin.xml file, locate the tag and check if the port is the same as the one Muse HTTP server/Apache Tomcat (depending on the Muse version) is running on.

There is a “Forgot your password? Recover it.” feature in the Muse applications. When clicking on it, an email containing the configured password will be sent at the user’s email address. For this feature to work, the email settings configured at the application level must be correct and working.
Also, this feature is accessible from within the application, in other words you must login into the application in order to access the “Forgot your password? Recover it.” feature.
In the case of an application configured with IP authentication for “in Campus” and Personal User for “off Campus” access, the end user can access the “Forgot your password? Recover it.” feature only from in Campus.
