Performing tests with the Test identity provider

Once you have registered your resource in the Test federation, you can try to authenticate with the test identity provider (IdP). This IdP contains two different account:

  1. student 1: username = etudiant1 / password = etudiant1
  2. student 2: username = etudiant2 / password = etudiant2
  3. An affiliate (library-walk-in): username = lecteur1 / password = lecteur1
  4. an employee: : username = personnel1 / password = personnel1

You can see the user's attributes it can provide if you connect to the test resource choosing the test identity provider in the drop-down list called Fédération Education-Recherche - IdP de Test.

Deactivated for now : The error logs of the test IdP above are available on this page.
