  • 2. FIX THE RIGHT PROBLEMS
  • http://xkcd.com/763/
  • ACCOUNT PROBLEM• PROBLEM: My institution is taking a long time to properly register students and provision them with accounts, so there is a gap when students do not have the credentials to access online resources.• QUESTION: can i create ‘guest accounts’ with Shibboleth to get around this problem?
  • RESPONSE?• It’s up to an institution whether or not they want to create guest accounts within their system, but generally it is bad practice;• It should take the same time to provision a guest account as to provision a guest account, if not, the IDM system is broken;• If a student is not formally registered and provisioned in your system, they aren’t ‘eligible users’ and shouldn’t be using resources;• The provisioning process needs fixing, you don’t need to find a library workaround.
