2. FIX THE RIGHT PROBLEMS
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.
