How to register a resource

Here are the steps to register a resource in the Fédération Éducation-Recherche. These steps are essentially technical. For the administrative procedures see the "How to become a partner" page.

Your organization should:

  1. comply to the conditions of the partner charter available in this page;
  2. make sure that your application is technically compatible with identity federation technology;
  3. read the Technical Framework and make sure it is compatible with your Service Provider software setup;
  4. follow the steps to register as a partner in the federation unless it's already registered;
  5. install, configure the “Shibboleth service provider” and test it against our test federation . This step can be made before or during the previous steps;
  6. register the resource in the Fédération Éducation-Recherche (production environment). This step requires that your registration as partner (step 4) gets validated first; you will receive a notification email;
  7. run a Discovery Service and make your SP use our production metadata file ;
