Users access the Schoolyear application mainly via Single Sign-On (SSO) integration. Using SSO is the easiest way for both teachers and students to log in. If there is no SSO available, it is also possible to create manual user accounts.
Choose which connection applies to your institution:
- SSO-connection SURFconext
- SSO-connection Entree
Does your institution use SSO but not one of the options above? Please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can look for an alternative solution together.
Does your institution not use SSO at all? In that case you can create manually user accounts in the admin console. To do this, navigate to User management and click invite. Enter the email adress and generate an invite link.
Setup SSO SURFconext integration
- Go to your SURFconext dashboard and go to 'Attributes'. Here you will find the 'SchacHomeOrganisation' of your institution. Send this url to email@example.com.
- Collect the e-mail domains that employees and students will use to log into Schoolyear or will use to do the device check, and send the domains to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Schoolyear sends a request to SURF to establish the SSO-connection with Schoolyear. The institution will receive a message of SURF that the institution needs to approve. We like to hear from you when the approval took place. Then Schoolyear can activate the account and finish the SSO-connection.
